In September 2013, inhabitants of the small village Sangachok in the Sindhupalchok district of Nepal asked the charity organisation Nepalhilfe Beilngries to finance a new school. The existing school, which was built on a hillside, had fallen into a state of dilapidation.
Ralf Dujmovits and Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, committed supporters of Nepalhilfe Beilngries for many years, used their good contacts to LOWA and convinced the company to donate 75,000 Euros.
In the summer of 2014, the old school was torn down and construction of the new building began. The newly built Shree Namuna Janasewa Lower Secondary School, also referred to as LOWA School for the sake of simplicity, opened its doors on 6 November 2015.
Since then, nearly 200 boys and girls are taught in the two-storey building’s twelve rooms.
Furthermore, for years LOWA has been donating shoes to the project in cooperation with numerous athletes.
