On the 11th of May 2016, Nepal-Hilfe team agreed to build 2 washrooms with tin roof at Shree Kapileshowr Lower Secondary School, Jhagajholi, Ratmata-9, Dhungechour, Sindhuli. Jagajholi was one of the most devastated areas due to the earthquake of 25th April 2015, followed by several after shucks. Our team visited and found that the school indeed required a well-build washroom to accommodate its 150 students.

Chaulagai, who was already on the wayto receive us.  We had lunch together and walked on the country side for one and half hour up to the school. The structural condition of the school was substantial damaged. The government had introduced a system for accessing the harm the earthquake had done to any infrastructure by giving them stickers. The building had got 2 red stickers and one green meaning that the 2 buildings were not be used. Out of three building 1 had collapsed and one red sticker building was still functions as a classroom despite the danger of collapsing.


There were 8 members waiting for us at the school office including 5 school teachers, a mason, a parent and the chair person of school management committee. They had prepared an estimation cost for one permanent toilet with cemented roof. The overall

estimate cost to complete building adding with transportation was higher than estimated. The estimated cost of school was Rs 125700/- .  Lacking enough budgets to follow the given estimation, at the end of the discussed CDN team changed their cost plan and agreed upon to build 2 cemented washrooms with tin roof separated for both male and female.

There were two Temporary Learning Classes with three rooms where 6 classes were

running simultaneously. It was evident that more classrooms were needed. Since the school had already had an agreement with government to construct permanent five room building, we supposed that building a proper washroom could be a huge support for the school.
