The pandemic spread of Novel Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has significantly disrupted every aspects of human life, including education. The alarming spread of the corona virus caused a havoc in the educational system forcing educational institutions to shut down. According to a UNESCO report, 1.6 billion children across 191 countries have been severely impacted by the temporary closure of the educational institutions.
As the consequence of the lockdowns, schools and universities in Nepal have been temporarily closed for plus 3 months now. As of the second week of May 2020, UNESCO (2020) estimates that nearly nine million (8,796,624) students in Nepal are affected due to school/university closures in response to the pandemic. Out of this number, 958, 127 (11%) are in pre-primary, 2,466,570 (28%) are in primary, 3,463,763 (39%) are in secondary and 404,718 (5%) are in tertiary education. Because of the compulsory closure of schools and universities for a considerable period of time, the education system has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning whereby teaching and learning is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms. However, there are many challenges around equitable access to e-learning, who are living in remote areas and don't have internet and other services.
The SEE result has been postponed several time due to the corona pandemic. The education ministry of Nepal decided and relayed the order to all the educational institutions to complete the mark-sheet of each student according to his/her performance of grade 9 and 10. Now, all the educational institution is preparing the SEE result, hope we will able to see the result soon. Still all people are in confusion, what after SEE result? How to get admission? How to join e-learning, how to buy educational stuffs? May be government of Nepal will develop the tools for admission, e-learning and other educational stuffs but girls of this project are from hill side where electricity supply has been connected but rarely have electricity and no internet excess. Due to the disturbance of electricity and lack of internet more girls won't involve into the e-classes.
From the installments received from GG, we are in-line to select 18 girls of the target 50 deserving girls to send high school in 2020.
