We are extremely happy to share the news that the construction work has finally been completed after a long wait. Our school was nearing completion before the devastating earthquake damaged the physical structure of the building. We started the repair work again after waiting over a year following the new building code set by government. Inauguration Ceremony is scheduled for February 15th, 2017. Below are few of the most recent pictures of the school building. Thank you to all our team members, volunteers and donors who donated their valuable time, effort and donation to make this great cause possible. Now more than 300 kids in Mankha will be able to benefit from our school. Thank you!Mankha SchoolMankha School

We finally have a picture of our new school in Mankha that was nearing completion. It is damaged, but we are told structurally sound and can be repaired! Unfortunately, the rest of Mankha isn’t. DH Board members will be there to support the villagers in Mankha. We didn’t cancel our trip rather we extended our trip by a week to help. We will be there to help with reconstruction of village now instead of School Grand Opening Ceremony.
