Progress Report Feb 2018

Police visit to the parents
Police visit to the parents

First of all, many thanks to those who donated generously to the GivingTuesday. It was a good fundraising event and, the next fundraising event is on Sunday the 20th of May.  We will walk the 10k for Nepal in London and then enjoy home-cooked delicious curries. You are kindly invited to participate in the event and sponsor the walkers.

You will be pleased to know that we have started to provide the educational support to nine more girls from this January. The girls are from the poorest and Dalit families, and the support will enable them to retrieve a formal education. The support will be continuous until the girls completed the grade ten. Then, the girls will be encouraged to enrol in our higher education scheme which is currently being developed. The scheme aims to produce more educated and capable women in the community from the disadvantaged families.

In the quarter, we provided 427 Notebooks and 264 pens to 106 girls in the scheme. Similarly, we have provided 106 sweaters, long socks, winter hats and sandals as part of the winter uniform. Fourteen girls from the scheme are behind in study, so we are providing an extra tuition class to them.

The school attendance of the girls in this quarter is not satisfactory. Only 37 girls have school attendance above the requirement, 44 girls have between 50% and 74% of the school days, and 16 girls have below 50%. It seems that the local and general elections, farming season and the bad weather are the main reasons for the unsatisfactory result. The staff and volunteers are instructed to spend more time with the girls and the families in this quarter to maintain the expectation.

Despite the agreement with parents, ten girls from the scheme are frequently absent from schooling. It is because they are forced to work in the field, being used in domestic-work and being forced into teenage marriage. We have given several warnings to the parents, but it was ignored. So, we had to call help from the police. The staff visited the parents with two police officers to resolve the issues. The visit was very effective and now, we are hopeful that the girls’ schooling will not be disrupted in the future.

We are committed to ensuring all the girls in the scheme will complete their schooling no matter what it takes and, we need your continuous support to mate it happen. So please, make a regular donation of whatever amount you can afford to the project.
