Summary

Since the earthquake in 2015 we have been supporting rural schools through a range of interventions. Initially we were rebuilding classrooms and providing taps and toilets. This expanded to include educational bursaries, teacher training, libraries and anti-trafficking workshops. It is a little known fact that children who attend school regularly are far less likely to be trafficked. Help us to stamp out the sale and exploitation of children in Nepal through our school improvement programme.

Challenge

Since 1999, Child Rescue Nepal has been rescuing children from physical and emotional abuse in circuses, factories, restaurants, and construction sites. We have rescued over 850 children and reunited the majority with their families. However preventing children from being trafficked is much better, and far more cost-effective. It is a little know fact that children attending school regularly are far less likely to be trafficked - so our interventions are designed to reduce drop out rates.

Solution

Our "Safe in School" programme is aimed at rural schools in the district of Makwanpur where classrooms are sparse, teaching is by rote and there is often no running water. Our interventions include teacher training, classroom equipment, libraries, toilets, taps and educational bursaries for poorer children. Evidence shows that schools where we have delivered these programmes have seen an average increase in attendance of 13% for girls and 15% for boys.

Long-Term Impact

By increasing school attendance rates we will not only keep children safe from traffickers - we will also be contributing to their education. The Girl Effect (2016) reports that each additional year of primary education boosts a girl's future wages between 10 and 20%, whilst each additional year of secondary school adds to her income by 15 to 25%.
