The first consignment of nine boxes weighing 252 kg arrived in Kathmandu on 19th August. All these books had been donated by the Primary department of Tanglin Trust School in Singapore. As a large space was not needed, a storage place was kindly provided by Raj Bhatta at Trekkers Home in Thamel. From there, Doreen personally delivered the boxes to the Ghorka region and Hetauda. Four boxes were officially handed over by Mahendra Paudyal, the then regional education deputy director, to the head-teacher of Adhunik Secondary school, Rishi Ram Pokhrel.
