SSHL visiting Kunchok

 

Some days ago we came to Kunchock. The way was very difficult but when we finally arrived, the whole village was waiting. For the first time the children could see their 3 new classrooms from inside. We got a very welcoming feeling, proud to be a part of this. First building finished even earthquake safe. We also had with us : school material, swedish children books in English, footballs and sweets – ver y popular not just for the children. Thank you all for contribute. Next the carpeted will be delivered and the Lego we got from Danmark.
This is the absolutely right place to support. The village is completely destroyed. Kunchock is in an area were the Earthquake hit most.

Opening ceremonies of the first building

 

March 28, 2016,  an opening ceremony for the first three classrooms in Kunchok was held. The classrooms are made of prefabricated walls which are safer during an earthquake. That is the only way you are allowed to build houses in Nepal right now. Make a Kid Smile was present together with students from SSHL in Sweden.

Our next goal is to build another 4 classrooms so that all children up to grade 5 have a one.
