Community Project In Junbesi With A Group Of Australians
Posted in 4th Aug, 2019
In March 2016 a group of five Australians lead by Crish Chapman had taken part in a community project in Junbesi assisting with the school reconstruction. During the earthquake, last April (2015), three of the school buildings collapsed, forcing the schools to relocate to temporary located near KPHMN health clinic. Their job was to clear the site of one of the collapsed building so that local engineers could assess the remaining foundations prior to reconstruction. They had shifted many tons of rock and rubble to the school playground, resulting in the creation of a mound of rock which they named as Mt. Junbesi. They also have worked with school children and teachers and also had experience of the Holi Festival.
During off days they had trek to Thuptenchholing Monastry and Phurteng. They stayed at Choti’s lodge where they had party with school teacher and experienced disco Junbesi style.
