Acronis Employees Set Off to Build a School in Nepal

Eighteen Acronis employees were embarking on a trek from November 2-9, 2019. Together, they begun the construction of a school in the village of Rajipur Chaumala (Bagdola), Kailali District in the far west Terai region of Nepal. Similar to construction experience in Senegal last year, these volunteers were digging, picking, sifting, mixing concrete and bricks, carrying water, and tying rebar to make a new school into a reality.




After an intense week, the Acronis team returned to their homes and the Rajipur Chaumala locals will continue the building process. The community is primarily agricultural, growing rice and wheat is the main source of livelihood there. Locals also go abroad to earn some money, mainly to India, as the village is only 20 km away from the border with it.

Thereafter, the community will be responsible for maintaining the school in a proper condition after construction works are completed in September 2020.
