Stationery Kit distribution took place in June 2018 for 519 students of five schools of ward number 1 (Bhirkot village), Tamakoshi Rural Municipality, Dolakha. This area was badly damaged during the April 2015 Nepal earthquake.

The students were from ECD (Early Childhood Development) class to grade 12 of the following five schools:

  1. Narayani Secondary School
  2. Ganesh Basic School
  3. Bhimeshwor Basic School
  4. Indrawati Primary School
  5. Budhichandika Primary School

 

The stationery kit included school bag, copy, pen, dot pen, eraser, sharpener, geometric box (only for students from Grade 7 to 12) and calculator (only for students from Grade 9 to 12).

The supported stationery materials helped the students and their families, as their families are still struggling financially to rebuild their damaged houses. The provided materials were also a motivation factor for the parents to send their children to school. They were relieved and glad that they now do not require to spend their money to buy stationery materials for their children.

We thank you for your continued support.

On February 14, 2018 (Valentine Day), ECCA provided stationery materials for children of Nawa Kiran Bal Ashram, a children home located in Lalitpur district. One hundred copies, several boxes of pencils, erasers and sharpners were provided to the children on that day.

This children home has been supporting abandoned, orphan, destitute and other helpless children by providing shelter, education, medical care and vocational training so that they can be good and independent citizens. Currently, 55 children are staying in this children home.

"Our home has been getting support from individuals and organizations for day-to-day operation", shared one of the caretakers. "This support will also help our children to learn".

Although the support was not in large scale, we were able to motivate the children to study harder.

And, we are really thankful for your support.

ECCA recently distributed WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) materials to 5 community schools of Dolakha district. The support included materials like water filter, filter stands, water bottles, dustbins, dustpans, first aid kits etc.

ECCA has been working with school nature clubs and other school stakeholders for improving the school environment. The schools lacked basic needs such as water purification devices, sanitation materials, first aid kit.

"Last month, one of our students met an accident and we had to carry him and rush to the nearest health post. As we did not even have simple first aid medicine, the situation was really difficult for us", shared principal of one of the schools.

Such difficulty is expected to lessen. Now, each school has a first aid kit box.

Moreover, none of the schools had proper water purifying system. Students have been drinking water carelessly from the tap itself or wherever they get. Now, each classroom is provided with stainless steel filter fitted with silver colloidal ceramic candle which is capable of removing protozoans along with turbidity.

Also, to help the schools to improve their sanitation, dustbins, dustpans and brooms were provided for each class.

An orientation was provided to the school clubs and teachers before the distribution, such that the materials can be used efficiently and carefully.

We thank you for your support.

Shree Palanchok Bhagwati Secondary School of Panchkhal Municipality-09, Kavrepalanchok is one of the schools lying in earthquake affected regions of Nepal. Even before the earthquake, the students did not have easy learning environment.

With only 152 students, the school has many students from low economic background, who have been struggling to attend school. Parents often engage their children in agricultural works now and then, as support to the family. According to the locals, children belonging to poor economic background often have lesser chance of being regularly sent to school as parents hesitate to invest in their education.

So, as a part of educational support for children, ECCA provided 12 "All in One" book to students of class Nursery to Class 3. "All in One" is a package book for elementary grade students, which has chapters of different subjects, thus providing a large range of knowledge.

“We are really thankful for the support”, says one of the teachers. “The books will also be helpful for us to teach them and for the students as motivation to attend school.”

Coordination with the school was done through a youth group called SOFIC Nepal.

ECCA is really thankful for the support. Your continuous support will help us support larger number of students.

On June 26, 2017, 513 students of Jhule, Dolakha district received educational materials. And the reason behind this distribution is unfolded through stories of poor economic status and occupational involvement of students.

Many people in Dolakha district of Nepal are involved in agriculture. Since monsoon season is a vital time for rice planting, parents often send their children to fields as helpers instead of sending them to schools. This is a vital time for parents to earn money and also to assure good agricultural production. However, this has been a huge problem for students as they miss classes, most of them for the whole monsoon season.

"Many of our village schools get closed for 1-2 months during monsoon season", says Mr. Manoj (teacher in Amar Secondary School). "Even if we request parents to send their children to school, they argue saying that it is very important for them to earn money to afford education of their children. And we cannot argue back."

Alina, a 10th grader at Amar Secondary School, says that they have to struggle every year to complete the course. 

As a step to break this tradition, ECCA invited all students and parents at school and encouraged them to attend school daily. With the distribution of school bag, copies, pencils, erasers, pens etc. parents were provided some financial relief and were made to realize how regular attendance of their children at school can create a great impact in their future.

Besides this program, ECCA has been working to improve WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) infrastructure and behaviour in Jhule since 2016. With time and effort, positive outcomes are being seen.

We hope to keep supporting young children like them. Your continuous support will help us create positive impact in Nepalese community.
