The aim of "The Nepal School Project" is that we can establish a better learning environment for the less fortunate children of the world. This includes repairing the building to a better condition, adding stationary, books, and furniture.
The school is located near Gorkha in Nepal.
Name of the school: Shree Bhairabi Primary School
Address: Arupokhara- 6, Ratamate, Gorkha.
