Painting 5 schools!

If you follow us on facebook, you will know that over the past 5 weeks we have been spending most of our time painting the schools that PoD Nepal works with using some of our PoD Charity money.

Many people have asked me what difference does it make if their classroom is painted? Surely there is somewhere more important you could spend the money? But in answer to that, let me show you what some of the schools looked like before we got in there....




They were dirty, dingy,  and grimy. Not particularly nice places to spend your time and definitely not a great learning environment. By adding a lick of paint, we have totally renewed these classrooms and made them a pleasant, light and pretty place for the kids to be. 

 
Most of these schools have little to no resources, so these paintings also work as great teaching tools. It was great to overhear a teacher the other day using our alphabet we had painted on the wall and using the animals as examples.

We have had alot of help along the way from PoD volunteers, locals, GRG's Adventure Kayaking and many of the teachers from each school and for that I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you, as I do not think we would have completed it on our own. (On one day we had 11 classrooms to paint with just 3 volunteers, but kindly a group of 20 gave up their day to help paint!)



The schools we painted were Sun Rise, Shree Krishna, Balam Primary, Birendra and Annapurna. Unfortunatley we did not have time to paint Dipya Jyoti but have left them our designs and left over paint so that they can do themselves.






If you would like to contribute to our efforts to improve the conditions at these schools you can make a donation here to the PoD Charity
