Seasonal greetings to all our donors, well-wishers and supporters from ECCA, Nepal.

As in our previous quarterly report, we had mentioned that the construction of drinking water storage tank and construction of taps are in nearly completion stage in Kalidhunga Higher Secondary School, We hereby would like to inform you all that the students are getting a maximum benefit of the completed construction by now. 7 taps constructed in 3 different places is providing benefits to all the students to provide easy access to clean drinking water facilities in the school. Maintaining greenery in the school was our another objective of School Environment Improvement program to be implemented in the school and the school helper has been able to maintain the greenery in school through providing adequate water to the plants so as to maintain the greenery initiated in the school.

As per plan to organize Nature Club Reformation training on 10-11 May, 2012, the training program was successfully organized. A copy of report to take reference for the activities that has been done during the training program, has been attached with report. The report also includes the action plan prepared by the NC Members that they want to organize in their schools and training for the students to increase their knowledge and skills.

Overall, the activities in this quarter of the year has been able to bring a significant impact and changes in the school and the community. While discussing with teachers and the community members, they feel the change in the school and the behavior of the students who are engaged with nature club and its activities. And they are looking forward to get more impact in the students from the programs we organize in schools and communities.

We are planning to organize trainings on water purification techniques in school as well as to be implemented in the community by students, in this quarter of the year. Also, various skill based trainings like, wall-news paper development training, leadership training and Wall Commics training are planned to develop the skills of the students in the long run ahead.

With the above notes, we would like to express our sincere thanks to all our donors, supporters, well-wishers and the GlobalGiving team for your continuous support in our initiation. We would also like to request you to disseminate the information of our program in your circle so as to raise funds and support the education of needy students. We hope for your feedback, comments and suggestion regarding our program at ecca@mos.com.np so that we could implement our program more effectively.

ECCA would like to express our sincere thanks to all our supporters, well-wisher and partners of GlobalGiving.

In the fiscal year 2011/12. ECCA provided 162 Scholarship to 16 community school students of Lalitpur district. To measure the effectiveness and benefits created by the scholarship program. consultation and feedbacks were collected from the school personals. The school’s official consisted of teachers facilitating the Nature Club, principal and vice principals. Upon evaluation, it was found that the students who have received the scholarship have started showing progress in their study along with the affinity towards extracurricular activities.

Mr. Hem Chandra Raigai (nature club mentor teacher of Yashodhara Bauddha Secondary School) stated that students have been motivated by the support and are concentrated towards their studies. Likewise teachers of Minnath lower Secondary School and Tri-ratna Cooperative School; Ms. Kalpana Kyastha, Principal and Mr. Krishna Man Maharjan; Vice-Principal respectively told that the students who used to spend their time on helping their families to generate income so that they could afford their studies and studying materials now have started capitalizing their free time for learning new things and doing the nature club activities. Engagement in the nature club has raised their understanding regards to the environment conservation and has led them for their personality development. The students have realized the power of team work, communication and leadership skills and know how needed for their well being in this competitive world.

“We are proud of our student as they have identified the growth path for themselves and even have paved the way for other students interested in similar kind of activities. Over all the school is getting showcased as the second home of these active students in the community and the reputation is created amongst the competitive private schools”, they further added.

On behalf of the students, schools and our self, we would like to express our gratitude and thankfulness to all our Donors for your continuous support which you have been providing us. In days to come we also seek for similar helping hand towards generation of smiley faces in the rural schools of the country.

Project Update - Solar Tuki July 12

Education Through Solar Tuki
Education Through Solar Tuki

Seasonal greetings and thank you, to all our donors, supporters and well-wishers for your continuous support in our program. Without your support we would not have been able to serve the needy community in our country.

New Youth Children Development Society is an orphanage being operated by a group of youth in Bhaktapur District. It serves 52 deprived orphan children from various location of different age from 6 to 18.The orphanage has been providing all the basic needs of the orphans living there along with quality education.

However the centre faced a problem along with the entire country related to power crisis. The children who were staying there had a hard time studying after they returned from the school as the peak time for the power cut was in the evening. They used to study under the candle lights which created a nuisance for them. The main reason for it was the fire flame and being cautious towards the burning candles which created a lapse of concentration towards their studies. In addition they could not study at places, they wanted as the candle possessed high chances of fire accidents and also it could be easily extinguished by wind.

Thus keeping this in mind ECCA with financial support from Donors like you, has provided solar lights to the all the children of the orphanage in 50% subsidized rate. Along with it a solar mass charging station has been established where the light holders charge their solar lights. They charge their lights in the daytime and use it to study in the evenings.

These solar lights have provided an opportunity for the orphans to study in their regular schedule unlike the days before where they used to wait for the electricity to come. Even they can study at their desired place like in bed, in the balcony etc and the problems are not faced like those with the candle. “Now I do not need to wait for the electricity to study and the light seems better than the candle”, said Parshuram who is one of the residences of the orphanage.

We thank you for partnering with us to help the rural people and students of Nepal better their lives in an ecologically sustainable way. We hope for your suggestion and recommendation in future.
