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.

Since the establishment of ECCA in 1987, it has been actively involved with establishing and mobilizing Nature Clubs / Child Clubs in schools towards environment conservation and protection. Children’s club are independent and voluntary groups within the schools, aiming to promote active participation of students in different learning process. ECCA pioneered the concept of children’s nature clubs in Nepal in 1992 and have been actively working with students through children’s club in different issues such as environmental conservation, sustainable development, health & sanitation, children’s rights and more.

With an objective to create an opportunity to learn, share and increase network with other nature clubs operating in different regions, ECCA had organized National Children’s Club Conference in past. The 1st conference was organized in the year 2000 and 2nd conference was organized in the year 2009. Hence, in order to create more platforms for the students for their exposure, we are preparing to organize 3rd National Conference on Children’s Club in the month of April.

The 3 days event from 11th April to 13th April will include various activities like plenary sessions by experts, Knowledge marketplace, Children’s Club Paper presentation, exhibitions from children clubs, games, presentation by students, documentary shows, environmental games etc. These activities will support to increase the knowledge of students along with the skills required to organize programs and activities through their clubs in days ahead.

Our Involvement in Yachhu Macha Pucha (Clean Child Group) as board members during our school days had contributed a lot in our knowledge, skill and leadership development. We had organized lots of community projects in our community during our participation in club and had been able to win the concept for promotion of Safe Water concept in Knowledge Marketplace during the 2nd National Conference.
