Until the new buildings were constructed, students were forced to take classes at temporary classes. According to Sakaiko, the building was built along with the support of Kyoto University students and Principal.

Japan's university provided Rs. 8.2 million while another four million rupees was collected from supporters to construct the buildings. With this the students would be well facilitated said Chungwa Chiri Lama, Principal of Junbesi Secondary School.
