Following the Earthquake in Nepal in 2015, The Juniper Trust has focused on the reconstruction of damaged schools in remote areas that would otherwise receive little help. In just over three years, 14 schools have now been rebuilt and a hostel for blind students in Kathmandu reconstructed. This has been an incredible achievement thanks to all the hard work from volunteers and donations gratefully received.
Continuing where there is still a need, the Juniper Trust plan to raise a further £50,000 to rebuild three schools in 2019 two community primary schools in the villages of Rawa Dolu and Vidhyadatri Khaptel and a smaller Kindergarten at Bamti. These remote villages are close to Bhandar, approximately 100km from Kathmandu and are still using temporary shelters for schools, almost 4 years after the earthquake.
Work has already started on a new three-classroom school and a new toilet block for 50 children in in Rawa Dolu Village, thanks to donations from Cicerone Press who, as part of their 50th Celebrations, are kindly supporting the Juniper Trust. Costwold Outdoor and KE Adventure Travel, the Juniper Trusts partner for over 20 years have offered their support to help raise funds for Vidhyadatri school.
We hope to complete all three schools by November 2019.
