Contemplating in the classroom
Our project coordinator, Lila Jung Gurung, has conducted an evaluation of our first academic year:
• All 25 of our first-grade students passed the government’s final exam in March
• Student attendance reached 91% between January and March
• Teachers have requested we add a 4th teacher since we added a Grade 2 class
• Parents are satisfied with their children’s reading, writing and speaking skills
GOVERNMENT OFFERS FINANCIAL SUPPORT
The government in Nepal has awarded our school with an annual stipend, based on our enrollment, of about $1,200 -- about the cost of one teacher salary for a year. This support signals the government’s intention to fully fund all of our teachers’ salaries next year.
Thanks to all of you for helping to make it possible!
