Working with our fellow rotarians in Pokhara, Nepal we have chosen the village of Talmari to support and repair. Talmari is in the district of Rupacot, west of the epicentre of the earthquake and 25 kilometres from the town of Pokhara.
The local Prithvi Rupa School was badly damaged in the earthquake. The school's foundations have been destroyed and six classrooms cannot be used safely. The school is also directly below a landslide slope. At the moment two or even three classes are crammed into a single classroom and the Head Teacher is desperate for help.
We would like to build a new school on a new much safer site. We estimate we will require £32,000 to complete the project which means we now need to raise an addtional £20,000.

The majority of people have dreams and ambitions - a 'bucket' list. Many people achive these ambitions but some do not either because their life is limited by physical or mental difficulties or they may have a short life expectancy.
The Rotary Club of Dronfield is looking towards providing assistance to someone in our community to help in achieving their ambition.
