In September 2013, inhabitants of the small village of Sangachok in the Sindhupalchok district of Nepal asked the charity organisation Nepalhilfe Beilngries to finance a new school. The existing school, which was built on a hillside, had fallen into a state of dilapidation.
Ralf Dujmovits and Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, committed supporters of Nepalhilfe Beilngries for many years, used their contacts to LOWA and convinced the company to donate 75,000 euros.
The newly built Shree Namuna Janasewa Lower Secondary School, also referred to as LOWA School for the sake of simplicity, opened its doors on 6 November 2015. And in January 2019, the LOWA school added a playground for the benefit of the community’s younger children. There is also a new computer room, which is used by the 460 boys and girls who attend the school daily.
Furthermore, for years LOWA has been donating shoes to the project in cooperation with numerous sportspeople.
