Shahid Smriti Boarding School in Manpur of Dang district is providing opportunities to children of parents who were killed, disappeared, injured or maimed during the conflict. Hemraj Sharma, a member of the school's administration committee says that 90 percent of the 350 students currently enrolled at Shahid Smriti have either been affected by the war or are children of political activists who earn meagre wages. Children from Manpur study free of cost and underprivileged students are even provided food while others pay a nominal fee of Rs 200 per month. School principal Basanta Raj Adhikari says students who study at Shahid Smriti till grade 8 have the option to transfer to Jankalyan Higher Secondary School in Dudhras and live in the hostel.
