Educational materials support for 14 schools in Dolakha

This July, 1822 students from 14 project schools of Dolakha district were provided educational materials support by ECCA. Out of these schools, 8 are from Mirge VDC and 6 from Gairimudi VDC. The support included essential learning materials such as school bags, copies, books, calculators, dictionaries, geometry boxes, pencils, sharpeners and pens.

The distribution took place on July 28 and 29, 2016. Sujan Rajbahak, one of ECCA counselors involved in the distribution program shared,“This wasn’t easy. The rainy season brought challenges; landslides and vehicle problem had us both tensed and worked out. But all the fatigue disappeared when we started distributing the materials in schools. Children were so happy that we knew all the hard work was worth.”

Solar Aid for Chepang Community

Chepangs are one of the most underprivileged indigenous groups of Nepal. Their settlement areas lie far from development and people are compelled to lead hard lives.  Lothar VDC is one of those remote areas of Chitwan which acts as a home to over 5027 Nepalese people of whom 4000 are highly marginalized Chepang  people (Census 2011). The struggle has the civilization pushed back under margin of underdevelopment.

Lack of electricity is one of the major concerns in Lothar. It has affected series of socio-economic factors including education. To enhance child education by introducing Lothar community to efficient solar  technology, ECCA provided Solar Tuki sets, mass charging sets as well as maintenance training to 4 villages of Lothar namely Lo-ling, Gundi, Cheuding and Kalitar. Students, teachers and parents of 4 schools gathered on June 6, 2016. Each household received 2 solar tuki lamps benefitting 292 households in total, whereas mass charging stations (to charge the solar lamp) are kept at schools as an motivating agenda for school attendance. Thereby, students must come to school to charge their solar lamp.

ECCA also provided 3 days long Solar tuki repair and maintenance training to 8 participants; 2 from each village. This will help them repair the lamps by themselves without having to travel far for its maintenance. These trained solar lamp repairing technicians will also be benefitting from the income received by repairing the solar lamps.

The program will definitely play a vital role in child education. One of the ECCA program officers elaborated at the end of the program-

“Although people enroll their children at schools, only an average of 50% attend school regularly. Drop out rate is high and we believe that solar tuki can be a milestone to change this."
