Ambassador Carmona visits Nava Prativa School in Kavre district [fr]
On June 16, 2016, Ambassador Yves Carmona visited the reconstruction site of Nava Prativa School in Kavre district. This school had been destroyed by the earthquake in April 2015. The reconstruction is being carried out by the Fondation Architectes de l’Urgence (Emergency Architects Foundation) and supported by the French Foreign Ministry’s Crisis Centre (Euros 100,000.00). Ambassador Carmona was accompanied by Ms Sarah Hannou, coordinator of the project. On site, Ambassador was welcomed by the team of Emergency Architects, the school principal, and the students who showed him the operation and also informed him of the progress as well as the problems.
The shortage of building materials in 2015 led to an initial delay of several months, but the work is now progressing well and should be completed in autumn for five classrooms and at a later date for two administrative rooms.
