Darchula District has constructed two school buildings. India gave financial help for the construction of the buildings.
On November 28, 2021, Ms Namgya C. Khampa, Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of India, Kathmandu; District Coordination Committee, Darchula; and School Management Committee and local representatives inaugurated the new Shree Moti Mahila Sangh Primary School at Tinkar, Khalanga, which was built with financial assistance of NRs 1.27 crore.
The school, which was founded in 1960, has long provided high-quality elementary education. The majority of students at this school come from Darchula District’s marginalized Tinkari and Bhutia populations.
There are currently 391 pupils registered in the institution, with 50 percent of them being female. According to a news statement from the Indian Embassy, new facilities would improve the learning environment in the rural region and contribute to the district’s educational development.
Later in the day, Khampa, Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of India, Kathmandu; Mahakali Municipality, Darchula; and School Management Committee and local representatives inaugurated the new building of Shree Malikarjun Model Secondary School at Mahakali-7, Dhap in Darchula District, which was built at a cost of NRs. 2.33 crore under India-Nepal Development Cooperation with Government of India’s financial assistance.
The school first opened its doors in 1966 and was upgraded to secondary status in 1984. Far Western Region is where the school is located. The prior infrastructure was insufficient to meet the needs of the school’s students.
The new school building, which is a two-story structure developed under the ‘India-Nepal Progress Cooperation,’ would improve the learning environment in the rural area and contribute to the district’s educational development.
These initiatives were undertaken by the District Coordination Committee of Darchula and Mahakali Municipality of Darchula, respectively, as a High Impact Community Development Project (HICDP) under an agreement between the governments of India and Nepal.
Since 2003, India has undertaken 523 HICDPs in Nepal, completing 459 of them, 32 of which are in Sudurpaschim and six in the Darchula District. In addition to the foregoing, the Indian Embassy has donated five ambulances and one school bus to Darchula District health posts and NGOs.
