As blogged previously, The Himalayan Games in Sindhupalchowk saw the participation of 430 students from 27 community schools between February 24-27. The event by Helambu Education and Livelihood Partnership (HELP) is an intersholastic tournament aimed to enable the partner schools to create a vibrant learning environment through the inclusion of regular extra-curricular activities. The participants competed in eighteen activities ranging from football, table-tennis, badminton to relay runs.

Sounds like the children had such an amazing time! Of course, the handover of the new school block is also another cause for celebration. I had made a very small contribution towards the games and I receive this ‘Thank You’ note which is ever so thoughtful of ‘HELP’ to send over. Appreciated.
