PHASE Nepal health staff successfully saved the life of a mother and her newly born baby on the her to the primary health care centre in Kolti, Bajura last month.The emergency support was provided on the walking trail midway between Kotila village and Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC), Kolti. When Manisha Miya a young mother of 21 felt labour pain while working on her wheat farm, she rushed home. 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.

3 New Gender Friendly School Toilets in Gorkha

PHASE Nepal has sucessfully completed the rebuilding of school toilets of two secondary schools and one basic (lower secondary ) school which were damaged after the earthquake. These schools lie in Kashigaun and Keruanja Villages, two of the remote and highly affected villages during the 2015 earthquake owing to their proximity to the epicentre in Gorkha.

These gender friendly toilets have two seperate blocks for boys and girls. The buildings were made based on the stadard design approved by Nepal Government. 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.

The school child clubs of each schools have been given responsibility of managing regular cleanliness of these toilets.

" I am hopeful that the provision of clean and gender friendly toilets will make children feel safe and comfortable in the school. I am also hopeful that the girls student will be more regular in the school even during the menstruation."

Enhancing Schools with New Technology in the Remote

To supplement its teacher training programme, PHASE has also been supporting basic learning materials and classroom setup materials such as white boards, flooring, furniture , visual charts etc to upgrade the schools in its project areas.

During this course, PHASE has established a first ever computer lab in the only secondary school in the remote village of Keraunja, North Gorkha.

Keraunja lies at a two day walking distance from the nearest road access and is highly deprived in health, education and livelihood opportunites. In addition, the area was hugely affected by the 2015 earthquake. PHASE has been supporting the community with its integrated project to enhance health services, school education and income generation in the people.

The new computer lab which only has now 5 computers from PHASE's support is first of its kind in the village. Although it is not sufficient, it is good start to provide the ethnic gurung children with an opportunity to experience computer technology. Government of Nepal curriculum has computer education as compulsory subject in the schools but the children from remote project areas of PHASE have seen a computer only in the pictures of their books. Everyone in the village is excited about learning computer in the school. This initiative was taken after identifying few computer literate youth teachers in the schools who could lead the class, based on the government curriculum. PHASE decided to buy and support these computers with the funds from its educatio project after receiving numerous requests by the school managment and the new local ward government. The lab is being set up and will be fully operational from the third week of May.

"The new computer lab will definitely make the children from our remote community, digital literate and make them ready for this new age."
