Shamser Thapa has already been running the Heaven Hill Academy and New Vision Academy when he decided to acquire the New Marigold School as his 3rd school. Since he grew up under very poor and rough circumstances, his dream was to start a free and non-hitting school for the poorest children of the community. His modern teaching style includes positive reinforcement, creative library lessons, and the inclusion of children with Down Syndrome.
The global pandemic has hit the developing countries particularly hard. When the former owners needed to close down the New Marigold School in Chiti, Shamser and 264 decided that the children from the surrounding communities should not suffer from losing access to education. In 2022, Shamser and his team acquired the existing school buildings and permits to assure that these kids can go back to school.
