Chaughada Progressive English School
The Boss Group is proud to sponsoring Lyn and Ben Covelli and the wonderful work they do for the Chaughada Progressive English School - Steiner School. As you may be aware, Nepal was hit by devastating Earthquakes in April and May 2015. Thousands of people were killed or injuries. It is estimated that more than 600,000 houses were destroyed, leaving hundreds of thousands of people living in temporary shelter, where many still are.
The village of Chaughada in the Nuwakot District was one of the hardest hit communities in Nepal. Upon seeing the devastation, Lyn and Ben Covelli decided to assist by establishing the Chaughada Progressive English School, a private, free and non-for-profit primary school. Lyn and Ben, along with their generous donors, have funded the building of the school, and ongoing expenses, ensuring school uniforms, books and stationery are free for all of the children. In 2021, the Boss Group funded the construction of three additional classrooms. We are looking forward to seeing students start their education journey in these new classrooms!
