After a short closure in June, 2020, due to a case of COVID documented in another part of Dolpo, Nepali government authorities allowed Tsharka School to reopen. The school functioned well for the rest of the school year. Due to COVID, no outsiders were allowed to enter the region.
Materials that had been purchased for the passive solar classroom were unfortunately delayed during their journey to Tsharka. Landslides that closed a section of road near Pokhara were responsible. We hope building may start next year.
Villagers banded together to finish a long-anticipated project: encompassing the school campus with a stone wall. The stones are free — at the cost of back-breaking labor. The technique for constructing the wall was an ancient one, but highly effective.
The school campus and sports areas are now well-defined. The new classrooms and new wall highlight the progess and development that characterize Tsharka Elementary School.
