Why has Cunina started this project?

Not only knowledge, but also creativity plays an important role in the development of a child. This is why Cunina started a new adventure in Sekha with the financial support of the Love Tomorrow Foundation, a project of the famous Tomorrowland Festival. We are building a genuine Music & Arts School on the roof of the world.

It will be the very first music school in Nepal and it will have a unique design to stimulate the creativity of the students. Cunina makes sure that durable materials are used in the construction of the school. It will be finished at the end of 2017 and will consist of four classrooms and an auditorium.

What has Cunina done in the past?

In 2016, the first plans were drawn up and a soil investigation and geotechnical analysis took place. The first ‘symbolic’ stone was laid in June 2016.

What will Cunina do in the future?

The construction will start in February 2017. In April, Sophie will visit Nepal to supervise the construction works and take care of other matters. You can find more information on: www.tomorrowland.com

We work together with the local community and use local materials to support the local economy and create jobs.

I would like to ask a question about Nepal

Why does Cunina operate in Nepal?

30% of the Nepalese population does not know how to read or write, even though primary education is free and compulsory for children aged six to eleven. Only half of the children in Nepal go to school.

The quality of public schools is bad and private schools are too expensive for many families. This is one of the reasons why children that do go to school often drop out early.

Cunina projects in Nepal

Cunina has been operating in Nepal since 1997 and particularly focuses on the development of the region situated on the mountainsides of the Makalu. We have already built two boarding schools, which we completely manage ourselves. Here you can read more about the other projects that we have realized in Nepal.
