In the last 2 years, the number of children in Duble at the Jana Jyoti school has dropped sharply to 35 children. The reason was the reconstruction of the school after the earthquake in 2015, which caused most children to go to the Champadevi school in the village of Mabir. This school is about an hour’s walk from Duble.
During our visit in 2017 we also stop on our way to Duble in Mabir, where we visit the Champadevi school.
Because a large majority of the children from Duble also use this school, we and the bearers distributed various school supplies and healthy care items to all 89 school children.
The faces of the happy children showed that they were very happy with the towel, toothbrush with pasta, comb or brush, nail brush, soap with wash ball and school supplies.
Several teachers from Duble had also switched to this school. The school looked well cared for and there was a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. There was no dictatorial atmosphere and they radiated that too.
