Summary of the report

Nepal Village Foundation (NVF) has been promoting girls’ education project since 2009 in rural villages of Nepal (Bhagawatpur). Due to lack of resources and capacity in our partner organisation (Hamro Samaj Nepal), we have been unable to accelerate our project activities. The recent project visit turned out to be very productive and the capacity is also improving. These improvements indicate that the project activities should be taken to the next level to make a greater impact on the community. What was the experience from the visit, what actions were taken, why and how things will move forward? These all are highlighted in this report. The project activities have expanded to three village panchayats now, and over ninety girls who are in most need of an education will be supported. Until now, we have been supporting only twenty five girls from one village panchayat.

Our target is to bring every child into regular schooling from the villages over the next three years. There are twelve small villages in the three village panchayats and to ensure that target is achieved, we have a local village representative in each village. The representative will monitor pupils in their village closely and report to the project assistant who has been hired recently. The project assistant will monitor attendance of all students from school attendance record as well and make regular visits to the villages where necessary. The project assistant will also report to NVF on regular basis which will enable NVF to see what is happening from the UK. School teachers are also supportive because more pupils means a greater income for their schools. But school’s infrastructures are in dire need of repair and need some investment. Figure 4 and 5 gives some ideas about condition of schools in the villages.

Summary of the Report

This progress report reports on the main activities that were carried out in the year and are related to the girls’ education project. It does, by briefly highlighting the importance of the project, its location and aims and objectives. Thirty six girls are in school through this project in this year. Some of them are directly through the girls’ education support scheme and some are through the awareness raising activities. This project is playing a significant role for the advancement of girls’ education in the village and these are highlighted in page five of this report. £30 brings a girl in schooling for a year in this context. So considering all the benefits to educate a girl, investing in girls’ education is one of the best long term investments for a society.

NVF organised a 14km (Greenwich to the London eye) sponsored Thames Walk on Saturday the 15th of June 2013 to raise funds for the above project. The Walk was dedicated to GlobalGiving June Gateway Challenge and NVF is the first organisation amongst the 37 participating organisations to secure the threshold of the challenge. 18 walkers were participated in the walk and all together we have risen over £1200 pounds. Pam Miller is the top fundraiser. Krit Sharma guided the Walk and Rob Stead was photographer. Each Walker received a ‘certificate of completion’ signed by Dr Suresh Chandra Chalise (chief of mission, Nepalese ambassador to the UK) and Carole Sharma (chair of Nepal Village Foundation). Every Walker said ‘I have enjoyed the walk, had lovely day and I am happy to walk again for such a good cause’. Feedback from the walkers is included in the report at the end.
