Sharing about the project objectives
All of us here at Language Development Center Nepal are very pleased with the progress we have achieved with your support. Here is an update from the work taking place in Panchthar District, with the Limbu community.
We had very productive conversations and meetings with three different Limbu communities to select working areas and to introduce the project to the community. Communities agreed to form 3 women's groups and identify literacy class facilitators within August 2011. Project staff will be in touch with local communities to encourage them to continue group activities. We anticipate about 130 -150 women will be actively involve in this program. The number will increase if we able to provide more support on income generation activities.
Here it is still monsoon, which means there are heavy rains and travel is difficult, so the community decided to begins the functional literacy class from second week of September 2011. Before that facilitators are will be trained how to develop teaching learning materials and use to it literacy classes.
Literacy classes and community groups are already running successfully in Dang District, in the Tharu community, where the first distribution of baby goats has already taken place. Look for an update about that work shortly.
