Happy New Year 2080!

The Nepali New Year 2080 began on April 14th (1 Baisakh), and therefore schools have been closed for the holiday period. They are reopening now, during this last week of April, for the new school year.

And hundreds of new and returning pre-k and kindergarten children have more enriching and attractive early childhood development classrooms in which to learn this year - thanks to your support!

Recently, ETC has provided lots of new furniture and classroom materials to the 23 ECD classrooms that we support. Twelve of these classrooms are on the campuses of primary and secondary schools, and the remaining eleven are affiliated with the schools but physically located off-campus in village buildings because of space constraints.

We've also provided playground equipment on school campuses where it was most needed.

Some of the new items have been "test-driven" already, as you can see from the photos, and all of them will be put to very good use in the months and years to come!

Last school year's ECD classroom enrollment total was 477 children (243 girls and 234 boys), and we expect that there will be many or more during the school year that is just beginning. Every one of those kids deserves a great place to learn and grow. Thank you again for helping to make that happen!
