MYAGDI, Oct 21: Locals of Shikha, Annapurna rural municipality-5, in Myagdi district have rebuild an earthquake-damaged school by mobilizing millions of rupees at the community level.
Two buildings with altogether 17 rooms have been reconstructed at a total cost of Rs 32.8 million, said Min Bahadur Buddhuja, president of the school management committee. He said the local community has invested more than the government bodies in a reconstruction of the school buildings.
The school buildings suffered damage due to the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake. Both buildings are disabled-friendly and earthquake-resistant. The school runs classes up to Grade 12 and has 191 students. RSS
