Summary

Working with the Rotary Club of the Himalayan Gurkhas to provide sanitation in 7 schools (we helped rebuild one in 2016/17 after earthquakes); and to educate teachers in 8 schools to help over 3000 children, also teachers. The new facilities will greatly improve the attendance at school and will achieve health outcomes. The Early Learning Program will provide teacher training and improved learning environments that serve as models for the area. Improvement of teaching skills will help others.

Challenge

The schools have no or inadequate toilet facilities at present which means the children are encouraged not to drink before lunchtime and the girls do not attend school if they are menstruating. There are no hand washing facilities although there is a water supply to the village. The current facilities are extremely primitive and not fit for purpose. The teachers use old methods of teaching and many have little or no training at all. Training in health and hygiene is quite low. No help provided.

Solution

The building of the new toilets will improve the situation tremendously. The children and community will find the facilities extremely beneficial and there will be less illness. The facilities will mean that all children can attend school, especially young girls. They will be taught the correct hygiene procedures. The re-education of the teachers will support better ways of learning and provide an immediate result with the younger children at an early stage of their education and lives.

Long-Term Impact

New teaching methods will bring a big improvement and leave a legacy of appropriate teaching skills which will help benefit themselves and successive generations of children. Likely to benefit many thousands. This will to help them out of poverty as they learn from more modern ways and can go on to educate others. The children want to go to school but currently find it difficult with these limited and dangerous toilets. It will inspire them now and in the future.
