From Stoneybroke Christian School to ShivaNagar: The Container School Arrives!
Updated: Jul 25, 2019
After over two years of fundraising, preparing, praying, and waiting, we are thrilled to report that the container school sponsored by Stoneybroke Christian School and Cargo of Dreams has reached ShivaNagar!
This was no small task. A team of 10 people went to Nepal in April 2013 to install the containers in their final location. This involved putting up the roof and cutting holes for the doors and windows. Inside the container there were two playgrounds provided by Kids Around the World. One playground was installed nearby and the other one went on to a village near Kathmandu. Many of the team members from Kids Around the World assisted with the container installation at ShivaNagar.
The whole community waited for hours in the hot sun to watch the containers arrive, and they assisted with loading them off the truck with "Egyptian pyramid building techniques" (to quote one team member). This new container school will add additional capacity to the already existing Joyti School which has about 100 students. ShivaNagar is an extremely poor community of former slaves in Far West Nepal and were very grateful for the container school.
