Sunukuda Higher Secondary Schoool
Sunukuda Higher Secondary School is located in Sunukuda VDC of Bajhang district in far western region if Nepal. Sunukuda School was established in 2017 B.S. (1960 A.D.) with grades ranging from 1 through 5. By the year 2059 B.S. (2002 A.D.), school was able to increase the class level from Grade 5 to 12 establishing itself as a high school. 5 years thereafter, in 2064 B.S. (2007 A.D.), Sunukuda opened up its door to provide higher education (undergraduate degree) to the local youths establishing itself as a source to enlighten students not only from Sunukunda, Bajhang but also nearby 20 Village Development Committee (VDC)s college students. The school has 500 students from dalit, janjati and disadvantaged families including 142 female students.
Bajhang is one of the most remote and underdeveloped district in Far Western region of Nepal. Despite of the limited resources and numerous challenges, local community understand the importance of education and are very supportive to the school. It is inspiring to see solar system generating 3KW electricity for school use installed by public private contributions in the area where electricity power grid yet to be reached.
School has a building with 5 classrooms which are being shared between elementary school in the afternoon and undergraduate classes in the morning. The school is in tremendous pressure to build second floor to accommodate the growing need. However, financial situation of the school is insufficient to go for construction.
EAI decided and signed mou with school management committee to provide financial assistance to complete second floor of the building that will provide opportunity for more students to get enrolled in school in this one of the most remote part of Nepal.
Project is anticipated to be completed by December 2016.
