The newly reconstructed buildings of Jyoti Secondary School was handed over to the school management committee. The school situated in Harnamadi, Hetauda-18, Makwanpur was damaged during the 2015 Gorkha earthquake. Since then the school faced difficulties in managing classrooms and education for the students.

The school infrastructures were jointly inaugurated by Rajesh Baniya, Deputy Mayor, Hetauda Sub-metropolitan City and OKUBO Akimitsu, Chief Representative of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) Nepal.

The reconstruction of the school structures started in January 2021 under the Emergency Reconstruction Project (ESRP) supported by JICA.

The new buildings are reconstructed with multi-hazard resilient structures which are environment, child, gender and disable friendly to provide improved learning environment for the students based on the concept of Build Back Better (BBB) which increases resilience not only physically but also socially. The reconstructed buildings are designed to be a “complete school” which provides all the necessary facilities for the education to the students. In the new school blocks, there are classrooms with furniture, electrification, solar back up, playground, footpath pavement, and repair along with maintenance of existing buildings, which are also part of scope of works.
