Last month a news was published and this news represents the situation in most of the remote villages of Nepal.

We would like to share this one with everyone,

https://www.nepalitimes.com/from-the-nepali-press/stuck-in-grade-5/

This is why The Small World’s school construction project are so important. We are not only providing a physical structure but we are providing a platform where life takes different road. We work to see teachers instead of child brides, leaders instead of forced child labors and individuals with vision instead of unemployed young generation.

Every schools we have finished and are planning to construct are possible only with kind support of our generous donors, humble labor contribution of community members and tireless actions of our ground staffs.

We wouldlike to express our deepest gratitude to everyone involved near and far.

Thank you

The Small World is committed to ensure all the children are in classroom and complete the full cycle of education specially girls in remote villages of solukhumbhu. We have made significant progress in delivering safe learning space by completing 20 earthquake safe classrooms and benefiting nearly 1000 students. Your generosity has paved a road to education to every one of those 1000 students. Thank you for investing in the future of Nepalese children where they can now choose their own.

Shamjana rai, who is now conitinue studying in grade 9th. she never thought that she would able to continue her education untill we build her school and support her education with sponosoring program supporting yearly $ 300. 

All our works are done in marginalized communities where people have not only lost their families and belongings by the devastating earthquake but have lost their Hope for the future. We worked shoulder to shoulder with people from these communities and as we worked together we shared stories happy and sad, tears and smiles. Now as we see those beautiful brightly colored classrooms we see hope in the eyes of community. Classrooms are not only a learning space for children but community people gather on school off time (when schools are closed) for meeting about their community issues such as development work meeting, women group, cultural program, planning anything within community all coming together in newly build school. These are the moments that brings smile on our faces and tears in our eyes and we would like to share it to each and every one of you who contributed their hard earn money to our projects.

 Almost one million children who were enrolled in school before the earthquake could now find they have no school building to return to. — Tomoo Hozumi, UNICEF’s Representative in Nepal.

However, there are still many villages across the solukhumbhu where safe learning space and community centers are huge need. Due to the lack of infrastructure and access to educational facilities thousands of children are out school. The causes of being out of school, especially for girls, are multiple and expose the children to many risks including trafficking, child bride and permanent school dropouts. We are still working hard to make it possible for every child to be in classroom and complete the full cycle of education no matter how long the road is we will walk it together.  Tons of thanks again to all of you for continue support by joining hands together supporting our work in some of most remote villages in Nepal after Nepal earthquake to Build Back Better Nepal again.

In 2015 April when the earthquake struck Muskan’s village, her life was changed. She survived the massive disaster, but her road to recovery will be a long one. Like Muskan for so many girls living in underserved Himalayan communities in Nepal, going to school is a bright spot in her life. The opportunity to learn and be with friends gives girls hope for the future and a chance at a better life. But Muskan’s school was destroyed by the earthquake and her educational dreams came crashing down.

But thanks to the tremendous generosity of donors, friends,  supporters, our ground staffs and hard working community members for saving Muskan’s education. She is back into new and safe school now. With a gentle smile Muskan described the feeling of returning to school: ‘it was if all my hopes came back.’  She was not alone, over 36,000 classrooms were destroyed leaving nearly 1 million children unable to return to school. 1045 classroom were destroyed only in the communities where The Small World is working. The odds are worse for girls, when there is no school to attend and no roof over head.

Since 2015 we have completed 20 Earthquake safe classroom constructions, nearly 1000 students are back in new safe classrooms. Now Muskan can hope for the future, hope to build better lives for themselves because she is back in school and will remain safe.  We aim to build 100 permanent and safe classrooms by 2018 to bring earthquake affected Nepal back to learning. Education must always be a priority in emergency because being in school simply means children are safe from dangers like trafficking, child labor, abuse and violence. Thank you for standing with us in this journey and we look forward to work many more years together.

Namaste!!

Dear All Supporters, Namaste ! 

On April 25, 2015 a 7.9 & May 12th with 7.3 M. earthquakes struck Nepal. The both earthquakes destroyed over 36,000 classrooms leaving nearly 1 million children unable to return to school. The Small World working communities in Solukhumbu district destroyed 1045 classroom. 

The Small World is continue working today even after two year of Nepal earthquake to replace 22 temporary learning shelter which immediately built after Nepal earthquake  into permanent earthquake resistance building design approved by Nepal government. In first year we built 15 new classroom which benefited over 1500 children directly & thousands of children over the year to come continue receiving education some of most remote Himalayan communities of Nepal, where very few other nonprofit due to the remoteness.


The Small World likes to express our deep gratitude from bottom of our heart for your huge support on behalf of hundreds of children who are in school & community member keeping their hope alive for better future again. We are also very happy to share you by building new safe classroom greatly help to reduce force child labors & girls trafficking keeping continue in school during the most crisis situation. Here we like to share our news published in National Observer in North America online about risk of trafficking during the earthquakehttp://www.nationalobserver.com/2015/05/22/news/girls-greater-risk-rape-and-sex-trafficking-after-nepal-earthquake


We feel blessing hearing many powerful stories from local community, teachers & students . Suna Maya Khaling Rai said how greatful she is having new school for  her three children  ages 5, 7 & 11.  She add ahead, if the distroyed school building was not fix, neighter her children would be in school nor able to support her at home and firms. Another 15 years old Bino Rai said, his dream to be teacher would not be come true if we could not able to support his school. 

More than these, we were telling on their eyes, smiles & seeing ourselves children studying in classroom and playing again like they already forgot about lost of lives, home & their schools. 

By the both devastating Nepal earthquake, only in The Small World working community at Solukhumbu District in Everest region over 1000 classroom were destroyed & still many children are remained out of schools. We are continuing working hard to build 10 more classrooms in this year to benefit directly over 500 children by keeping in school.

Dear all our supporters, Namaste ! Merry Christmas & Happy Holiday to all 

Thank you very much. I wanted to take the time to thank you for your generous donation to The Small World Organization. 100 percent of your donation funds were used to build new and safe school classroom in remote Himalayan community of lower Solukhumbu district to keep children in school which were destroyed by Nepal earthquake in 2015.

The Small World team has discussed with local community members, teachers, parents,students & women groups for about building new earthquake resistance school building using maximume local resorces and local labors to create job opportnity within community to support their family, provide leadership skill and project ownership for long lasting impacts. The model of our project is not just building a school but empowering local community and help them to build  their capacity to slove locally their own problem together with community members.

Now, in very first phase of our project, local community members are collecting resorces within community such as breaking stone for wall, making furniture for doors and windows, demolishing school building which are destroyed and damaged by last year Nepal earthquake, clearning project site, making foundation for new project. 

Your generous and life-giving support has greatly changed the lives of so many children and families – all of whom were in desperate straits – for the better, with education,and new schools.For this, we can only say ‘Thank You’ a thousand times over, not only for ourselves but also for all of these people who are so very grateful for a happier present and a brighter future . . . thanks to you!

And now, because of your generosity, until our project is fully funded, we will be sending you regular reports about our work. You'll know what your donation has helped fund, what accomplishments we have achieved and what our current needs are.

Because you know your friends and family best, so use your own words - tell them why you chose our project and what it means to you.
