  • School Buildings for Lower Langtang

    Although the Government has permitted to open schools in most of the every villages in Lower Langtang region's villages of Nuwakot District of Nepal is suffering from poor school infrastructures such as school buildings, poor class room, poor outer environment, Libraries, Books and stationary, lack of qualified Teachers and reasonable budget from the Government.

  • What

    The aim of this project is to build a primary school for 250 indigenous Tamang children in Kaaule a village in the Lower Langtang region of Nepal.Read More
  • Why

    Only 110 km from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, Kaaule has no electricity, there is no public transport to it and its inhabitants often face famine. Education has been totally neglected by the government - there is no school able to provide a basic primary education in the native language.Read More
  • How

    Together with the village elders we put together a plan: the land and basic materials for building the school, as well as all the labor will be provided by the villagers. The total cost of the project is around $14,500 - to be gathered through fundraising. Upon gathering the necessary money, I (Misha Kapushesky) will travel to Nepal and participate in the early stages of the construction. The entire project is estimated to take 2-3 months, start to finish.Read More

  • Are We a Registered Charity?

    No, we are not. We considered registering as a charity, but the amount of paperwork for such a comparatively small project is not worth it. We tried to partner with an existing registered charity, CANepal ( for this project, but after very long and protracted discussions (which seemed promising for a while), they decided to not work together. Anyway, we are well on the way to our goal, as you'll be able to see from the blog, and we'll manage without registering.Read More
  • Bonus!

    As an additional incentive to donate to this project, we are offering one free 10-day trek in Nepal for two highest donors - you will only need to pay for the airfare to Kathmandu and back, the rest (accommodation, food, porters and guide) will be free. We will help you choose a trek that fits your abilities, interests and possible times.Read More
