Educating Children ~ Empowering Communities
Shree Bhagawati Himalaya Higher Secondary School
Shree Bhagawati Himalaya Higher Secondary School was first established in 1958 as a primary school with the support of local guardians and social workers of Ghairung and Tanglichowk Village Development Committees.
The school was founded by permission of king Mahendra of Nepal and has grown steadily since then.
In its early years, only primary classes were conducted. In 1977, lower secondary classes were added and in 1984 it became a high school. Eventually, in 2008, the school was granted permission to conduct higher secondary education.
The school consists of 6 buildings housing 30 classrooms in total. The oldest building was built in 1990 and the newest was built in 2006.
The epicenter of the April 2015 Earthquake was less than 30 miles from the school. Some buildings were reduced to rubble, and all but two classrooms have been condemned. Manisha UK, with huge support from our twin schools, is assisting with the construction of 4 new classrooms.
The village of Batase suffered huge damage during the earthquakes and many villagers have spent a long time living in poor quality temporary shelters. Local infrastructure has been severely effected, and the local economy may never recover as skilled villagers leave for cities or to seek work abroad.
