Classes 7 and 8 Move into Phuleli School

Post by Emily Stanley

This week classes 7 and 8 moved into the newly completed Phuleli Secondary School. The school is the FIRST earthbag facility in the entire Everest Region of Nepal.

An enormous thank you to all of those who contributed to the school building campaign, the volunteers who helped to construct the school, Architecture for Humanity Boston (who helped to design the school), Edge of Seven’s board chair and architect (Sarah Andrews and Travis Hughbanks), The Small World (our Nepali project partner) and Phuleli’s local community. Our team will return to the project site this month to put on a few final touches and take some more photographs! See below for the first installment:
