“Help our Children See” – Sherpa Tenzing Norgay response to Sr Edmund Hillary when asked how we can help you.
Following the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal 270 of the 350 schools supported by the Australian Himalayan Foundation were destroyed.
TTW and HASSELL combined their creative efforts to develop a light weigh earth quake resistant pre-fabricated system that could be carried on foot into steep and remote areas of the Solu Khumbu region, located at the foot hills of Mount Everest, which are inaccessible by vehicle.
The modular system is designed to deliver the three typical standard government classrooms.
