The devastating floods that have crushed the riverside village of Melamchi has also impacted life in Batase Village. Melamchi is an important service centre for Batase and other surrounding villages. Right now Batase is without electricity because of the flooding in Melamchi, but life goes on and the resilience of the Nepalese people kicks in. This includes our hostel students, who will always manage to not let anything get in the way of their studies. They understand the importance of education to their future and will do anything to ensure they can continue their studies. The photo shows hostel students studying by solar-powered lights.
Helping Melamchi is also helping Batase. We are raising special funds for Melamchi via a ‘My Cause’ funding page. Please help. Donate here.
