The Apa Sherpa Foundation is working closely with the Thame Sherpa Heritage Fund and other organizations to finalize the building plans needed for the Thame School. Originally, there were a total of five individual buildings on the Thame school grounds. Due to the recent devastation of the earthquakes, all of them will need rebuilding. However, the remote location of Thame causes difficulty in the rebuilding process. All of the supplies must either be transported by helicopter, or carried up to the village by porters.
