The Marshyangdi School is a K-10 boarding school located in the Nayabazaar district of Kathmandu. In 1993, Sonam Lama built the Marshyangdi School to provide a safe place for the children of Nepal to receive a quality education.
The school currently provides education, room, board, and health care to students from all over the country. Some attend as day students from Kathmandu, but most students are boarders, coming from remote villages in the Himalayas, including the Langtang where villages were buried from avalanches triggered by the 2015 earthquakes.
Since it’s inception, Marshyangdi School has provided quality education and a loving community, striving to serve the poorest of the poor students by finding them foreign sponsors to fund their education.
Not only do Marshyangdi students receive a high quality education, but they do so in a loving environment that provides health care, food, housing, and a sense of family. Many of the students come from villages and lives that were not able to meet those basic needs.
A new school building is being built in Raniban that will be able to house twice as many students, expand to be K-12, offer a more open green setting, as well as be structurally resistant to earthquakes.
The motto of the Marshyangdi School is “Others Before Self”.
