E-Library Construction

The  Mainapokhari, Dolakha district is located in the north-eastern part of Nepal at the altitude of 2000m. The only feasible way to access this area is by vehicle over a narrow road that leads out of the Kathmandu valley for a distance of 200 kilometers, which takes the ‘express’ coach an astonishing 8 hours.  

The Hanumanteshwor School in Maina Pokhari is the educational center of the region, providing primary and secondary level education, as well as university courses. A small team of dedicated teachers trained in Kathmandu delivers early morning courses (6-10am) for university students who are all working during the day, and, directly afterward, primary and secondary level education to classes with an average size of 65 students, 6 days a week. Himalayan Care Hands worked together with students, teachers, and volunteers from The International Award for Young People to renovate some of the classrooms in 2013, but much work remains to be done. After the earthquake, several classrooms, the library, and the school canteen collapsed and students have been staying in temporary bamboo rooms since then.

Types of activities:

  • E-library room construction
  • Furnishing of E-library
  • E-books
