Four years ago, Bhanodaya Basic School, in the south of Kathmandu, had 15 regular students and was on the verge of closure. Today it is a thriving school with nearly 200 students from Nursery to Class 7.

Average student attendance is over 93% public school to the south of Kathmandu. Students want to come to school everyday and so do the teachers. When asked to say what they love about working at Bhanodaya, “I love our team’s energy” is the most common answer among our dedicated team of 16. Together, we work  to ensure that every child, regardless of their socio-economic background, gets the best start in life.

Jyoti Gautam and Kamal Khatri are working as School Leaders in this school.
