Supporting schools as they re-open in Nepal

Pre-school classroom transformed
Pre-school classroom transformed

The Covid-19 pandemic caused a complete lockdown in Nepal. Schools were closed from March 2020 to November 2020. 

In November, we supported schools to reopen by offering hygiene training and supplying PPE equipment. We also restarted our school improvement programme to help children stay safe and happy in schools.

In one primary school, we transformed a pre-school classroom by providing carpet, cushions, books and toys. In another, we offered WASH training and the young people then passed on their knowledge to their parents. We have also trained 90 teachers in child focussed methods. 

Thank you for your support. The more children we can keep attending school, the safer they will be from traffickers.

With grateful thanks

Drawing heart maps in lockdown

The lockdown in Nepal continues, as cases are still rising. Many people think that the worst is yet to come for Nepal. 

We have over thirty children in our care, who haven't been to school since March. Our houseparents are having to be incredibly resourceful in maintaining routine, exercise and education. Last month children undertook an exercise when they drew heart maps, showing their characters through what they liked and what they disliked. 

These exercises are really valuable to help children express themselves in a safe environment and form part of the healing process. 

Thank you for continuing to support us and our children through this very challenging period.

Continuing to support communities through Covid-19

With infections still rising, many people think that for Nepal, the worst is yet to come. With an open border with India, it's very hard to control the movement of people. Severe lockdowns since March have left many families on the brink of starvation as their work has dried up.

We are continuing to support families in remote communities in the district of Makwanpur. Support has included emergency food parcels, PPE for health posts, hygiene kits and handwashing stations. 

We are in touch with community leaders and responding as and when we can.

Thank you for remembering the people of Nepal during this extremely challenging time.
