The team aforementioned lived for three days within the community of the school, while helping them to rebuilt part of the classroom, teaching English at the students and playing with the children.
At their arrival the team received a welcoming and the teacher held a brief speech. After the ceremony the team decided on the tasks to work on in the school: fix windows, painting, making murals and fix the height of the wall. Afterwards, the team was taken to a nearest handcraft shop, 25 minutes by the school, to purchase some materials and tools.
Later, the team joined cooking class with locals to prepare momo (Nepali dumplings) and visiting a local Market.
As a farewell the teacher gave a speech to thank the team for their work and some flower with red tika on their forehead were given. The experience was great not just for the team but also for the community itself, as the students now can enjoy a better environment at the school.
