Site Visit to Buddhanilkantha Secondary School

A few more pictures and notes from our site visit to Buddhanilkantha Public School earlier this month. Even though the bathroom has been in use for several months, and we have had our ribbon cutting ceremony, there are still some finishing touches to do. Construction in Kathmandu is always challenging! We sat down with the principal and vice principal and made a laundry list of items that need fixing.
