Nepal is thanking the Isle of Man after the 25th school project to be funded by the Island was completed.

The Island's Overseas Aid Committee has assisted the Pahar Trust, which has also benefited from donations from Manx residents

The project is due to open 3 more Manx funded schools this year.

The trust raises funds to make sure there are schools in remote areas of Nepal, having opened 60 schools since it was founded in 1993.
