Summary

ECCA initiated School Environment Improvement Program in the year 2000. Experience has shown that enrollment of students increases and is maintained when facilities (toilets, water, greenery) are improved. Training teachers is also required to effectively manage the classrooms, develop positive relationship with children and community, and facilitate curriculum that leads to better knowledge of sustainable living. A common vision for the development of school is also required.

Challenge

Due to lack of proper facilities in the school, students lack the motivation / interest to come to school daily. Because of which, many students (especially girl students who reach puberty) drop-out from school. Also, lack of proper toilet and water facilities contributes toward spreading of water borne diseases. Many classrooms and other school facilities were damaged during earthquake of 25 April and 12 May, 2015, due to which many children are still studying in temporary classrooms.

Solution

Physical facilities of schools will be improved and the teachers trained. During the process, school management committee, parents and the local community will be mobilized. In addition to school beautification, managing open space by planting local herbs will allow children to experience firsthand the process of planting and tending a garden as well as their medicinal values.

Long-Term Impact

The school / community is seeking support to help them improve the standards of their schools' facilities and the provision of quality education so they might not only cope with the rise in student population, but also gain the knowledge and skills to empower them to take charge of their own future. The project will benefit the overall education system and will contribute toward achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 on "Quality Education".
