Unbelievable, but true! We have actually made it! The new target amount of 27,000 euros was reached and we owe that ONLY to YOU!
Not only have we reached the first target amount of 22,000 euros, we have exceeded it by 25%. This is of course accompanied by the fact that our generous super donors, as described in the offer, fill it up to 30,000 euros.
So you have given us and especially of course the children of Dhoksan the basis to soon have new space to learn, play and grow up.
What's next? Planning for the earthworks, foundations and primary structure material can thus, thanks to you, soon become a reality. Of course, we are already busy refining the designs and translating the children's initial ideas from the school subject into ensemble and building designs. We are currently determining the exact building locations and dealing with the tree population. We are also already in contact with material suppliers and companies for earthworks. As you can see from the pictures, the school subject ,,We Build Our House" is also constantly evolving and enriching us with never-ending inspiration for the design of the kindergarten buildings.
And once again. We are infinitely grateful to you for the support you give us. Not only through the incredible amount of funding, but also the encouragement that reaches us. We read every message on Instagram, Startnext, every email and every YouTube comment. You give us constant support and for that we want to thank you especially on the occasion of this milestone!
We will keep you posted and provide you with regular updates, on our other channels as well.

We are infinitely grateful to you that we have reached this milestone together. As of this morning, the target sum of the Startnext campaign counts more than 22,000 euros in donations. We would like to thank each and every donor and supporter for placing their trust in us. Now you are an integral part of the future Shree Shila Devi Kindergarten. This is the most successful crowdfunding in the history of Supertecture and we have only you to thank for that. We managed to raise the amount in 20 days, ensuring the project launch in two-thirds of the time. To underline how incredible this whole thing is, we've put together a few hard facts for you.
20/30 days until the minimum amount was reached
for this we have...
30 x cuddled a goat
26 x Ayrak Shots enjoyed
4 x shoutouts
11 x postcards printed
1 x gave our editor behind the scenes material
1 x drew a supercharicature
2 x started project books
You are the crowd we could not have dreamed of.
Now the first hurdle has been overcome. The project can start and we are already working with hot fingers on the execution planning and are simultaneously busy with the preparation of the building site.
Best, Team 11 from Dhoksan
In the beginning, our time in Nepal was filled with a lot of planning, organization and concept considerations. We quickly agreed that we definitely want to include the actual users of the kindergarten in the design process. After spending a few weeks putting the finishing touches on our newly planned school subject, we had our first school sessions last Friday!
With a lot of attention to detail, we spent the week working hard until late at night preparing, printing, folding and organizing to make our debut as teachers in the best possible way - and it was absolutely worth it. After a small introduction with the whole school, we had four lessons to include as many age groups as possible. We made sure to adapt to the children´s abilities. There was cutting, painting, crafting and thinking. Our goal in each lesson is to get as many results as possible for our building project, but also to have learning objectives for the children. At the end of the day we were overwhelmed by all the creative, interesting and motivating moments and results. Now we are busy preparing the new lessons and revising the old ones.
Moreover, we are of course very happy about the progress of the crowdfunding - you are simply the best! If you tell all your friends and everyone else you meet about it, we will manage to raise the missing percentages by leaps and bounds!
We are looking forward to many more new things the children and we are about to learn and are happy if you accompany us on that journey.
Best regards from Dhoksan,
Jakob, Nils, Matti and Sophie
Team 11 has arrived in Dhoksan! Since August we - Matti and Nils, two architecture students from Berlin and Jakob and Sophie, two civil engineering students from Innsbruck - are here to plan and realize a kindergarten. Next to the existing Shree Shila Devi Primary School, four classrooms and a sanitary room with kitchen and toilet are planned. Currently the kindergarten children use several rooms of the elementary school.
Already in the first weeks we were warmly welcomed by the school management and were able to get to know the entire elementary school directly at an internal school event.
Now we are motivated to the fingertips to start with the project and are of course very happy if you accompany us on the way to the finished building. We also want to give smaller and bigger updates about our progress here from time to time.
Best regards from Nepal and see you soon,
Jakob, Matti, Nils and Sophie
