Opening of 1st Sewa International school at Chhinka, Uttarakhand
Chhinka Village is enroute to Hemkund from Chamoli. 158 families live in Chhinka and the total population is approximately 1300. Due to the devastating floods/landslides of 2013, the entire village including the Vidya Bharati’s school, Shishu Mandir was badly damaged and hence needed reconstruction. Sewa International with support from Sewa UK decided to establish one school building in Chhinka with all kind of modern facilities to provide for education.
Building school atop the Himalayan hill was an uphill task in Chhinka where part of the village is sliding & sinking down. Cost of each brick doubled because of the height. The perseverance of the Sewa Uttarakhand Team is worth appreciation. They toiled hard for building this structure which is now handed over to local Vidya Bharati unit. We also thank the villagers for their whole hearted cooperation.
Shri Harish Budhiya from Sewa UK, Shri Lalit Bihari Goswami, All India Gen. Secretary of Vidya Bharati, Assistant District Magistrate, District Education officer and many other dignitaries attended the inaugural on 5th Dec 2015.
This building is sponsored by Sewa International UK, thanking Sewa UK team also.
There are two more schools in remote places where schools were damaged due to floods in 2013, we herewith appeal to the benevolent who are interested in supporting education in Uttarakhand to come forward for the construction of the schools.
