PHASE Nepal has successfully supported 181 out of children in gaining and retaining access to schools in coordination with local schools, district education office and the local government with a series of trainings, social mobilizing and logistic support in Humla. The supported children are the residents of Maila, Melchham and Jair villages of extremely remote and mountaneous district of Humla in Mid Western region of Nepal.

These villages are reachable only on foot by walking at least 3 days from the nearest road access in Bajura District or Mugu District. Humla District itself does not have a road access and the only access to its headquarter Simikot is by mountain flights or at least 5 days of walk from Mugu or Bajura.

When this education project was designed it was estimated that about 120 children would be out of school in PHASE Project villages, Maila, Melchham and Jair. After the actual survey was conducted, 181 dropouts were identified and verified by the local authority revealing a more disadvantageous situation of children in the region.

A summary of project activities adapted to bring these children back to school is presented below. 

Logistics Support to the children

Throughout the project period, the children were provided with essential logistic materials such as exercise books, school bags, pencils, pens, erasers and mathematics instrument box in the installment of 6 months. The parents were also communicated accordingly. PHASE Local mobilisers and EDF Anita Acharya monitored the attendance of the children in co-operation with the School Principals.

This proved to be a very effective strategy and all the children to came to school regularly. After getting all the necessary school supplies for their children, the parents felt less burdened and the children felt motivated.

In Humla where everything has to be carried by either mules or porters, everything is of high value. The provide materials were found to be used with good care.

Follow up visits at School and at Homes

PHASE EDF and Local mobilizers regularly followed up with the parents and students at homes and with students and teachers at schools to ensure regular attendance, to motivate children and to motivate parents. Parents were regularly oriented about the importance of education and how useful it is, for the future of their children. These efforts eventually started garnering increased awareness level and commitment from Parents to send children to schools.

Improving School Environment- Training Teachers and improving classrooms

 To support this back to school children with better school environment, PHASE provided training and basic material support to the teachers and schools of the project to upgrade elementary classrooms.

Training on Child Friendly Learning Environment

 114 teachers of the project villages teachers took part in different sessions of child friendly education training. In these training the teachers learned about the following skills :

  • Positive discipline
  • Child centered interactive teaching
  • Proper usage of provided teaching learning materials
  • Gender sensitive classrooms
  • Collaborative Learning work in the classrooms 

This fiscal year 2017/18 PHASE was successful in supporting 43 different mountainous schools with training, classroom upgrading and supporting school retention with the support from several international partners and individual donors.
