DHADING: A school established in this district with the objective of
imparting education to Dalit children is in dire straits, thanks to a
perennial shortage of funds and teachers.

Founded five years ago with initiatives of local people, the Sunaula
Bazaar-based Chakradevi Primary School has 90 students at present, but
lacks a proper building to conduct regular classes.

"We are running classes up to grade III with permission from the
District Education Office. The school lacks teachers and basic
infrastructure," says Nara Bahadur Bhandari, chairman, School
Management Committee.

At present, classes are being conducted in the Chakradevi Community
Organisation building, says Bhandari. It's not that the local people
have not approached different sections of the society for help. "Our
repeated requests to non-government organisations for assistance has
fallen on deaf ears," laments management committee chairman
