'Ralf Zacherl' School - Equipping a school for underprivileged children

Until 2007 there was no primary school in the village of Taonsgho. About 850 children (between 5 and 15 years of age) lived in Taonsgho, but only about 200 were attending school. These children had to walk many kilometres to reach the overcrowded school in one of the neighbouring villages. Now it is possible for the children of Taonsgho to go to their own school in their own village.
