Sunadevi primary school located in Deura village of Ladagada VDC, Doti was built with the initiation of Mr. Uddyasingh Kunjeda and participation of local community. For a primary school having five grades, there were only two rooms for conducting classes. The school building was dilapidated. The roof leaked during rainy season and it was a huge problem for conducting classes. It frequently hindered teaching and learning. With the onset of monsoon, the classrooms would fill-up with water. So, students avoided school.
Faced with such a situation, the local community started searching for helping hands, to renovate the building. They started communicating with different organizations, but they were unable to receive any kind of support.
The community came to know about GNI and the support it was providing to different activities in Ladagada VDC. They contacted GNI staff member and shared their problem. GNI staff visited the area, held meeting with the community, and assessed the situation. They decided to provide support, estimated the cost for renovation and designed a concept for other kind of supports. Now, after the support, 350 students are able to continue their study up to grade 12 without any disturbances. The teaching-learning environment become more conducive at the school. All students including community are very happy and extend their gratitude to the organization for providing much needed support.
The community is also making efforts to improve the quality of education at the school. Mr. Keshav Raj Pathak (Former Principal of the school) donated three ropanis of land to the school. The community is now enthusiastic about enhancing the quality of education and improving local employment status. Towards this end, the community has requested GNI for regular support.
