The Malagiri School

School and community winter update

The children looking at a globeLife 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.

Food is cooked over an open fire and the families sit around it on the stamped earth floor, chatting and singing. There are still no homes with functioning stoves that take the smoke out of the building.

This winter has been especially cold in Malagiri, and the smoky indoor environment is very damaging and unhealthy for the children. Malagiri families struggle to cope with so many hardships.

The School is a lifeline of hope for them and an opportunity for a better life for the children.
