Celebrating the Opening of Promise Bilingual School, Nepal

There was much disbelief from the local community that Nepal Promise Bilingual School would be ready to commence on 23 April 2023. But, to their amazement, the school began operating on time, as scheduled, with 40 students.

It was a grand team effort from everyone, with the lower level of the school building ready for students and staff. Despite no windows or electricity, four classrooms, a meeting room, two offices and separate toilet blocks for girls and boys were functional for the big day. The presence of joy filled the air as we all rejoiced and thanked God. We thanked Him for His provision through so many people in Nepal and from Australia.

Transform the Nations (TtN) has been able to build Promise Bilingual School (PBS) because of the generous financial and practical support from schools and faithful supporters. Most students at PBS, are rescued Badi girls who are cared for in a special TtN hostel in Dhulikhel. Badi girls generally donā€™t receive any education; PBS will be a school to give them hope and a future beyond what is normal for most Badi girls, which is one of forced labour and sex-trafficking.

The school is also open to enrolments from the community, whether Buddhist, Hindu or Christian.

Catriona and Paul Wansborough are currently in Nepal assisting in the early days of the school. Catriona spends her time teaching, training and assisting the teachers and Principal. Paul is involved in building and planning for the future. The School, through Transform the Nations, is looking for financial support. $6,000AUD is needed for a playground area. If you can help, please contact Catriona or Transform the Nations, where all donations are tax deductible. Please specify that your contribution is for the playground at the Promise Bilingual School.

They are also looking for staff, either short or long term. Please contact Catriona if you are interested in serving overseas.

Please pray for this new Christian school to grow and flourish

The majority of the students at PBS, are rescued Badi girls who are cared for in a special TtN hostel in Dhulikhel. 

The older girls from the hostel were so keen to help get their school ready for the opening. They painted, cleaned, sang and helped put the tables and chairs together. 

The first day commenced with a formal assembly, followed by a tree planting ceremony and a special lunch for all staff, students and visitors. 

Here are the staff of PBS (who are Christians) in their saris.
