A School Bus for Kalhang Village
Category : Uncategorized
During a visit to Kalhang Village in Ukhrul District of Manipur in Feb 2013, Luis, Miranda, one of Sunbird’s earliest members, was informed that the only school in the village had closed. As the nearest functional school, the Holy Spirit School at Longpi was an hour long trek away in this mountainous area, the children could no longer attend school. Determined to solve the problem, Luis and his wife Fiona sponsored a good second hand vehicle to be used as a school bus for the Holy Spirit school. Now, 40 children of Kalhang and neighbouring villages benefit from this generous gesture and attend school regularly.
