The majority of the Nepali population is comprised of people living in villages. These citizens are often illiterate and suffer from minimal access to health care and appropriate living facilities, including educational facilities and clean drinking water. The Lions Club of Pokhara Annapurna conducted the Zumleti Village Project to improve the living conditions in the local village of Zumleti.  This project saw the initiation of a free health clinic, clean drinking water, a tree plantation, an adult education program and the construction of a permanent bridge between Pokhara and the village. With the generous assistance of the Yamaji Culture Foundation, we were also able to construct the new Shanti High School. The Yamaji Culture Foundation donated the 489, 490 rupees necessary for this construction. Due to this new school, village students no longer have to walk for hours to access education.
