Village School renovated
It was very hot day with high humidity (42 C/107.6 F). It was such a hot day without any cloud that we were drenched with sweat and covered with dirt when we arrived at the school.
Ganghar village school was renovated and we were invited to its opening ceremony. Two years ago, the school was burned down with parts of walls left standing; the students had to study on the ground.
They were able to reconstruct the school with a funding from Binchae foundation.

Everyone – village chief, the principal, teahers— who attended the ceremony was overjoyed
They used to cancel the classes on a rainy day but since they are able to study inside that they don’t have to—a parent who sends 5 children to the school mentioned.
We brought 100 notebooks but since there were 300 students that we gave up distributing them and asked the teachers to do it.
After the ceremony we distributed the “Binchae nutrition meal” to the children as they were regularly.
There has always been a problem with drinking water but they were able to dig a well as they were rebuilding the school that there will be no problem now.

As a result of distributing the nutrition pack to the village and taking care of the school, the village people opened their hearts and proposed to provide a land to distribute the food and to run an after-school program. It was such as good news.
When we serve the people first, they will take a notice on us.
Isn’t it the gospel?
