On January 24, 2016 ECCA (Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness) with Global Giving's support provided white boards, markers, magnetic dusters and inks as educational support to 47 schools of 9 Village Development Committees (Dalchoki, Ikudol, Asrang, Bhattedada, Malta, Chaughare, Kaleshwor, Sankhu and Gimde) of southern Lalitpur. The materials were handed over to representatives of each school by Mr. Bisweswor Koirala (Senior Social Mobilization Officer of Lalitpur District) Mr. Rabindra Khatri (ECCA program officer ).
The educational support is expected to provide more efficient and easy learning for more than 2400 students of these schools which are currently in their phase of reestablishing the school environment after being affected by the earthquake. "We use blackboards for teaching and the chalk dust affects health of us teachers to a great extent. Now we won't have to worry much", said Bal Bahadur Lama principal of Kalidevi Primary School, Sankhu after the distribution programme.
ECCA thanks all donor/supporters for helping it to support students in rural Nepal. With the support of Global Giving, ECCA has already distributed copies, pencils, bags and other stationery materials as well as tracksuits, shoes and socks to students of various earthquake affected districts.
