Rupandehi FA builds school building in Gorkha
Gorkha, July 30: The Dharmodaya Secondary School in Mirkot VDC-5 of Gorkha, that was damaged in the April 25 earthquake, has got a new quake-resistant building.
The eight-room building was constructed by the Rupandehi district football association at the cost of Rs. 1.3 million. The profit of Tilottma Gold Cup of Rs. 900,000 was further increased to make it Rs. 1.3 million with donation from friends in the executive committee, said the association Chair Dirgha Bahadur KC.
