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 don’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.
