Children sometimes walk for 8 hours a day to attend school in rural Nepali villages. There are no paved roads in rural Nepal. The children attending school in these remote villages are walking over rough terrain through streams and rivers. Naturally, this promotes a high dropout rate.
To encourage our village scholarship students to remain in school, we devised an innovative approach that will allow these children to attend school while living in NYF’s local dormitories during the week. The students will return to their families on weekends.
NYF is currently building the dormitories close to the school. Teachers will also reside at these dormitories during the week. This will enable the teachers to assist the students with their homework and to act as guardians for the children.
We need funding to properly furnish these dormitories. The dormitories will have a communal kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, and a study hall and living space. We thank you for supporting this worthwhile project. Follow this link to watch our new 4 minute video:http://bit.ly/uv6is2.
