All the seventy five girls in the scheme have received their study materials, school bag, shoes and summer uniform. They are all excited to start/continue their school but the long summer school holiday in Nepal is holding them back. It is also monsoon season now in Nepal and heavy rain floods all roads and even classrooms and houses.
During this school holiday, the girls have lots homework to do and if they didn’t then they will fall behind in their class. But their parents are uneducated and they are unable to help them. So, Sunita, the project assistant has been trying to organise at least one class a week to help them with homework. She has been successful to organise few classes but it is very challenging as the roads are inaccessible due to flooding.
What we have learnt from this is that we need to hire a teacher in each village during the school holidays so the girls do not have to travel far if they need help. But this increases the project budget and more support is needed. However the cost is not huge. If only five of our supporters participate in the ‘coffee a week’ challenge then this would be sufficient. Please visit our website for how to participate in the challenge.
