Waste segregation bins were supported in Shree Siddheshwor Secondary School located in Tamakoshi Rural Municipality-4, Dolakha district (around 150 km north of Kathmandu in central Nepal). Altogether 6 big fabric dustbins for school premise, 22 PVC dustbins for classrooms (separate dustbins for degradable and non-degradable waste for each class), 11 brooms and 11 dust pans were provided. The objective of providing these materials was to make the students aware about the importance of WASH and sanitation materials, which would help to improve WASH behavior in students. During the hand over program, the teachers and students were oriented on how to manage the waste.

Supriya, a tenth grade student, shared “A large volume of waste used to be generated in our school. The problem of waste segregation, waste burning, and littering practices was very common. But the situation is changing now after what we learned from ECCA. We are now focusing on reducing the volume of waste produced and on providing the much-needed awareness in waste management among students and teachers. We have the responsibility to help in maintaining the appearance of the school by keeping the area clean, for which we now always use indoor and outdoor dustbins for waste collection. This has also helped to keep the school environment clean and beautiful, which has made the school coming very charming for the students. We are very thankful for the support”.

We thank you for your continued support.

Janajyoti Basic School, located in Buddhashanti Rural Municipality-5, Jhapa, Nepal approached ECCA for the construction of false ceiling in one of the school’s three-room building. The students were facing the problem of excessive heat inside classroom during summer due to metal roofing, since long time.

Now after the construction, the false ceiling has helped reduce the effect of heat from the roof, does not produce noise during rain, and has given a good appearance to the classroom.

“The students and teachers used to endure up to 40 degree Celsius during summer under zinc sheet roof. We requested the concerned authorities for help time and again, but there was no positive response. We thank ECCA for approving our proposal’’ a teacher said. The school is providing education to around 150 children.

We thank you for your support.

Shree Janajyoti Secondary School is located in Janagal, Banepa-10, Kavrepalanchok district, Nepal. Community Drinking Water Project constructed an intake at a surface water source located uphill (around 600 meter from school). At the intake, this project allocated one connection outlet (of half inch diameter) for the school. Underground cement tank (20,000 liter capacity) was also constructed at the school premises from the government fund. However, due to shortage of fund, pipe connection from the water source intake to the school’s underground tank was pending, for which the school approached ECCA for the support. ECCA supported for the pipe purchase and labor (to lay the pipe).

The work is in progress. After completion of the works, the school will have sufficient water, thereby improving the school environment.

We thank you for your support.

So as to provide better facilities for the school students, separate child friendly hand washing station and drinking water station were constructed at Shree Shikshya Vikash Secondary School, Letang, Morang (in east Nepal). These facilities benefitted 655 students (305 boys and 350 girls).

Water tank containing treated drinking water was connected to the drinking water station through a separate plumbing-piping system. The height of tap at the drinking water station was kept at different levels for easy reach of students of lower class.

School teacher Mr. Devi Prasad thanked ECCA and the donor agency for the support, and shared that the students were very excited to use such child friendly facilities.

The present COVID-19 pandemic has affected the regular studies in the schools. Though online classes are held in the city, such facility is not available in rural areas (due to unavailability of internet access and poor economic condition of the family). In these rural areas, physical presence class is the only option.

ECCA supported Deurali Secondary School, Thani Basic School, Sitadevi Secondary School and Ram Secondary School located in the rural villages of Dhankuta district (in eastern Nepal) with COVID-19 prevention materials. All together 500 liters of chlorine solution (a disinfectant, branded as WATASOL), 600 face masks (washable), 4 boxes gloves, 300 hand washing soaps and 4 spray bottles were equally distributed to these four schools. This has helped to make the schools safe from COVID-19, making it possible for students to come and study.

Mr. Purna, teacher of Deurali Secondary School shared, “The support received from ECCA will contribute to avoid students' and school staffs’ exposure to COVID-19 infection. Due to shortage of fund and such materials, we were facing difficulty. We can now continue disinfection as well as practice personal hygiene and operate regular class. Thank you so much, ECCA, for considering our request.”

We are also thankful for your support.
