Better Schools in Rural Nepal!



Educate the Children will improve numerous schools in rural Nepal, ensuring a safer and more pleasant learning environment for thousands of children. We will repair or replace roofs, plaster and paint interior and exterior walls, provide classroom furniture, build sanitary toilet facilities, and improve school playgrounds.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many schools in rural Nepal are in poor physical condition: they are often run-down, open to the elements, without sufficient furniture or suitable recreational equipment, and sometimes even unsafe. Children must spend hours every day in these unattractive and uncomfortable settings. They cannot do their academic best if they are crowded onto inadequate seating in drab surroundings, or having to cope with rain coming through leaking roofs. Poor attendance is common at such schools.

How will this project solve this problem?

Educate the Children has been committed to improving the quality of education in Nepal for nearly 25 years. Through this project, we will ensure that schools in the rural Dolakha District of east central Nepal can receive necessary improvements, including: 1. Plastering and painting exterior and interior walls 2. Roofing repair, minor or major 3. Grounds maintenance and playground improvements 4. Sanitary toilet facility construction 5. Furniture for classrooms

Potential Long Term Impact

When children have a comfortable, safe, and appealing environment in which to learn, they perform better academically. Their attendance rates improve, and they are able to remain more engaged during the school day. Teachers too report better job satisfaction when their classrooms are more attractive and better equipped.
