The Foundation's sole supported school in Nepal, Shree Panuati Basic School situated in Khopasi, Panauti Municipality. The school is about 102 years old, and one of the oldest in the region
The Gate 1 Foundation is proud to have recently started to build a brand new primary school in the town of Paunati, Nepal. The original school was one of the oldest educational buildings in the area, which suffered significant damage as a result of the 2015 earthquake. The new Shree Panauti Basic School will provide a safe and suitable learning environment for the over 250 students in attendance. The structure is being built in a nearby location and will utilize Earthquake Resistant Design.
In addition to major building and infrastructure projects funded by the Foundation, Gate 1 invites tour passengers, who visit our schools as part of their itineraries, to bring small items that are needed but in short supply, to give to the school's students. In this way, Gate 1 Foundation is able to supplement its large-scale contributions with essential educational supplies, which students' families are often unable to afford, thereby multiplying our positive impact on communities.
