Seasonal Greetings to all our donors, well-wishers and supporters from ECCA, Nepal.
I feel privileged to inform you all that, with all your moral support and financial support, we have now formally initiated our Mirge School Environment Improvement Program through launching a Youth Training Program and a Children Training Program from the beginning of June 2011. As a step towards achieving the vision of improving school environment in all the schools of Mirge VDC, we had started our program through launching youth training programs and students training programs mainly in two schools – Majhgau Lower Secondary School and Kalidhunga Higher Secondary School.
The first youth training program cum workshop was organized at Charikot, Dolkha from 3rd – 5th of June in which local youths, school teachers, members from school management committee and representative from VDC’s were invited. The training workshop was highly focused towards developing a common vision for school of all the stakeholders who are directly involved with the welfare of the school. During the workshop, all the participants agreed the common vision for both the schools as follows;
Kalidhunga Higher Secondary School – “To become a model school of Dolkha, which is recognized for providing quality and practical education for the students”
Majhgau Lower Secondary School – "To become a model school in Dolkha, which is recognize as child friendly school, where quality education for students are taught through a various measures of child friendly educational techniques".
To accomplish the vision being created for their school, the participants had also prepared an action plan to be implemented through support from government organization and non-government organization by the end of the workshop.
As students are the integral part of school family, providing knowledge to them about the need and importance of school environment is necessary. Hence, a four-day conservation awareness camp was organized for 18 students of both the schools from 8th to 11th June 2011. The camp was focused on making the students aware about different environmental issues and skill development issues. A students Nature Club was established in both the schools and action plan were formulated by the executive committee members formed after the camp. The students seems to be very energetic towards implementing the action plan in their school where they had planned for different environmental programs for their school and community as well as different skill development programs to increase the skills of the students.
A copy of report and link to the photographs of youth training program as well as students program is attached with this report.
I would like to express my gratitude towards all our donors and supporters for the program as well as the GlobalGiving team for your continuous backup. We anticipate for the same kind of cooperation and support in the days coming ahead as well as seek your suggestion and guidance for the productive outcome regarding the program in future.
