BAGLUNG, Aug 6: An elderly woman has donated Rs 213,000 to Khadangdevi Secondary School at Dagatumdada VDC in the district. Narmaya Thapa, 75, from Dagatumdada VDC-5 made the contribution for upgrading the school to higher secondary level.
This is the highest amount the school has received in donation from the VDC.
"There were no schools in our time, so I could not go to school. I don´t want my grandchildren to face the same problems," said Thapa explaining why she gave donation to the school. She had sold a piece of land to arrange the money.
"We collected around Rs 500,000 through donations and have upgraded the school to higher secondary level," the school´s principal, Bhed Prasad Pokharel, said.
