Tamakoshi Rural Municipality is located around 150 km north of Kathmandu in Dolakha district in central Nepal. Due to its proximity to the Himalayan range, this region is cold. The people residing in the locality are poor and cannot afford additional warm clothes for their children. Because of lack of warm clothes, many children do not attend class regularly and also get sick. Since the winter season has started, ECCA arranged warm clothes for the school students studying from Early Childhood Development Center to Class 10. The dress consists of T-shirt, jacket and trousers all made from thick cloth (which keeps the body warm). The dress has just been stitched, packed and is ready for transport to the schools.
Shrijansil Primary School lies in a remote village Lekhtakura in Salyan district in west Nepal. After promulgation of new constitution in Nepal in September 2015, Salyan district lies in province 6 (named later as “Karnali”).
Many students studying in this school come from low-income family. At the request from Mr. Chandra, a local person from that area, Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness (ECCA) supported stationary materials (copy, pencil, sharpener, erasure, etc.) to 88 students studying in this school.
The school Principal mentioned that the distributed stationery materials has helped the students in their studies. He has thanked ECCA and all for the kind support.
Diya, a student in a school in Morang district, East Nepal comes from a low-income family. ECCA provided her education materials consisting of school bag, copy, fountain pen, dot pen, eraser, sharpener, geometric box. The recipient students were selected based on their family income, academic performance and the student’s engagement in Nature Club activities.
Diya shared “the supported education materials were very necessary to me because our new academic year just started. I was feeling sad to ask my parents to purchase educational materials for me because of their low income. With the support from ECCA, now, I have new bag, copies and stationeries which helps me to overcome my financial problem and makes it easy in my studies”.
After promulgation of new constitution in Nepal in September 2015, Jajarkot district lies in province 6. ECCA has been conducting various programs in nine schools of Punma village located in Jajarkot district in Mid-western region of Nepal.
These activities (related with safe drinking water, conservation education, etc.) are conducted for school students through school based students’ club named “Nature Club”. Besides facilitating the implementation of such activities, ECCA provides game materials for extra-curricular activities and also to motivate the students to participate in the club activities.
The Nature Club members expressed happiness in getting the materials and thanked all for your support provided.
Stationery materials were distributed to various schools in Bhirkot village, Tamakoshi Rural Municipality, Dolakha. This area was badly damaged during the April 2015 Nepal earthquake.
The stationery materials included school bag, copy, pen, dot pen, eraser, sharpener, geometric box (for students from Grade 7 to 12) and calculator (for students from Grade 9 to 12).
Mr. Rambir, Principal of Indrawoti Primary School, Bhirkot village expresses his views as follows:
“Our students are mainly from low economic level family. Most of them couldn’t afford the necessary education materials for their children to go to school. Because of this situation, the number of students attending school was low. After stationary materials support for students, I found increase in students’ attendance. The families and school are thankful for the support.”
