100% Percent School Enrolment

NVF is working in partnership with Hamro Samaj Nepal for the Girls’ Education Project. The project is running in three village panchayats (Bhagawatpur, Mahadewa and Bathanaha). 3,000 families live in the panchayats with a population of just over 21,000.

We are supporting 101 girls to retrieve a formal education in these panchayats. Fourteen volunteers and one full-time project assistant is monitoring the girls to ensure that they go to school regularly.

You will be pleased to hear that 100% school enrolment has been achieved in the panchayats. It took five years of hard work, strong commitment and generous support from people across the world.

School attendance of girls in these panchayats is below 50% on average, and quality of teaching is very poor. Despite that, school attendance of the 101 girls is 80% and above. Now we aim for 90% and above over the next two years. We will also work on to improve the quality of teaching in the local schools.

Summer uniform was provided in this quarter, including of trouser, shirt, scarf, scandals and school bag to all the 101 girls. Uniform materials were purchased from a nearby wholesaler and contracted with three family tailors in the villages to stitch the uniform. The girls had a five weeks’ summer school holiday which was perfect for measuring their uniform sizes. Now, they are exposing their new uniform in school.

The new school of twenty-one girls in the scheme is far to walk so we decided to provide a bicycle. Six of the girls (Renu, Ruby, Lilam, Kabita, Nirmala and Pooja) urgently needs a bicycle. As we have raised enough funds to buy six bicycles, the girls will have a bicycle by the end of this week.

Annual cost to run the Girls’ Education Project is £5,200 excluding of the bicycle scheme, and so far, total £3,420 has been raised in this year including of online and offline. The remaining of £1,780 is needed to fund the project fully for the year.

Please sponsor a girl today. It costs only £50 to keep a girl in school for a year, providing uniform, study materials and support.

Similarly, a bicycle costs £60 in Nepal, and it enables the girl to attend school regularly leading to completion of secondary schooling. For your information, donor’s name will be written on the bicycles and a photo will be sent to the donor.
