As Per SEI-Nepal Facebook :

As a part of our "Post Earthquake Reconstruction/Renovation of Schools 2015-16", we have signed a MoU with Hilepani Sanskrit Secondary School, Lamidanda VDC, Dolakha district on March 22, 2017 to reconstruct/renovate construction of four rooms and a toilet. The project is financially supported by Nepali American Friendship Association (NAFA), USA and is expected to be completed by 15 September, 2017.
This is the twentieth of 22 schools that is receiving our support in its effort to get back on its feet from the effect of earthquake.
The school's details are as follows:
Hilepani Sanskrit Secondary School, established in 1988, is located in Lamidanda VDC – 4 in Dolakha district. It is around 168 km away from central Kathmandu. It runs classes from nursery to grade 12. Today, it has altogether 256 students with 16 academic staffs.
Prior to the earthquake, the school had a total of 16 classrooms, out of which 20 rooms were damaged totally by the earthquake. As the school needed at least 12 rooms to conduct its regular operations, it requested us to make at least four rooms operational. Currently the school is running its classes in Temporary Learning Centers.
We are supporting the school to add four rooms and a toilet to help the school conduct classes there and maintain the necessary sanitary environment.
