Program Update - Herbal Garden-April14

Bandipur Herbal Garden - Extension
Bandipur Herbal Garden - Extension

With the increasing popularity of herbal garden in schools, more and more request for the implementation and extension of this program is on raise. In the month of March, as a follow-up activities of Nature Club, a herbal garden orientation and development training of three days was organized in a school of Bandipur. Students seemed very eager towards the development of herbal garden in their school compound.

A very interesting incident occurred during the training program. The first day went very smoothly with plantation of some herbs in the compound. On the second day, when the participants arrived in the training venue, we saw that all the plants planted in the earlier day were grazed by animals during evening hours. Keeping the spirit of the students alive, students made a fencing in the herbal garden constructed in the school. Ms. Tak Maya Gurung, Nature Club Facilitator teacher of Tribhuvan Nature Club expressed that she hadn’t saw such a spirit among the students during the development of herbal garden in any other program. She also thanked the facilitator Mr. Bipin for facilitating the training program in the school.

We would like to thank you for your continuous support in our initiation. Please share our project information within your friends and families network in order to increase the impact of your funding support and the program in our community. We seek your valuable suggestions and comments regarding our work. You can also get update from our Facebook page and through Twitter regarding our programs and activities.

Update-Climate Learning in Nepal

Orientation on Safe Drinking Water for Students
Orientation on Safe Drinking Water for Students

Through Climate learning program we are advocating students of different schools to aware them on different environmental topics and issues related with atmosphere, hydrology, soil science and canopy cover. Our activities in this program mainly includes field based survey, samplings, data generating, analyzing and concluding the data for organizing further advocacy programs in school and community level. Since the beginning of this program, as we trained the students from four schools to collect data on various protocols related with hydrology of nearby river, we organized an advocacy program for students of these schools through analyzing the data. A group of 6 youth volunteers were mobilized in fifteen schools to share the outcome of analyzed data with the students of grade 6 to 9 and facilitate towards taking some initiation of activities to aware others.

During the orientation program various issues and facts related with water like health & water borne diseases, ways of water contamination & pollution etc were shared with the students. Water purification methods such as gas chlorination, RO/UV filter, Tulip Filter boiling, candle filter, SODIS, and WATASOL etc were discussed. The discussions made with the students towards their role on initiating preventive measures for water pollution and contamination encouraged the students to identify various advocacy activities and take initiation through their children club in their community and residential periphery. By the end of the program, students in every school prepared an action plan of activities through their club to act on water related issues in their school.

Finally urging the students to implement the learning's of the class in their daily lives, facilitators wrapped up the classes, with a message, "If you want the change, you should initiate the change."

We would like to express sincere thanks to you for your help and supporting us to bring change in our schools and the students through our programs. Without YOUR SUPPORT we would not have been able to bring the changes. Furthermore, we would like to request you to share the information of our project within your friends and families network in order to receive continuous support for funding the program in other schools. We would like to request you to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter to get our tweets regarding our programs and activities.

Looking forward towards your valuable suggestions and comments regarding our works.

Mirge, Dolkha. When it comes to skill development and exposure of students in different topics, the activities organized by Nature club established in school plays a vital. Student expresses their feelings and understandings in different issues through organizing different events and activities from nature club in their school and communal peripherals. The activities organized will also help students towards developing different skills required in their day to day life. Hence, in order to motivate the students for continuity towards organizing different events and activities in their schools, frequent monitoring, follow-up and mentoring to the students needs to be done.

As a continual support activities for the nature club members along with enhancing their skills, two days Wall Magazine Preparation Training was organized on 20th and 21st February at Majhgau Lower Secondary School. A total of 45 students participated from 4 school were provided with an in-depth knowledge regarding the preparation of Wall Magazine. All students from each school worked as a team during the training towards preparing a set of wall magazine. By the end of the training program, students exhibited the wall magazine they had prepared during the training program.

In order to provide safe drinking water for students in every classroom, 3 sets of Jar dispensaries along with water jars were also distributed to all the participating schools. This ensures the provision of safe drinking water in the classroom.

As ECCA is working with Nature clubs and focusing in the holistic development of children, we are organizing 3rd National Conference on Children's Club on April 11-13, 2014. We are targeting to gather above 200 students representing children's club from various region of country. This program aimed to create an opportunity for the students to share knoweledge and understanding on different issues related with climate change, child friendly local governance, club sustainability, school environment and safe water.

With this information we would like to request you to support our program in order to create an opportunity for the students of Mirge to participate in the event.

We would like to thank you for your continuous support in our program to support the schools of Mirge and bring changes in the life of students in Nepal. We look forward towards the same type of support in the days to come ahead. Please like our Facebook page to get updates regarding our activities and follow us on Twitter to get our tweets.
