- Dungdunge, Nepal
Dungdunge is small village of around 36 households and 14 nearby making up a total of 50 households, surrounded by jungle and river in the East Nepal mountain region.
The village is cut off from electricity, markets, motor able roads, with no health post or schools and where the locals can hardly make their living with limited corn food for 365 days. Most are poor and can't afford to send their children to town for school education.
The older children go to a nearby school where they have to cross a river and walk two hours to the nearest government school. The student's life is put in peril everyday crossing the river. Their books and clothes are wet and when they return home after spending almost a day in school without snacks, they are tired, hungry and exhausted. You can imagine the difficulty for a little boy or girl of 6 years going to school every day. We want to build a school in their own village so that they don't have to suffer like this or die crossing the river.
