Durbar School the oldest public school in Nepal

Durbar School is the oldest public school in Nepal and while it was once the school that the elite ruling-class sent their children to, it is now in disrepair and is where many of the children who work as domestic servants attend school. In past years we have provided a clean drinking water system, remodeled and repaired the girl’s bathroom, purchased supplies for the science lab, bought computer equipment for the computer classes. TRIFC is also funding the salary for a computer teacher to continue the computer classes at the school. There is no government funding for this teacher. We also coordinated a pen-friend program at the school, linking the Nepali children to kids at Meadowdale High School in Edmonds and Forest Ridge High School in Bellevue.
