Clean Energy for Education and Better Life

While the loadshedding hours (for the electricity supplied from the government utility company) continue to increase in Nepal, alternative energy usage is amplifying in the lives of Nepalese people. Currently, Nepal faces 10-11 hours of loadshedding in a daily basis. The consequential effects brought by this situation in national economy is often highlighted; however its effect on education of children is hardly addressed.

The earthquake had made it worse. Loss of electrical infrastructures, weakened financial state and lack of immediate accessibility to alternative energy sources in rural areas started bringing people back to using harmful kerosene lamps.

To help young children in their education, and to help women in their household chores, ECCA provided over 1500 solar tuki lamps (along with solar panels) in schools of different earthquake affected villages.

“It has been around 9 months since my children received this tuki in their school. Seeing my children study during night with this tuki makes me happy too”, said one of the parents last week.

We thank GlobalGiving and all our supporters / donors. Your continuous contribution has helped us improve hundreds of students' lives.

Next, we plan to provide solar tuki lamps to earthquake affected refugees' camp and backward Chepang community in Chitwan.

Water Filters Improve Health of Students

The water filters given by ECCA are finally making an impact.

In November,10 schools in remote villages of Southern Lalitpur district in Nepal were provided with more than 200 stainless steel water filters as post earthquake support. These schools, after having gone through severe infrastructural damage and loss of safe drinking water accessibility, were seeking for a way to provide their students with safe drinking water facility. Some schools had to fetch water from far places and the purity could not be guaranteed. The threat to health of students and school community was irrefutable, thereby prompting  ECCA to provide the filters to all schools. The distribution had taken place in accordance with  number of students and classrooms in each school.

These stainless steel body water filters are fitted with nano-silver treated ceramic candle, which can remove bacteria, turbidity and protozoa”, says Prachet Shrestha from ECCA.

Now, every classroom in each school has a water filter which assures possible level of purification even upon long storage.

“Cases of water-borne diseases such as diarrhoea among the students has reduced”, said one of the teachers from Shree Kali Devi Higher Secondary School, Malta. The water filters will prove to be even more useful with the incoming of monsoon season when drinking water have high chances of getting mixed with turbidities.
