As a part of PHASE Nepal Teacher Training Programme, 58 Teachers of Manbu recently received a training on Child-Friendly and Interactive Teaching strategies. The 5-day long training was completely activity based and was conducted by PHASE education team who now have more than a decade of experience in practicing best teaching strategies.

During the training, primary and secondary school teachers learned to make and use low cost and no cost teaching materials as well as strategies for effective questioning, critical thinking, and collaborative learning.

" I have taught for more than 20 years but yet I feel I have to learn a lot. The activities I have learned from this training are practical enough to replicate in my classroom", says Thakur Pudasaini, Principal, Sitala Basic School, Manbu

PHASE is working with 10 schools in Manbu village, a remote village in Lower North Gorkha to instill child-friendly environment in the schools.

PHASE's practical teaching curriculum is both liked by the teachers and school supervisors and is often reached by other charities in Nepal seeking training consultancy in their education projects too.

Her relatives hurriedly carried her on a stretcher and headed to Kolti PHC but her situation got worse. PHASE Kolti Health Staff (ANMs) rushed towards the village to her avail. The ANMs met the mother on the way and accompanied her on her way to the PHC . But the worsening situation of the mother made them conduct a successful delivery of the child saving the life of the baby and mother. Both the mother and child were taken to the PHC immediately and provided necessary support such as providing oxytocin to the mother to release the placenta. After 24 hours both the mother and her healthy child weighing 3 kg were discharged and the family happily headed to their village.

This is a recent example of how PHASE Nepal , Government Health Centre and the community work together to provide lifesaving health support to some of the remotest villages lying in the terrain of Nepal Himalaya. PHASE Support in Kolti PHC has directly benefitted patient from more than neighboring villages even from Humla and Mugu.

In addition to building the toilets, all the necessary arrangement for sanitation such as water tanks, taps, sanitary tables, soaps and tables, sanitary pads for girls, rubbish bin have also been arranged in each school to ensure proper hyegine.

The schools, Keraunja Secondary School, Manjushree Secondary School and Icchya Basic School have appreciated PHASE's continuous efforts to support earthquake hit school in their communities. Last year PHASE has supported these schools with most essential school materials such as white board, marker pens, sports material, stationery and science lab materials.
