Just off the regular Everest trekking path and scarcely visited by trekkers, Juving villages rarely receives outside support. HOP’s recent project, in partnership with Rays of Joy, provided ten laptops and four duffel bags of warm clothing, as well as installing two solar panels, a Yeti 1250 battery and nine lighting fixtures at the school. During this project, HOP discovered that we were barely scratching the surface of Juving’s needs.

Juving School stood out as a place where further outreach would have a huge impact. Although the laptops made a big difference, the school was lacking such basic amenities as chairs, desks, and well-trained teachers. HOP worked with the school’s headmaster to develop a plan to build desks and chairs for each of the school’s 350 children, as well as paying the salaries of four trained teachers for a year, and installing a much-needed PA system. We also installed an industrial water filter in the school, giving students and village residents access to clean drinking water year-round.
