As part of endeavor to support Nepal's education, two non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from China on July 30 distributed school bags, stationery items and sports accessories to the students of a public school of the country.
The donation program, attended by Wang Yajun, advisor of China NGO Network for International Exchanges (CNIE), Nepali former Minister Pampha Bhusal and other officials, came after the signing ceremony of promoting development and cooperation between social organizations from the two countries on July 29 in Kathmandu.
The donation was made by China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA) and Beijing Ciai Charity Foundation to Mahendra Adarsha Vidyashram school. The two NGOs were among the 11 organizations that signed agreements or MOUs with their Nepali counterparts on July 29.
Addressing the function, Pampha Bhusal, also Chairman of the school committee, spoke highly of the Chinese assistance that has enabled hundreds of Nepali students to get quality education.
"The Chinese support is very instrumental for the bright future of our students. It will not just boost the quality education of the country, but also strengthen the people-to-people ties between the two countries," Bhusal said.
Established in 1958, Mahendra Adarsha Vidyashram in Lalitpur district is the oldest school in the area that has been providing education to around 600 students up to higher secondary level.
CFPA is constructing a two-storey building within the school compound after its buildings were severely damaged by the strong earthquake of 2015.
