When we talk about empowerment, activities related with training and sharing knowledge plays a vital role. As we planned to extend our activities related with the study of climate change through mobilizing students in various schools, the teachers of the school where programs will be implemented must be empowered. Hence, a teachers training on study of climate change was organized from 2nd April to 4th April at Dalchoki VDC of Lalitpur District. 14 teachers from 7 different schools located in various VDC’s of Southern Lalitpur, actively participated in the training program.

During the training various topics related with climate changes were shared and discussed. The participants were also capacitated in order to note the data on various protocols related with climate and local environment. How to identify the type of cloud and its coverage in sky, measuring the Ph Value, conductivity and transparency of water, max & min temperature, pointing GPS coordinate of the location on earth etc were shared during the training program.

“This training is very new to me and as the contents in this training program required hands-on involvement, I really learned a lot through participating in this program. As a science teacher, now I am very confident to teach practical topics related with environment and climate change to my students. Mr. Rajendra Lama, teacher of Shree Bhagbhairab Sec. School, Chaughare VDC, Laitpur District, expressed his confidence after the training program.

All the participating schools were equipped with the tools and materials required to collect the data related with hydrology and atmosphere protocol.

We thank you for your support and believing in us. Updates of our activities are also regularly posted in our Facebook page, Blog, Youtube Channel and on Twitter. We look forward towards your valuable response, suggestions and comments regarding our work.

Effect of GFT at Gothbhyanjyang School - Aug 15

With added facility of incineration in Toilet
With added facility of incineration in Toilet

Due to various social and cultural contexts, girls are treated differently than boys from the beginning of childhood in our society. As a result, they tend to become shy, and find it hard to express themselves.

“Mam, Rita needs a sanitary napkin, could you please provide a piece of napkin for her?” Because use of sanitary pad among girl students in village is new as well as they are not used to with it, students are shy and seeks help from their fellow colleague to get a pad from me, said Ms. Pramila Ghimire, Teacher of Shree Gothbhyanjyang Higher Secondary School, where we completed the construction of girls friendly toilet. With the support of District Education Office Lalitpur, we received a box of sanitary pad for our school. I organized a small demonstration on how to use the sanitary napkin, how to manage it after its use, and distributed a set of pad to around 75 girls students studying in grade 8 to 10. I also directed students from grade 6 and 7 to ask me if they need it, Ms Pramila Ghimire added.

After the distribution of sanitary pad to the girls in school and with the help of Ms. Pramila madam through providing proper orientation and guidance on how to use it, the use of girls friendly toilet has increased. This activity has been highly effective towards supporting in safe menstrual hygiene among girls students in our school. We the teachers of Shree Gothbhyanjyang HSS thank ECCA for supporting this initiation in our school, said Mr. Laxmi Timilsina, Head Teacher of School.

With the feedback received from the teachers of Gothbhyanjyang School and request received from other school, the expansion of the activities in schools of Lalitpur District and Kavre District is being planned. Feedbacks like support of Sanitary Pad for students and proper orientation on how to use it were also received which are under review and will be implemented as per need.

We would like to thank all our donors and supporters in our initiation towards providing safe environment in schools for better education for our children. Please help us spreading the words within your families and friends network. We are also looking forward towards your valuable suggestions and comments on our work. Please subscribe our Facebook, Twitter, Blog and Youtube channel in order to receive frequent updates related with our programs and activities.

A Day at Chaughare, Distributing Solar Light

27th July 2015, was a clear and sunny day when our team left ECCA-office for an approx two-hours-ride to a small village located in Chaughare VDC, Lalitpur. In the fond of our car, there were Solar Lighting Systems to be distributed to EQ affected families in need. Additionally, we carried various piles of note books for the students in severely damaged school in the same area. I feel it was a short trip, but the activities with a long-term impact.

Some families were already waiting for us when we arrive at the partly destroyed school yard (Shree Gyanodaya Lower Secondary School, Chaughare) to distribute the Solar Lighting System. The system distributed consisted of 2 bright bulbs along with the mobile charging facility and radio inbuild in the system. This reliable and environmentally friendly source of electricity for their homes. will keep the family members safe during the dark hours of night time and support the family members connected with communications and information.

As we had limited system to support the community members, Mr. Tej Lama (Chairman of School Management Committee) supported us through identifying the highly needy family members in the community. Families with old aged members, disabled members, nursing mothers, and school going children were highly prioritized in the distribution.

Amongst them, there’s a 99-year-old lady with her great-granddaughter. She still remembers her earthquake experience of 1933 and shared about her experience during that time. The great-granddaughter also shares her joy with other children and gathers together with her friends who all love dancing.

In the scenery of the partly destroyed school yard, the Solar systems stand like a symbol of hope and shows that earthquake recovery and ecology can go together hand in hand. And apart from providing electricity for the basic needs of families, there will be still enough solar power for playing music – so the girls can go on dancing!

It is made possible due to your help and support. Thank you for your help and support. We would also like to thank Mr. Kushal Gurung (CEO) of WindPower Nepal and The Mayor Hotel for supporting the solar system for the families of Earthquake Affected families in Nepal. Please share the news in your network so that together we can bring greater impact in our community.
