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.

Program Update - Herbal Garden Oct 13

Discussing Theoritical Knowledge with Students
Discussing Theoritical Knowledge with Students

With the promotion and publicity of Herbal Garden program being initiated from ECCA in different schools, we are now receiving lots of Expression of Interest from different schools towards developing Herbal Garden in their school periphery. Among the request received from different schools, we are being very selective towards the schools for the implementation of program. Selective in a sense that, the school where Herbal Garden program is implemented needs to replicate the idea and concept in other schools located in nearby periphery so that we do not require to reach all the schools for program implementation.

Shree Kalidhunga Higher Secondary School and Shree Majhgau Lower Secondary School of Mirge VDC, Dolkha District are two new schools where we have recently trained the students towards establishing Herbal Garden in their school. In this two day training program, 25 students involved from two schools were very much exited to develop Herbal Garden in their school, as this is a completely new concept and program for them.

“During this 2 day training program, I saw the feeling of harmony and sharing between students. And this is a very good sign of team work between students. I hope this program will increase the social bonding between the elder and smaller children, which we cannot teach the students through our course study. I thank ECCA and the trainers for implementing this program in our School” – Mr. Dhurba Pakhrin, Teacher, Shree Majhgau Lower Secondary School.

As the training program was organized in the school periphery of Majghau School, the students of Shree Kalidhunga Higher Secondary School were very much eager to implement their learning in their school periphery.

We express 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

Program Update – Learning Climate Change (Oct 13)

By Angel Chitrakar - Sr. Program Officer

 

“In our curriculum, Science subject provides theoretical knowledge to our students. We as a teacher for Science subject are challenged to provide an in-depth knowledge about the topics and contents to our students. As theoretical based education, the learning’s of students are limited to some extent. Hence, we are trying to facilitate students learning through integrating more and more experimental and practical activities which help them to understand and remember the topics and contents. This program supported us a lot to help students understand different topics of science as it required active involvement of students through hands-on activities for data collection on different environmental parameters like water, atmosphere and soil science. I personally found that the students are much more active than they were in previous days. They are much more curious to learn about environment as well as seek answers to various questions about different environmental problems and its consequences.” – Mr. Shyam Kumar Maharjan, Teacher, Harisidhi Secondary School

With the increasing population and human intervention in our local environment, there is no thought that our environment is changing. Hence, through this program, we aim to aware our students on different environmental issues and changes that are occurring in our surrounding through teaching them about various parameters of our environment like atmosphere, hydrology, soil science etc.

At the moment, we have initiated implementation of this program in 4 different schools. A training program for students and teachers of these four schools were organized at Harisidhi Higher Secondary School in the month of July. As all four schools selected were located in such a way that they are aligned nearby the river, study on different hydrological parameters was mainly focussed in this training program. Students seemed very much energetic while conducting experiment in hydrological parameters like testing Ph, Turbidity, Conductivity etc. After 6 months from the data collection date, a sharing workshop is planned among all the four schools. This will help the students to analyze the data and discuss the reasons behind the changes in data in particular parameters.

We would like to thank you for your support and believing & supporting us in our campaign. Because of YOU, we have been able to bring changes in the learning techniques and education of students. 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 hope for the same type of support in the days to come ahead. To get updates regularly regarding our activities, we would like to request you to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter to get our tweets. We are also looking forward towards your valuable suggestions and comments regarding our works as well.
