First brick laid for second school building
A ceremony was held on 23 March to mark the first brick laid for the second school building. The ceremony was led by a Hindu priest in the presence of many enthusiastic children. The new building was blessed in order to bring the pupils great happiness. On behalf of Stichting Balsewa, Robert van Mourik, dressed in ceremonial clothes, laid the first brick.
The second school building is needed to teach the children a trade that will enable them to live independently and have a better life in Nepal. An artist’s impression of the school building is shown below.
