DescriptionISDRI Nepal distributed educational materials to 70 students of Sitadevi Kali Lower Secondary School based in Chaughare VDC-5, Lalitpur district. The relief materials were distributed to the students on the first anniversary of the devastating earthquake of April 25, 2015. The school family has been moved to safer place after cracks appeared in two newly constructed buildings of the school, while the classes are being run by erecting temporary teaching center. Despite being a remote VDC, Chaughare has not been able attract the government’s attention for the district is counted as a mainstream district. The village in ward-5 of Chaughare VDC lies 29 km away from the district headquarters of Lalitpur. The quake-affected families of this place didn’t catch anyone’s notice even during the earthquake. It is a sad fact that a majority of the students of this place belong to the marganilised indigenous group of Tamang. The students of this place were unable to go to school due to lack of basic educational material. Each of the students were given a school bag, copies, pens, pencils, erasers, and drawing board, including a set of text books.
