About the Project

Conscious Impact is excited to be preparing for the reconstruction of the Takure Primary School after the 2016 monsoon season. We are currently producing thousands of bricks to use in building six classrooms, a computer lab/library, and new toilets. PLAN International recently re-located an existing structure on site to accommodate the need for a teacher’s office before monsoon, and our design will incorporate this new structure into the site layout. The new site will feature an expansive courtyard between the buildings, providing a new play space for the children, and a convenient gathering space for school and community events. Our design hopes to incorporate some permaculture design aspects, including rainwater harvesting for a garden on site.

Due to the fact that the structures will be brand new instead of a reconstruction project, our scope of work is much more involved than the Bimire project, including building roofing and completely leveling the project site, and will servce as an excellent example of CSEB construction to the community. As with the Bimire school, rebar reinforcement will provide additional support in creating an earthquake-resistant structure. The school site is in a beautiful location overlooking the valley and snow-covered mountains beyond. We are excited to build a new school out of local, sustainable materials in this amazing setting which may act as a demonstration on the alternative path of rebuilding Nepal.

Where Your Donation Goes

donation breakdown


Where Your Donation Goes

40% Labor

A large percentage of our funds go towards the employment of local community members. This enables us to support and engage them in rebuilding with alternative, sustainable materials. We  employ approximately 10 locals to produce the Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEBs) at The Takure Training and Production Center. The school construction itself will employ approximately 5 masons and 3 laborers. 

30% Materials 

All of our soil is sourced locally but we pay for truckloads of sand and cement each week for our brick production and earth mortar. We would be unable to build an earthquake-resistant school without the reinforcement of rebar, steel, and tin roofing. Material costs will also cover new door and window frames, benches for the children, and whiteboards.

15% Transportation

We will be moving thousands of bricks from the Training Center to The Takure Primary School this fall. That plus the transportation costs for truckloads of sand, cement, rebar, and steel add up and account for about 15% of our construction costs.

10% Building Permits 

The Nepali government requires us to obtain permits to ensure the building of a safe school.

5% Miscellaneous 

Any unforeseen costs in the rebuilding of Takure Primary School.
