Outdoor Learning Space for Children in Rural Nepal

Summary

This project will support our two schools & a hostel facility in two remote villages in Kalikot district in Western Nepal to buy new land & to manage the existing lands to be used as outdoor playing, learning & farming spaces for 248 students at the schools & for 30 orphans & children in need of support at the hostel facility. Consequently, the children will continue their education, enjoy outdoor learning, & feel safer & comfortable at school during these difficult times of COVID-19.

Challenge

The region which our two schools and a hostel facility serve is one of the most remote and least developed in Nepal. Because of COVID-19 risk, teaching in a classroom setting for a long period is scary and boring. As the children do not have access to internet, TV, or even radio, children are falling behind in education. Furthermore, our 30 hostel children lack enough space to enjoy different outdoor activities and games to remain engaged when school is not in session because of the pandemic.

Solution

This project will support our two schools and a hostel facility in rural Nepal to buy new land and maintain the existing spaces for outdoor learning and playing. The new land will have farms, which will make the children engaged, & will also solve food scarcity at the hostel during the lockdown. Maintaining the existing spaces with artificial grass, play stations & necessary equipment will excite the students about outdoor learning. The hostel children will also be happier & more involved.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of the project is to promote outdoor learning and play among the children in the most remote villages in Nepal. The children will be more excited to go to school and be involved in activities that are more fun. Also, outdoor learning activities will teach students some practical skills related to agriculture, gardening, and other sectors relevant to the local rural context. Ultimately, the children will enjoy learning, have improved learning outcomes & love coming to school.
