    “10 years after the earthquake, Students at last can study under the roof of permanent class rooms”

    In 2005 earthquake, Gandhian high school was severely damaged as the building was quite old. The education department demolished the school as it was unfit for students to study in the building. Therefore students were using tents as class rooms. The situation resulted in decrease in the enrollment over the years. FRD with the support of UNHCR reconstructed school. The interventions encouraged teachers and students and developed their interest in the education and improved the overall enrollment.
