Girls Friendly Toilet in Souther Lalitpur Schools

Refurbished Girls Friendly Toilet In School
Refurbished Girls Friendly Toilet In School

Among various VDC's, Dalchoki VDC is located just at a distance of 24 km south of Lalitpur city. As a village located in southern hilly region of Kathmandu valley, the pace of development activities are very low. Recently, the only road connecting road to the village is gravelled and the mobility of vehicles are sparsely seen in the roads. Established in 1973, Shree Goathbhyanjyang Higher Secondary School is one and only high school serving education upto grade 12 in the village for the children in the community. At the moment, the school is serving education for a total no. of 438 students among which 221 girls and 217.

As a school located in hilly region, the school lacks proper infrastructure for its operation. Among various requirement, proper and adequate facilities for safe sanitation, especially for girl's students is the most urgent and immediate need to be fulfilled in the school. Because of lack of proper and safe sanitation facility, the absent rates of girls' students in higher classes were in high rate. Hence, in order to provide basic sanitation facilities for girls students studying in higher grades, the school requested to refurbish the available sanitation facility in the school. Hence, as per the request received from the school, the initiation to refurbished the girls toilet through installing incinerator and adding basic water facilities has been initiated. The construction activities had been recently completed and are now in operation. Some of the updated glimpses are provided in the picture attached. Now we look forward towards receiving a positive impact in the decreasing the absent rate among the girls students in the school. The impact created in the school through the construction of incinerator and addition of water facilities in the toilet will be reviewed in upcoming educational fiscal year and will be reported.

We thank you all for your support in our initiation towards providing better education for the students of rural Nepal. Please help us spreading the words in your friends and families network. We look forward towards your valuable suggestions and comments on our work. Frequent updates are also posted in our Facebook, Twitter, Blog and Youtube related to our programs and activities.

Nature Club Ex Com Members of Majhgau School

Nearly half decade passed away since we had first launched our training program for the local youths and student in Mirge VDC of Dolkha District towards the implementation of School Environment Improvement Program in schools. Since then, lots of meetings with relevant stakeholders, training for local youths and students, monitoring visit and excursion program has been organized in order to capacitate our stakeholders of our program. With lots of ups and downs, discussion with locals during implementation of programs, new concept and strategies to improve the condition of school environment, we now have been able to view many changes in the school and in the community. With passing time, the local representative expressed their views of our program as follows:

Mr. Dhurba Pakhrin (Nature Club Facilitator Teacher – Majhgau Lower Secondary School) says “Usually, the children from Tamang Community are pretty shy in nature. They do not interact freely with new faces. But, through various extra-curricular activities regularly implemented in school and community, the students are very open with new people as well as now-a-days interact freely with other people. In other words, the speaking capacities of students are greatly enhanced through the activities of nature club in school”.

Mr. Bomhari Dahal (Principal, Kalidhunga Higher Sec. School) expresses that “I found a lot of behaviour changes, activeness and willingness to take responsibilities among students before and after establishing nature club in school. The students after operation of nature clubs are well disciplined and well behaved along with their active involvement in improving school environment to facilitate learning in schools. The students regularly organize various programs in school as well as in community thus helping us towards reaching out to community members and conveying our message to them as well. In general, the operation of nature club  supported us a lot in improving the learning environment as well as the relation with teachers and students our school”.

Ms. Kalpana Dahal (mother of a student from Kalidevi School) expressed her joy of her son’s educational improvement as he started to keep himself clean, tidy as well as initiated preserving local environment nearby her house after his involvement in nature club established in school. She shared that everyone in the community also appreciates her that her son shares other children about need to change the environmental issues and she feels proud that her son is involved in various activities through Nature Club.

3 R Workshop to Support ECDC

Mahakaleshwor Early Childhood Development Center
Mahakaleshwor Early Childhood Development Center

There is no doubt that Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC) plays a vital role towards the cognitive and physical development of a child. The activities organized in ECDC through using various educational materials and games materials helps children to develop their brain along with increasing their socially networking skills. But, the ECDC’s being operated in various locations lacks proper facilities and enough educational materials in the centre, hence challenging the role of ECDC in child development. Hence, in order to extend our support towards ECDC, a day workshop on 3R (reduce, reuse and recycle) was conducted on 31st January 2015, Saturday in ECCA hall.

The workshop was organized to raise funds for supporting painting activities in an ECDC established in Shree Mahakaleshwor Primary School located at Chitpol-6, Sanga through the “Support -a-Child” Campaign. The workshop also intended to aware youths on 3R concept and to share the role of ECDC in child development and its contribution in our society. Through this workshop, we also deliberate to increase the role of youth and their contribution in community based social organization like ECDC.

The practical sessions like paper recycling, reusing and discussion on reducing paper waste during the workshop helped the youth participants towards understating multiple aspects of 3 R Concept. All the participants enjoyed making paper from paper pulp, paper basket and weaving paper bags on their own. The games played during the workshop helped the participants to get along with each other and create a harmonious environment among the participants. The fund raised through the registration of participants,

Ms. Toya Homa expressed “I loved how the entire program was operated with the 3R theme and for a social cause i.e. support a child campaign. Games were the biggest highlight of this workshop. Not only were they entertaining, it was also the perfect medium to break ice between the participants. I would love to be part of your program again.”

“I enjoyed the program till the end. I learned what actually can be done from the waste papers. The program was further made exciting through games and dance which gave us zeal throughout the program” said Mr. Suyash Shrestha.
