Namaste.

Two biggest festivals of Nepalese - Dashain and Tihar (commonly known as the festival of lights) occurred in the past quarter (September – November) and consequently schools were closed for a long period of time and also, people were busy in the festival.

However, Kali Devi Lower Secondary School Nature Club organized Clean-up program and also developed a garden in the open space inside the school compound. Inter Class Quiz Competition held in October helped to enhance the knowledge of the students. For the promotion of safe drinking water and the chlorine solution, students visited each household to make the villagers aware on the need to use disinfected drinking water. Such Door to door campaign was held in both the months September and October. During such visits, students also sell chlorine solution.

Similarly, Majh Gaou Lower Secondary School Nature Club organized Hand writing Competition and Essay Competition in their school. Maintaining school based herbal garden was also done. Clean-up program was held in the community. The students conducted a campaign in the village to promote the use of Tulip Filter (which is a Colloidal Silver treated ceramic filter adjusted with a siphon system that allows the faster filtration of drinking water).

Laligurash Bright Future Lower Secondary School Nature Club organized orientation program for the villagers on the need of using safe drinking water and use of chlorine solution to disinfect drinking water.

We sincerely thank all our donors, well-wishers and partners of Global Giving. We welcome your feedback and suggestions.

Thanks & Regards,

Information dissemination plays a vital role towards awareness on different issues and changing habits which will ultimately impact the day to day lifestyle of people. Hence, as a part of information dissemination to public on Safe Drinking Water Campaign, wall paintings were done in seven different schools located in Kathmandu valley as well as in rural areas. With the day to day visibility of the message through wall paintings, people are continuously aware regarding the requirements of use of safe drinking water in their day to day life, ultimately changing their habit and lifestyle.

  1. Bal Binod Secondary School, Natole, Lalitpur
  2. Bishankhu Narayan Secondary School, Godamchour, Lalitpur
  3. Kitini Higher Secondary School, Taukhel, Lalitpur
  4. Tika Bhairab English Secondary School, Tika Bhairab English School
  5. Kanchan Secondary School, Chapagou, Lalitpur
  6. Jalpa Secondary School, Dhapakhel, Lalitpur
  7. Padhma Prakash Secondary School, Dhapakhel, Lalitpur

Along with information dissemination, availability of infrastructure for a particular purpose also plays an important part towards changing the habit and lifestyle of people. Hence, as an infrastructural support to the students in order to make them accessible towards safe drinking water, water dispensaries including water jar’s were supported in six different schools mentioned as follows:

  1. Tri Ratna Cooperative School, Bungmati, Lalitpur
  2. Tikabhairab English Secondary School, Tikabhairab, Lalitpur
  3. Kitini Hihger Secondary School, Taukhel, Laitpur
  4. Balkumari Secondary School, Prayagpokhari, Lalitpur
  5. Lalit Kalyan Lower Secondary School, Bholdhoka, Lalitpur
  6. Mahendra Gram Secondary School, Tikathali, Lalitpur

Nature Club members add chlorine solution in jar for providing safe drinking water to the students of their school. “Installation of water dispenser with jar in different location of school had made us very easy access to safe water during the school operation. Previously, it was very hard for us to use chlorine as we required to climb up in he water tank, which is also very risky for us” – Suraj Tamang, Nature Club President of Kitini Higher Secondary School.

Update-Solar Tuki-Nov13

Sagma Secondary School, Bhogtani VDC, Morang
Sagma Secondary School, Bhogtani VDC, Morang

Established in 1956, Shree Sagma Secondary School, located at Bhogteni – 6, VDC is also one of the oldest school among 12 schools located in Bhogteni VDC of Morang District. Located in northern hilly rural region of the district, it provides secondary level education for above 250 students of the community. Students walk a minimum of 15 min to 2 hrs to reach the school for their education. Only connected with rural road network with sparse existence of public transportation facilities during dry season only, the community needs to walk for nearly 6 hrs to reach the nearest marketplace for purchasing their daily required commodities.

Lack of electricity access in this community has forced students to use kerosene as an only option during evening hours to study. Purchase of kerosene is also very rare for the members of this community due to low economic condition of families. Hence, students have hard time studying during evening hours. Some families had installed solar home system in their houses for lighting facilities. But, the poor income families do not have income enough to purchase and install the solar home system in their homes, forcing them to use kerosene lamp as an only alternative for lighting during evening hours.

Recently, through the support of Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, Kathmandu, we have been able to support the installation Community Charging Centre in the School and support 100 set of solar tuki to the students. After the distribution of solar tuki for the students in this school, we made a monitoring field visit in the community. Here are some of the glimpses from that field visit which I would like to share with you.

The smile in the face of children and families after using solar tuki encouraged me to continue my work in this field and support the needy families of rural areas in order to support their education of students and children.

THANK YOU for your support and believing in US. YOUR Help and Support is Invaluable to US in our WORK. Because of Your help and support, we have been able to make difference in the life of needy families. We look forward towards the same support in coming days ahead. Please share our stories within your circle of friends and family to help us bring changes in the rural communities of Nepal.
