Students and their teachers in the rural Dolakha District of east central Nepal are enjoying great improvements to their schools, thanks to ETC and YOUR support!

For many years, ETC has been committed to improving the quality of education in Nepal. This means not only ensuring that children from impoverished families can attend school, and that teachers are well trained; it also means that classrooms and school buildings are safe, attractive places to learn.

During the past several months, we have completed the following work:

  • Toilet construction at Kalinag Higher Secondary School and Majhuwa Primary School. In addition to being important for public health, toilets give menstruating girls a place to change their sanitary cloths in private. If they do not have access to toilets at school, they often stay home for one week out of every four, and are at increased risk of dropping out altogether.
  • Painting and installing window grills at Janata Lower Secondary School and Mahadevsthan Primary School.
  • Furniture (desks, benches, round tables) provided to Tamrakoshika Lower Secondary School and Sitka Secondary School.
  • Roof maintenance at Guranse Primary School.
  • Two classrooms plastered at Lamanagi Lower Secondary School.
  • Steel cupboards for storage provided to ten schools.

Current and immediately upcoming activities include:

  • Eight school playgrounds will have new slides installed.
  • A number of schools are working with ETC to arrange for the "community contributions" (in-kind donations of labor and materials) that help make all of this work possible. For example, parents and school personnel frequently work together to install the playground equipment, or to procure the stones that are used as components of the foundation for new toilet facilities. ETC has a strong track record of obtaining these community contributions, which help ensure that the work is fully supported locally and that it is what the residents need and want to have accomplished.

Community members and school personnel have expressed great satisfaction with the work that has already been accomplished. In the coming months, we look forward to improving the educational environment for hundreds more students and teachers in rural Nepal!
