E4E in Nepal 2016

The Executives for the Extraordinary (E4E) started planning a project in early 2015 to strengthen the structure of a school building at Shrek Rudrayanee Secondary School in a village near Kathmandu, unfortunately a severe earthquake hit Nepal in April 2015 and the project had to be postponed to 2016. However, the particular school building was damaged beyond repair, therefore E4E donated funds to demolish the damaged building and build a new block with two large classrooms. This is E4E's 14th annual project. The leader for this project was me, Simon Tam.

How can anyone come to Nepal without some sight-seeing!
