More classrooms from Arun Valley School; Music & Art School in Sekha for 400 students, secondary school and a school bus, hospitality and agriculture training at the Green village along with sewing workshop. CPET was conceptualized to provide economic sustianbility for Cunina.
The construction for the green village has begun, constructing 8 homes. Cunina is building a total of eight houses in the Green Village. Only tourists will be able to stay in these houses. Here, the students of the hospitality training can put their knowledge into practice and complete their internship by helping the visitors of the Green Village. After their internship, they will be ready for a job in the tourism sector.

The second step is to invest in an agricultural training, because the Nepalese mountain people eat almost the same thing every day. The students will learn how to grow vegetables that are hard to find in the region. These vegetables will be used in meals for the tourists and those that remain will be sold at the local market. 

This way, the project will become self-sufficient. Cunina will use the money earned from the tourist residences and the agricultural training to invest in the quality of the education at the Cunina Boarding School.
