Climate Change now integrated with "Support-A-Child: Help Child Go To School & Study" Program

ECCA initiated "Support-A-Child" Program in the year 2000. Experience has shown that enrollment and daily attendance of students increases and is maintained when learning is made interesting for them. ECCA aims to build up competency of students, by providing them opportunity to participate in different capacity development activities, including hands-on practical activities related with various environment parameters (so that students will be knowledgeable about their local environment).

Considering the linkage with other factors of education, now, we have integrated climate change learning into the "Support-A-Child: Help Child Go To School & Study program"   https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/support-a-child-nepal/

We thank you for your past support and look forward towards your continued support in the days ahead through the link

Herbal gardening now integrated with School Environment Improvement Program

ECCA initiated School Environment Improvement Program in the year 2000. Experience has shown that enrollment and daily attendance of students increases and is maintained when school facilities (toilets, water, greenery) are improved. Planting local herbs in the open space available within the school complex contributes toward beautification of the school, thereby creating positive impression on the students to come to their school daily. Managing open space also allows students to experience firsthand the process of planting and tending a garden as well as the medicinal values of the planted herbs.

Considering the linkage, now, we have integrated herbal gardening into the school environment improvement program https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/school-environment-improvement-program-nepal/   

We  have further linked the program with water sanitation and hygiene, teacher training, and developing common vision for the school (by involving school management committee, teachers, parents and the local community).

We thank you for your past support and look forward towards your continued support in the days ahead through the link

Solar Tuki: Empowering Rural Education

Studying, especially for girls, has never been easy in rural areas. Such is the case of Asmita, a resident of Loling VDC, Chitwan.

“I cannot study whenever I want to”, shares Asmita shyly. “There are house chores to do and younger sisters and brothers to look after.”

Asmita is one of the outstanding students of her class but her excellence in studies do not come easily. Like most of her classmates, she has list of chores to complete everyday before finally sitting to study at night.

“Before, I used to study without my parents knowing… only because we used kerosene lamps at night. And me using more kerosene meant more scolding!” Asmita reveals. But she doesn’t have to do it that way nowadays. The reason is solar tuki provided to her by ECCA, which uses zero kerosene and is designed for easy handling and maintanance.

“Two solar tuki lamps that I got in school, we use one for studying and my mother uses the other in the kitchen”,  she says.

For charging, she has to take the lamps to the school, where multiple charger has been kept. It has been a very good excuse to send her to school almost everyday.

Asmita’s story resonates with over 200 households, in her village and neighbouring villages, where solar tuki lamps and multiple chargers (in schools) were provided .  According to the respondents, this has minimized the use of kerosene to a huge extent and attendance number of students in schools is amplifying.

Thank you for your continued support.
