The School House

In March 1998 the first lessons began with two teachers and 38 children in premises that were offered by the Shey-Phoksumdo Nationalpark for the purpose. But quickly the number of students grew and it became too cramped. Therefore an own schoolhouse was required. In 2001 a new building started to be constructed on land donated by parents. Ever since then it has been continuously extended to adjust to the growing number of students.
        The Tapriza School compound now consists of classrooms, bedrooms, staff rooms, a library and a large multipurpose building. Kitchen and sanitary facilities have running water. Solar tubes provide the showers with hot water and solar panels produce electricity for light and other electronic devices.
