This will be the first educational project supported by the Government of India in the district.

According to a press release issued by Indian Embassy, the Construction project of  school building and  separate hostel blocks  for boys and girls  for  Shree Jana Prakash Higher  Secondary School  is to be executed  by DDC  Bajura  with the Government of India financial assistance of NRs 44.4  million. The 11 VDCs of this district and some parts of the neighboring districts such as Humla, Mugu, and Kalikot are its catchment areas.   The present   infrastructure of the school is dilapidated.
