On 20th May 2009, Wednesday, Principal of Bhattedanda School visited MSH office and handed over the proposal of providing School equipments like blackboard, white boards, newsboards along with educational materials, sports equipments, stationaries for school children and musical instruement.
The biogas project lead by MSH member, Raju for installation at the Marybert School has been approved by Sabina Thapa the schools principal and MSH member. This will help the school minimize fuel costs making funds available for the children. The project will start when the funds are released.
Why is bio-gas so important for the school?
Marybert orphanage has 24 orphans living and studying at the moment. A significant amount of fuel (LGP gas or cooking gas) is used to prepare food everyday. Orphanage expenses are very high and therefore detrimental to educational funds. Once biogas is installed at the school, the gas produced can be stored and used as a fuel for cooking allowing more funds to be available purely for teaching all students. Nepals government encourages renewable energy projects and may also provide some of the materials which hopefully will lower investment costs as well as assisting MSH in managing the project.

MSH Nepal Members, Gopal and Raju made a visit to Chaturale village and the Brahmayami School in order to review help required.
The following was decided:
• Build 2 new toilet blocks (boys and for girls)
• Provide a water storage tank for drinking water
• Carry out small repairs to the building, for example painting of walls
• Provide sports equipment
This project will start in 25 days time
