HelpMyStudy Nepal has been conducting various programs, surveys, and field visits to different parts of Nepal to find out about the condition of schools and students. This time HMS Nepal conducted 2 day field visit to Maneshwara VDC, Sindhupalchok on the 30th of April and the 1st of May, 2016. The visit was conducted by a team of eleven that included trainees, volunteers, and staff member. The visit aimed to distribute stationery items to children attending Shree Setidevi Prathamik Vidyalaya, Sangbari.
Sangbari is a small locality of 29 households in Maneshwara VDC in Sindhupalchok district. Shree Setidevi Prathamik Vidyalaya is a government-run primary school that is attended by fewer than 50 students; contributors to this low number being the lack of a proper toilet, lack of stationeries and uniforms, lack of a provision for school lunch and safe drinking water, and improperly shielded class. The classes are run in a temporary shelter because government regulation forbids the people from repairing the previous government owned school building. Although this shelter does offer a sheet metal roof, it has no walls. Thus it becomes difficult to run classes in rainy and windy weather. The school has thus requested assistance in these matters.
The houses of Sangbari no longer remain standing, however, because of the tremor and aftershocks of the earthquake. The chief occupation of people here is agriculture with animal husbandry practiced widely. Although farming used to be practiced widely, a major portion of the cultivable land has been swept away by the landslide that followed the earthquake. The locality is connected to the nearby town of Bahrabise by an unmaintained dirt track that is traversable by a single bus at a time. As such, the locals do not have immediate access to health services and law enforcements. As part of disaster relief, each family was awarded Rs. 15,000/- only.
