Harold Whiting School is sponsored by David Whiting in memory of his father. The school was built in 2007, and it replaced an old, unsafe building called Dhruba Tara School, in Khawa, Kavre District. The former building totally collapsed in the earthquake of 2015.
Yadab, who has been the principal of the school for more than 12 years, was at home when the earthquake struck, and broke his arm while saving his child.
