Apart from supporting scholarships every year for the needy students, we also organize programs and events which help our students to develop their leadership skills, communication skills, confidence build-up etc. These types of programs are mostly organized as an outdoor activity, far from their school, which we also call as Education Out of Class (EOC).

In the month of October, we had organized a “One Day Life Skill Training and Nature Hike Program” for over 140 students from different schools. The program was organized in Shivapuri National Park. It was a fun filled educational program with hiking inside forest including different games like Each One Teach One (To increase memory power and knowledge), Crow & Crane (To help quick decision) etc were played. Using suction pipe to collect insects found during hiking and studying their morphology and physiographic feature were one of the most enjoying and learning moments for the students. The collected insects were set free without any harm in their own environment after study by students.

The Five important life skills; Goal setting, Cooperation, Confidence, Communication and Leadership were also shared among the students through various games, discussion and activities during hiking. Students also expressed their concern about saving and preserving local environment through performing cleaning activities of the event venue as well as during hiking through collection plastic wastes found on their way and disposing it in proper disposal area.

At the end of the event, Suraj Thakuri (student of grade 9) expressed his gratitude towards the trainer for making his day a memorable. “This is my first hiking program and I really enjoyed my time. The games helped develop confidence within me and had an opportunity to practice my leadership skills. I also learned a lot about nature and how to take care of it”.

Getting similar more feedbacks from students, we thought of organizing similar programs for more students in coming days ahead. Hence, a series of programs related with Life skill is planned for the implementation in the month of December. More students will be involved in the program so as to help them increase their leadership skills and knowledge.

We also would like to thank you for your continuous support in our campaign and activities to support the students of Nepal and support the education of student in Nepal. I would also like to take to request you to disseminate the information within your circle of friends and families so as to increase support in our program. We look forward towards receiving your feedback, comments and suggestion at ecca@mos.com.np so that we could implement our program more effectively. We hope for 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. We are also looking forward towards your valuable suggestions and comments regarding our works as well.

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.

THANK YOU for all your support towards bringing change in the life of students and people of Nepal. Please help sharing the information of our activities within your friends and families in order to bring change in the life of rural people.

We seek your support in the daysahead. Please like our Facebook page to get updates regarding our activities 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.
