Buddheshowri Lower Secondary School
2 Classroom Addition
Students Attending Yearly
Our relationship with the Lisanku village began in the spring of 2008, when Kristina Pritchard, along with Norbu Lama, travelled there to bring educational supplies to four different schools in the area. It was recognized that the Buddheshowri Lower Secondary School suffered from overcrowding, due to the inadequate facilities for the large number of students attending the school.
Ground work for the school began in 2009 and by the following year the two classroom addition was up and running. This was Uphill's first official project as a not for profit. The project cost was $20,000 CAD and was entirely funded by Uphill Both Ways. More than 300 students attend the school yearly and benefit from the additional classroom space and supplied benches, desks, chalk boards, and teaching materials.
