From Letters to Light!

"If it weren't for the solar tuki, I would be struggling with oil lamps to study at night. The efficiency it bears has helped me keep up my grades at school", says Dibya Ghimire, a grade 8 student of Shree KaliDevi Higher Secondary School, Malta. Earlier ECCA had distributed solar tukis to 350 students of Shree KaliDevi H.S.S after the dreadful earthquake of April destroyed electrical infrastructures of the village.

Dibya, who is now staying in a temporarily built house recalls the earthquake to be 'an completely unexpected nightmare'. "95% of the houses in my village either got destroyed completely or damaged to an extent that requires its demolition. This forced all of us to through serious consequences", shares Dibya. "Even after few months, we were still trying to catch up with our lives that we were living before. What troubled me was the fear of not being able to attend our school anymore because the earthquake took most of the buildings. But it was a very good thing that our school got temporary classrooms built up and it opened again."

"I have my District Level Examination coming up. So studying late at night using solar tukis has become a routine for me." Dibya happily adds, "Solar tuki has not only helped students like me but also all of us here. Be it in the kitchen or out in the field, using solar tuki is a lot more fuel-saving and effective." Along with solar tuki distribution, training on solar tuki maintenance was also given to local people so, in case of any problem, people can get their own local technician. This has motivated people of Malta to use this efficient lighting technology.

Lastly, we thank Global Giving and all our supporters / donors for helping us support students like Dibya. Your continous contribution has helped us improve thousands of students' lives. For updates, please also visit our websiteFacebook,  Twitter , Blog and YouTube Channel.

Here are some glimpses from solar tuki distribution that took place in August 26, 2015.

Winter support for 214 students in Chaughare

Chaughare is one of the coldest places of southern Lalitpur district in Nepal. With the arrival of winter season, the temperature goes down at ultimate level often creating serious problems for regular conduction of schools. This year the problem is even worse. The earthquake of April made many students homeless leaving them to struggle for fulfillment of the most basic requirements of life: food and clothes. Attending schools is an equal challenge. There is little solace for those who can afford some clothing(which is a rare case) but for the rest, the struggle is beyond imagination.

To solve this problem, ECCA (Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness) in co-ordination with District Education Office and with GlobalGiving's support organized Winterization Support program for the students of Shree Bagh Bhairab Secondary School of Lalitpur, Chaughare on January 13, 2016. With Assistant District Education Officer of Lalitpur district Mr. Khem Adhikari as the chief guest along with the presence of program officer and representative from ECCA Mr.Rabindra Khatri, all 214 students of the school were provided with woolen jackets and caps.
