PHASE Nepal now has over a decade of experience of improving access and of quality primary health services in the remote villages through its continuous support to Government Health Posts with qualified and trained staff ; free medicine and a variety of health awareness programmes. "It is a 'model' project replicable for other I/NGO in Nepal", as evaluated by the Social Welfare Council of Nepal in 2016. 

In the last four months, over 30,000 patients including 17,604 women received primary healthcare services from PHASE Supported Health Posts in 22 remote villages in 6 Mountainous Districts of Nepal.

Our village-based dedicated health staff provide timely services to several sensitive cases from the PHASE supported clinics. A mother (aged 28) from Maila, Humla appreciated PHASE health services in the following words.

"As soon as my labour pains started my family took me to the Health Post. I met the PHASE sisters there. Following the suggestions I had got during their door to door awareness campaign, I visited health post the about five times during my pregnancy. The PHASE sisters conducted a safe delivery of my twin son and daughter. They said everything went well because I took good care of myself during my pregnancy as suggested by them. My son and daughter are both healthy. I really appreciate the service of PHASE Nepal in my village."

Professional help is particularly important during twin births, as complications for both babies and mother are much more frequent in these cases.

Since the massive earthquake of 2015 in Nepal, PHASE Nepal has been working on immediate relief as well as long term recovery in some of the mostly affected areas. In this report, updates from some of the ongoing and recently completed reconstruction projects will be discussed.

  1. New Health Post buildings in Kashigaun and Keraunja (Gorkha)

PHASE Nepal has recently completed the reconstruction of two healthpost buildings, one each in Kashigaun and Keraunja of Gorkha. These new earthquake safe buildings were also equipped with all the necessary furniture and clinical materials before they were handed over to the community. In addition, PHASE has been placing additional medical staff in the villages who are providing day to day clinical services as well as community awareness events in both of the villages. Before the rebuilding, health services were being provided from temporary shelters.

"I really appreciate PHASE's efforts to bring back fully functional health services in the village."

says Lekha Rai, a government nurse in Keraunja.

These two villages lie in the northern terrain of Gorkha district with no access to motorable roads. It takes two days of walk from these villages to reach the nearest road and access the public transportation. After being completely destroyed in the earthquake, public infrastructure and individual houses are still in the process of rebuilding. The construction materials for rebuilding have to be transported to the respective locations by mules and local porters.

  1. Rebuilding 2 highschools and a healthpost and an outreach clinic in Hagam (Sindhupalchok)

As a part of our earthquake recovery project, PHASE Nepal is rebuilding two high schools, a healthpost and an outreach clinic in Hagam, Sindhupalchok. Hagam village was very severely affected by the earthquake. From its post-earthquake projects PHASE Nepal has already rebuilt and handed over 22 drinking water supply projects in the village.

PHASE Nepal had already been working in these areas for almost a decade with its integrated development projects improving health, education and livelihood opportunities of the locals before the earthquake. This presence has facilitated the timely completion of the reconstruction projects via remarkable public participation and support.

12 Model Classrooms in Remote Schools of Bajura

As part of our Teacher Training Programme, PHASE upgrades and improves the situation of the deprived school classrooms in addition to providing training to the teachers. With this intention PHASE has created 12 model classrooms in each of the 12 rural schools in Kolti Village of Bajura.

During the process PHASE worked on strengthening students groups, teachers groups and school management first and then gave the responsibilities to them to decide what they would actually want in their class rooms to make them a model. PHASE-trained Mentor teachers were given responsibility to lead such discussions. 

This participatory method bore good results. The School Management Committee of one of the schools, Budhinanda Primary School Kolti, worked really fast on deciding the looks and content of their model class in their school. PHASE set up a first model class in their school last November, the first piloted model classroom in the whole village.

This provided guidance to the other school management committees who also started to have meetings and set up model classroom in their schools too. This was the main goal of the PHASE project, people deciding for their own development. PHASE Nepal kept on providing them necessary support, guidance and orientation. Slower school management committees were encouraged by peer pressure from more effective ones.

After that, PHASE received request letters from all the remaining 11 schools of the village. The letters were analyzed and the necessary materials were purchased and sent to the village. Once the materials were handed to the schools, refresher trainings were provided to the teachers to guide them for the proper usage of visual aids, math aids and other teaching materials.

Now all the 12 schools of Kolti have well maintained model classrooms in their schools with all the necessary learning materials, visual aids, and science and sports materials. These classrooms have provided trained teachers with the necessary resources and ambience to use the Best Teaching Practices they have learned in the PHASE teacher training.

"I am glad that my teachers do not complain about teaching materials now. They are trained and now they have resources from the model school. I am grateful to PHASE Nepal and hope this kind of support continues."
