Solar Light Project Update-Feb14

Trained Solar Tuki Repair & Maintenance Persons
Trained Solar Tuki Repair & Maintenance Persons

By the end of December 2013, 9 schools located in 3 VDC’s of Morang District were supported with the installation of solar tuki community charging centre. As the schools were located in hilly terrains, the community did not have access to electricity. As a result the low income families in these communities till this day were forced to use kerosene as the only option for light in the evening hours. But, with the installation of these community charging centres in school compound, a total of 1200 students studying in these schools have been directly benefited, who now have access to safe and clean light in evening hours in their home.

Along with the support of establishing community charging centre in schools, 11 representative’s participants from these 9 different schools were trained towards repairing and maintaining the fault solar tuki’s. This two day’s training organized on 16th and 17th January had made them able to undertake the entire repair & maintenance activities required for an effective functioning of solar tuki. Each participant was also supported with a set of equipments required to run the repair & maintenance centre in their school. This will ensure about the continuous operation of solar tuki distributed among the students in the school.

This program is very good for us, because it has supported our children to study in a smoke free and clean environment. Previously, they used to study using kerosene for light in evening time. Some children makes excuses for reading showing health problem from kerosene lamp. Now, I believe that they can study safely with the light of Solar Tuki. And now with this 2 day’s training and equipments, I can also help the education of these children from my school through providing service of repairing the malfunctioning solar tuki’s.

– Mr. Sambhu Rai (Parents-Sarashwati Primary School).

Our primary students are benefiting from the use of solar tuki. And, I want to make sure that they don’t require switching to kerosene lamp any more. Hence, I participated in this 2 days repair and maintenance training and trained myself towards keeping the solar tuki in function all the time. I hope the tools set for repair and maintenance will support the skills that I have learned from this training and keeping my children out of kerosene lamp.

Belated Happy New Year 2014 to all our donors and supporters. Thank you all for the support and contributions made in the year 2013. Wish this New Year makes us capable of helping all the people who are distressed and in need of help and support.

“Lots of businessman visits our village every year to collect “Kurilo” (Local name of Aspiragus). I always wondered how those businessmen benefit from collecting grasses from our village as we used to feed it to our cattle’s. From this 2 day training program, I realized the use and benefits of Kurilo in our day to day life” – Anup Rana, Student of grade 5, Shree Tribhuvan Primary School, Bahun Bhyanjyang, Bandipur-7, Tanahun District.

Above is a feedback that we had received from a student after organizing 2 days Herbal Garden training program in December in a school, located at hilly region of Tanahun District. A total of 30 participants including students, teachers and local youths were trained towards developing herbal garden in school through organizing a demonstration plot in the school. During the program, participants were made aware on the need and importance of Herbal Plants, Herbal Garden and how to maintain herbal garden through practical hands-on activities. Preparation of herbarium and seasonal calendar was also shared with the participants so that they could also learn about the documentation of herbs and their harvest seasons.

Thank you for your continuous support and contribution towards our initiation of preserving herbs and education our upcoming generation towards its need and importance. 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 (Dec13)

Students Taking GPS Reading of their school

Since the initiation of Climate Learning program by ECCA in our school, our students of grade 8 to 10 had expressed high level of interest and enthusiasm towards learning and doing different science based activities in school. They had been actively involved in taking regular sampling and data from river located nearby our school. During each and every sampling, they come up with new questions related with different water related issues and had encouraged the discussion among their group. This had been a very useful educational tool for us. - Nani Chori Bajracharya (Nature Club Support Teacher, Prabhat Higher Secondary School).

Implementation of Climate Learning programs in schools had been a very useful tool for science teachers in school, as it has been providing opportunity for students to learn from practical involvement in various aspects. We have also been receiving request from other schools for technical support to implement this programs in their schools as well. And we are planning for the expansion in different schools in coming days ahead.

We would like to express our belated greeting for Christmas and wish for New Year 2014. Our deep gratitude towards 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.

Thanks & regards
