India supports construction of hostel building for school

Kathmandu, May 17

Indian Ambassador Ranjit Rae and Pradip Nepal, chairman of Madan Ashrit Foundation, jointly inaugurated the newly constructed hostel building of Madan Ashrit Memorial Technical School in Kathmandu yesterday.

The three-storied hostel building was constructed with financial support worth Rs 45.66 million from India.

The hostel building consists of 24 rooms, a large meeting hall and restrooms for boys and girl students on each floor. Essential furniture and fixtures have also been provided for accommodation of students in the hostel.

The Madan Ashrit Memorial Foundation is named after two prominent leaders Madan Bhandari and Jeev Raj Ashrit, who were killed in an unfortunate road accident 23 years ago in Chitwan.

The foundation is a non-profit social organisation working for the uplift of backward sections of the society.

The Madan Ashrit Memorial Technical School, established in 2009, conducts vocational courses for civil sub overseers as well as other community oriented short-term vocational training.

According to a press statement issued by the Embassy of India, the school lacked hostel facilities till now and the hostel building would facilitate students from outside the Kathmandu Valley.
