Summary

This project will provide salaries to 7 teachers and education training in 5 different public primary schools of Dhanushadham, an extremely impoverished area in terms of quality education and exposure. Depending on a child's involvement and parents' engagement in education, the project will also provide seed funds to mothers seeking to establish their own revenues of income. Our mission is to promote quality education in Nepal, all the while promoting financial independence for women.

Challenge

In general, the quality of education is very low in the community schools in Nepal. The situation is much worse in the case of some of the districts in Madhesh. For instance, the student teacher ratio in Dhanushadham district is 62:1, with only 12% of students enrolling into secondary level of education. The problem is further compounded by low level of girls' enrollment, early marriage among girls, and lower level of mothers' literacy and participation in income generating activities.

Solution

To address this problem, we have recruited 7 teachers in 5 public primary schools of Dhanushadham. We have provided them 2 trainings on activity based teaching so that they can directly impact in the lives of the children, with further elaborate trainings planned for 2018/19. To sustain education, we are providing seed funds to the mothers based on their child's school attendance and assignments, and the parents' involvement in their education, creating new sources of income for the families.

Long-Term Impact

This initiative will educate 366 children from 300 households in the area in a year. It is also expected to increase school enrollment of girls by 60% and 100% in one of the Dalit Communities. The seed fund provided will act as a catalyst to increase financial independence among mothers, while encouraging them to support their children's education, all the while holding the teachers involved accountable in providing quality teaching and support to the students.
