Life remains very hard in this poor mountain village. Subsistence farming on steep hills, illiteracy (Tamang their spoken language has no written form), no books and no health care to name just a few of the difficulties the community face.
During the earthquake of 2015, and the months of aftershocks, all the village homes in Malagiri were so dangerously damaged they need demolishing and rebuilding. Most families still live in temporary sheds.

Two Wimbledon-themed events in the School of Education have raised £265 for the Malagiri School.
The Wimbledon sweepstake offered bottles of bubbly as prizes for those who had selected the finalists for the mens, womens or doubles final. The bubbly was supplied by the school’s management team which meant all the collected sweepstake money could go straight to Malagiri. Thank you!

On 14 February the Dinner at Pangdean event took place to raise funds for the school and 140 guests attended and enjoyed an evening of Nepalese food and entertainment.
An amazing £3,679 was raised!
Jill Munday who organised the event and is a member of the Malagiri School committee gave us this report on the evening:

“Pangdean Barn looked fabulous and the atmosphere was warm and supportive throughout the evening. We were treated to an excellent curry meal and brilliant music from Gumpf. Continue reading
