COMPUTER LAB - MAHENDRA SCHOOL

In 2011, after commissioning Sunrise School and changed it into NVA and then into Mahendra School, oHoH started renovating the complete school. We started with the toilets followed by the classrooms. After finishing the classrooms we started building a new computer lab including an environmental friendly power system with a big solar panel.

 

The old building which we were going to use was nothing more than 4 broken walls. There was a lot to do. We needed to strengthen all the existing walls and make a complete new roof since there was no roof. Furthermore we needed to have some kind of power system to keep the computers going. Since there is no power in Nepal for 10 to 18 hours a day it was necessary to create some kind of backup system for those hours without power. We ended up buying a big solar panel combined with two huge "solar batteries" to store the electricity provided by the solar panel. However, before we could install all this we had to renovate the building itself first.

 

The new computer lab used to be a small administration office which had become a nesting place for the neighbour's chickens and goats. Before starting any renovations, we had to ensure the animals couldn’t access the school grounds any more. This was achieved by installing a gate, closing off the entrance to the school. This little project took us about 4 weeks: 3 weeks for making the gate and another week for building the remaining brick wall next to the gate.


Having effectively prevented any animals from entering the school grounds, we could finally start building our computer lab. After a short 6 weeks the building was almost completed. It was time to install the solar panel. Luckily, this only took a few hours. And there it was: after two months rebuilding the new computer lab was a fact. And for the first time since the opening of the school, nearly 12 years earlier, the students from class 3 up to class 6 received their first practical computer lessons. Until then they had only received computer lessons from a book. Now they would really know how a computer looks like, feels like and most important: how it works.
