The " Shree Irang Richok Primary School " is located in Benighat , Dhading District , in the n . 5, in the direction of Richok , on top of a hill very remote and far away from the main road , the Prithivi Highway.
The school originally dates back about 40 years ago. Although there are many students , it has never undergone any restoration work , as the government , despite repeated requests , has never been made available and the locals living in conditions too poor to be able to provide directly .
Hanuman Onlus visited the school in 2008 and thought it absolutely proper to start this new project in the light of the precarious condition of the existing structure , with serious risks to young students.
The previous building was replaced by 7 new classrooms, equipped with all the necessary materials to both professors and students .
