Supporting our families and students

Students know the importance of washing hands
Students know the importance of washing hands

A lot has changed since we last spoke to you. We first would like to express our well wishes to you and your loved ones during this unusual time. Our thoughts are with you all! Our daily lives have changed massively here in the UK but also for our friends in Nepal. Our Schools in Nepal have all closed and lockdown is in place as the government responds to reducing the spread of Coronavirus.

We have been in regular contact with all of our student’s families and checking up how they are doing. Our teachers and Nepali programme manager have spoken all of the families to see how they are managing. Many of the students families have expressed their concern as they are low on food and soap as well as many families having experienced job losses. This is a scary time for both the students and their parents but they are a resilient community - as they proved so well after the Earthquakes in 2015. With cases confirmed in Kushadevi now they know what they are dealing with and are following the Lockdown rules.

Freedom to Learn have set up an emergency fund in response to the feedback from families. We are working to ensure that all our families have access to food, soap and educational resources for the children. The response we have experienced from this has been incredible. We have been especially amazed by Milford-on-Sea Primary School who have taken on the 2.6 challenge and managed to raise just over £1800! All of this money raised is being used directly for the families we work with to reduce the pressures that they are experiencing that has come with Lockdown. 

Thank you for supporting Freedom to Learn. We are working hard to support all of our families and students during this time.
