Summary

This program will educate and excite students about the various herbal plants indigenous to Nepal. Through the hands-on activities and education out of classroom in this program, students will be to get an education about the medicinal values and purpose of herbal plants planted in their school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Many in Nepal, especially children, are increasingly being alienated from traditional herbal knowledge due to increasing globalization. These herbs have been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. The worry is that if children do not develop an appreciation of these herbs then there will be little effort to conserve them.

How will this project solve this problem?

The "Promoting Herbal Gardens in Schools" program allows children to experience firsthand the process of planting and tending a garden. They will learn about a variety of herbal/medicinal plants and their traditional uses.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will give students a solid foundation of herbal and medicinal plants indigenous to Nepal. Schools will be able to replicate gardens in new schools, thus increasing the number of children exposed to these herbs. Students can use what they learn and teach family and friends about the importance of these plants.
