Together during the crisis of COVID-19!

We are in this together!
We are in this together!

Nepal went into lockdown on March 24, 2020 to halt the spread of the COVID-19. The nationwide lockdown led to complete restrictions in movements, closure of educational institutions and everyone staying home. 

Our girls shared that they felt anxious during the initial days of the lockdown considering the uncertainity of the situation.Less was known about the disease  with many rumors and myths spreading in the villages of Kharanitar. The girls took up the roles of  informing  about the disease in their families and in their communities. Sharmila( name changed) shares" I quite didnt know about the disease but being the one who could use internet  in the phone I googled and looked up information on COVID-19. I think I was able to teach about the correct steps of handwashing to my family members."

Kharanitar like many villages of Nepal has only children and women living there. Men often travel to the capital or the gulf countries looking for jobs. Many migrant workers returned home during the lockdown as they feared their safety in the capital. 

Shristi ( name changed)  shares" My father used to come home only on Dashain( a major festival in Nepal) but the lockdown  gave us more time with him." Though they were enjoying the lockdown initially but now they are worried about their education. The private institutions have started online classes but majority of them are  enrolled in government institutions and some even studying in Kathmandu which has completely stopped any form of learning since the lockdown. 

Brinda ( Name Changesd) shares- I am worried about my studies and my future.A year delay in my studies will have a large impact in the future I have dreamt of."

A lot of challenges lie ahead in the lives of the girls as the cases have been soaring up everyday. However, collectively they have been keeping touch and providing support to one another. Though, they are not able to meet eachother everyday but have been constantly checking up on eachother through the use of social media.
