News from Himanchal High School and Nangi Village, Nepal
Himanchal High School received $6,000 from Huguenin Rallapalli Foundation in San Francisco to support a health worker equivalent to Physician Assistant for Nangi Health Clinic. We hired Rabin Adhikari as Physician Assistant in February of this year. We have been unable to hire an MD yet. At present there are three staff at the clinic – Rabin Adhikari (paramedic), Saroj KC (Lab technician) and Lila Pun (Nurse).
The new school year started April 20. Students enrolled in a total of 108 (58 boys and 50 girls). This year 20 students in Grade 10 took the national level examination. The results will be available in 2 months. The school started advanced computer training classes for the Grade 10 students.
