Happy New Year 2019

Dear members, friends and contributors of the Butterfly Help Project,

The comitees of BHP Switzerland and Nepal would like to wish you all the best for the upcoming year. Thank to your generosity, we are happy to let you know that our projects are going very well!

Up to now, the BHP finances the school fees for three sherpa-children.To improve the sherpa culture, BHP decided for the second year, to pay the salary of a professor specialised in sherpa traditions, in the school of Ghunsa.

Tashi Sherpa, brother of Norbu Sherpa, went with Fabienne Debossens, owner of the Cabane Susanfe (CH), in the school of Leptung. The were warmly welcomed by the children!

The project of the school of Palep is going fast and well. Thank to Dawa, member of the nepalese BHP comitee, who’s staying in Palep, we receive lots of informations about the evolution of the construction. We’re also proud to attest that all the steps of this project are approved by the Nepalese authorities (to ensure earthquake resistance standards) and controlled by two engineers, every three weeks.

In november, Andrea Zimmermann-Sherpa and Norbu Sherpa visited the village of Palep, meet some families living there and visited the site of the school.

We’ll let go 2018 with these beautiful pictures and are happy to jump in 2019, full of motivation, energy and happiness. See you soon to discover the projects of BHP!



The new school of Palep: project is starting now!

Palep old temporary school is currently being demolished. An extension of the plot to build the new concrete school has been validated by the government after having undergone numerous administrative formalities. We consider it essential to coordinate with the Nepalese government and the district administration in order to complete this project. Even though it is a time-consuming task, we would like to maintain total control of the project and ensure that the responsibilities about the management of the school are clear to all parties.
