With a broad vision of Improving School Environment and a Holistic Development of Mirge VDC of Dolkha District, Nepal, an initial approach towards implementation of School Environment Improvement program has been launched with the support and initiation of Mr. Jack Williamson from Australia. The main objective towards the implementation of this program is to educate the villagers and to rise them out through poverty and manage them towards sustainable future.

Prior to the implementation of the program, A preliminary survey towards the acceptance of the concept of School Environment Improvement and need analysis of the local community had been made through a field visit by Mr. Angel Chitrakar, Program Officer of ECCA on 16th to 19th November 2010. During this field visit, discussions with various stakeholders (local youths, teachers, community members and parents) of the communities had been made to know their perception on different issues for community development.

The discussion drew the conclusion about the need to increase the quality of education and the infrastructure for the educational institution. The need of developing a broader vision towards developed community and the need of awareness in different social issues in the community were also been made.

Mr. Jack Williamson, had also made a two week field visit from December 2010 to January 2011 in Mirge. His experience during of field visit has been posted in his blog, which could be accessed through the link provided below.

To initiate the implementation of the program, a visioning workshop for the local youth and teachers of the school has been planned to be implemented on April/May 2011. The main objective towards implementation of this workshop is to create a vision of the participants towards the holistic development of the mirge village. The youth workshop will be followed by a training program for the school students, which will focus towards their role in implementation of school environment improvement program in their schools and awareness raising in different issues in their community.

We would like to express our gratitude towards all the donor community and the GG Team for your contribution, continuous support and encouragement for the promotion of this program. We anticipate for the same kind of support in future as well as would like to request for your few minutes of time towards promoting our program in your circle.

  • Orientation and Training Conduction in Schools and Communities: Different orientation and re-orientations were conducted in schools, in slum areas of kathmandu, for different women's groups of East Nepal, and for teachers of different schools. Trainings on the use of chlorinator were conducted in Illam and Sunsari Districts, and different Rotary Club supported Schools of Lalitpur District.

Similar programs were also organized by Buddha Secondary School, Kerabari, Morang (East Nepal).
  • Survey on WATASOL User Response: Survey on WATASOL user response was done in East Nepal and also in the slum areas of the Kathmandu valley. During survey, it was found that most of the users didn't like the smell of chlorine solution the first time but after regular use they had no problem with the smell. Some users had discontinued the consumption of chlorinated water because of its smell.
  • Door-To-Door Campaign: For the promotion of safe drinking water campaign in East Nepal, ECCA mobilized two social mobilizers for Door-To-Door campaign.
