Upon arrival at the school, teachers warmly welcomed each member of pax team with a khadda. After some interaction with students and teachers, the pax team distributed educational materials such as notebooks, pencils, erasers, sharpeners and crayons as well as hygienic materials such as toothbrushes, toothpastes, soaps and hanky to the students. Thanks to the courtesy of PEJ President Soko Aoki, the team could also distribute soaps brought from Japan. The school is more like a childcare as it is running nursery to class one. The pax team also distributed a token of souvenir to three teachers and a staff.
