The Nurbuling School, established in 1991, serves as the only source of education for pre-school to eighth grade in the Kharka village in Nepal’s Himalayan valleys.
The Nurbuling School serves as the only source of formal education for the Hyolmos community of Kharka Dandha, Nepal. The Hyolmos, an indigenous ethnic minority group, has been recorded to occupy the Nepali Himalayan region north of Katmandu over eight centuries ago. Kharka Dandha located in the distant foothills of the Himalayan regions. This involves a six hour bus ride from Kathmandu and another three hour hike from the nearest accessible road.
The peripheral village of Kharka Dandha resided a limited number of remaining indigenous Hyolmo communities which usually fails to meet the bare essential living standard of running water or electricity.
The school benefits over 100 students within the village population of 750 where half of the village population is under the age of 18.
