Dear Supporters,

Thanks for your continued interest in helping us empowering our students towards learning climate change in Nepal. Funding to this project is currently supporting training for the students of 3 schools to learn various hydrological parameters in their locality. The training and study is blended with course work and students from grade 8 & 9 were trained to receive data's related with hydrology from their nearby water source. Along with this activity, a research was also conducted in the schools through mobilizing our staffs and volunteers to test various parameters of water being used in the schools. Lab test of the water samples being received from schools were also conducted in order to analyze the safety of water being used in the schools. Coliform, hardness, Ph, Turbidity, Salinity, etc were the main parameters that were tested in lab and the results indicated as the water to be safe. In few schools, the coliform tests were found positive hence, they were asked to use protective measures like chlorination or other proper technique prior to use of water for drinking purpose.

Thank you for your continuous help and support for our project. We would like to request you to share the information of our project within your friends and families network to expand our network. You can also receive regular updates on our programs and activities through our Facebook page, Twitter and our Blog Post. Do let us know about your valuable feedback and suggestions.

Thanks & regards

The event was a memorable for all the students as well as the teachers as there were lots of learning's and networking with the participants with other clubs.

Mr. Punya (Facilitator Teacher of Kalidhunga Nature Club) expressed that Knowledge Market Place (KMP) has been a real new experience for him. He is really inspired by the way of expression and activeness presented by the students from other nature club in KMP and got himself determined to motivate the members of his nature club to take them into a new height of self expression and activeness.

Through the participation in conference, the students also exchanged contacts of friends from different clubs and expressed their willingness to contact each other in near future.
