Dhading, November 2, 2017: Global Peace Foundation Nepal on October 31, Tuesday, handed over a library and women education center to Bhairabee Secondary School, Nilkantha municipality -6, Dhading.
The organization had taken an initiative three months ago to build these education infrastructures at Neelakantha-6 in Dhading inside the premises of the local community school in order to address the undeniable need to improve quality of education in the area.
The library has a capacity to accommodate 350 students of Bhairabee Secondary School and will be accessible to 4 other neighboring schools: Raghu Adharbhut School, Saraswati Adharbhut School, Nawalpur Adharbhut School and Newarpani Adharbhut School.

“We expect the women education center to bring sisters and mothers closer to form a beautiful bond of womenhood and work in community with a sense of unity and harmony. If the center guarantees that, I am pretty sure, it will provide women with the motivation and energy that they are seeking for,” said Ram Maya Rana Magar, a resident of Neelakantha-6.
The school teachers and students along with the local leaders welcomed the two organizations with flowers, garlands and beautiful welcome songs. “I am really glad to the Korean and Nepali team for such extraordinary initiative.

I hope everyone will take the ownership and be responsible towards it,” said the Executive Member of Municipality, Bishnu Nepali.
