ghiling school boarding house
Where: Ghiling Village, Musang Region, Nepal
When: Construction was completed in 2012
What: Upside's first mountain venture and first completed project, Milestone in Mustang, involved the construction of a new boarding house for the kids of Ghiling; a remote village within the Mustang region of Nepal.
Completed with the help of our local partner, Mairti Ratna, the building allows children from surrounding villages access to the best school in the region as well as a clean, warm place to live with all the nourishing food they can eat.
In a matter of years, the running costs of this boarding house (and the rest of the school and kindergarten) will be funded by Upside's Action Apples project located within the same village.
- Provide a safe and warm place for students to live whilst studying at Ghiling School.
- Become self sustainable over the course of the years with funds from the Action Apple project.
- Help prevent forced migration of the village people to urban areas where poverty may await them.
