Site Preparation - Melamchi: Murari forwarded the office two images, one showing members of the community hard at work preparing the road linking the village to the school/hostel site and the second showing the road as it neared completion. Once this linking road has been completed [and hopefully before the monsoon sets in] it will be possible to transport all the materials needed for the next stage in the reconstruction of the school and the school hostels.

Keshab always includes some very interesting photographs of the project sites especially the schools at Birendra and Bahrabise. It is also very exciting to see construction well under way at Ghunsa school as well as the image of the  footings for the demonstration home. The latter is another initiative funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
