The success of the school in attracting children from the surrounding valleys means it now needs to be bigger! During 2012 generous funding and support from the Rothchild Foundation and the Style Group has made this possible.
This recent funding has enabled local carpenters, under the supervision of CAN’s Buildings Overseer Gobinda Sharma, to construct a second floor to the school and this work is now well under way. The photos below show the work taking place. Special thanks go to CAN supporters Julian and Emmy Freeman-Attwood for supporting the application to the Rothchild Foundation on CAN’s behalf.
The Style group, through the wonderful efforts of Jodi Tweed, have also been instrumental to the success of the school extension. Jodi and the Style Group supports the salaries of two Tibetan speaking teachers (who work along side a teacher provided by the government), have provided furniture and bookshelves and have attracted more children to the school from villages beyond Lihi by making free school lunches available. Not afraid of hard work themselves, the Style team have also offered practical help by varnishing the inside wood work on a recent visit!
