Educational Supplies for Flood Impacted Students

by Shanti Education Initiative Nepal
Educational Supplies for Flood Impacted Students

We have been receiving calls on a regular basis from the Flood affected region of Nepal for help. Parents and local people tell us that the children are reluctant to go back to schools after the floods as they don't have the necessary books, notebooks, and stationaries. updating  

We shall be updating about the project to all the donors and wellwishers on a regular basis along with Photos, Videos, and reports.

We feel that it is important for us all to send the children back to school on a regular basis to learn. The huge percentage of the population are children who are more vulnerable to disasters.

We sincerely request all the generous Hands to support the cause because the children out there need our help.

Help. Help. Help.

We are still waiting to receive support so that we can spring into action to help the flood affected children in southern Nepal.

The flood made a huge devastation in southern Nepal, basically called the TERAI. but the most vulnerable masse were the school going children. they lost their homes, clothes and also their books. When they returned their homes after the water level became low,they found out they their books and notebooks and other supplies were all washed away, if not, damaged.

So we planned to support those children with the school supplies so as to ease the trauma state of the children.

We are NOT being able to support them due to low funding. We are still raising funds.

We, therefore, request all the generous people around the world to help us to support the flood-affected children in Southern Terai of Nepal.

Shanti Education Initiative (SEI) Nepal mobilizes national and international volunteers in different public schools of Nepal to assist them to create English Speaking environment and promote extra-curricular activities for quality education. Mobilization of volunteer for teaching English Program in Nepal is an enjoyable and satisfying experience where the volunteers get an opportunity to teach the students who are eager to improve their conversational English skills. Besides, they also support in other school activities such as sports and other extra-curricular projects.

As part of our Volunteer Mobilization Program, recently we placed Samikshya Shiwakoti, a student of Agnes Scott College, Georgia, and USA in Shringery Community Secondary School. She conducted different extra-curricular activities, taught about creative arts, etc. to the students of different grades.

 

Her experience in her own words:

I was assigned to work as a volunteer at Shringery Community Secondary School located at Lamatar village in Lalitpur Nepal. For the first two weeks I engaged them in games, singing, dancing and other activities. Most of my time was spent on giving dance lessons. This not only helped me to connect with the students but also with the school staffs and their parents.

During my stay, I also organized financial literacy workshops for the children and distributed storybooks to the students of grade six to ten. I organized essay and drawing competitions to test their knowledge on aspects of saving money and utilizing it in a prudent manner. The children really enjoyed the competitions as they were able to use their creativity and imagination. During the finals days of my internship, I showed them five episodes of ‘MeriBassai’ to the children as well as teachers that highlighted the importance of financial literacy in an entertaining manner. Beside these, the group participated in the discussions of economy with lots of enthusiasm. I was also able to make a donation of $500 for library setup.

On the last day of my stay, the children organized a farewell program for me and performed songs and dances. The school administration as well as the students and teachers were all very thankful for my service and were extremely grateful for the financial contribution. I also received many gifts from my students which included handmade items made with a lot of time and effort. As the children bid me farewell with eyes full of tears, I realized that I had been able to make a place in their hearts and I would miss them very much. Being a part of the process in my own small way by helping young children at the school has given me a great opportunity to provide service to my countrymen and make memories that I will cherish forever.

Thank you all for your kind support.

Education is considered as foundation of development and basic human right.Many Children, specially in the plains of Southern Nepal face severe flooding every year. In many cases, the children are the most vulnerable human masse during the natural disasters in the World.

During the floods, many children lost their school books, note books and other learning materials.First they flee to save their lives.Most of the people take refuse at the schools as the school buildings are relatively big and strong. While they spend their transitional lives, they need to do something to spend days. Childrens books are the gretest help to these affected children to overcome the trauma from the disaster.

We are trying to help these kids by providing school materials and children's books to continue their learning.

Sadly, We have NOT received adequate funding yet. However, We have dispatched some 250 books that we collected from our friends to Paradise Academy of Sarlahi District.

We hope to raise more funds to buy them school books and note books.

 

Your HELP is URGENTLY needed.Please help us to help the Needy children.
