In Nepal, the fiscal year of school starts in the mid of April. Students get admitted in different schools as per their interest, accessibility, infrastructure as well as the quality of education provided in the school. Schools in Nepal are categorized as Government School (financially supported and managed by government of Nepal) and Private Boarding Schools (financially self sustained through charging higher fees for the educating students). The education systems in private boarding schools are preferred by most of the people as they adopt modern teaching methods and techniques. But, as the government schools are funded and managed by the government, the education system is poor comparatively to private boarding schools. The education at the government schools are provided for free. Hence, the parents who seek quality education for their children and could afford, send their children in private boarding schools.
Shree Minnath Lower Secondary School is one of the schools supported by the government of Nepal. Education to the students enrolled in this school is free, but, students need to purchase their books and stationary by themselves. Susma Bista (a girl) is studying at this school at grade eight. Unknown about her father, she has been raised by her mother with one younger brother and sister. Although talented among other students in the classroom, she was about to drop her school. But, with the scholarship support from ECCA in this fiscal year, she has rejoined the school and currently studying in the school. Her mother is very proud of her as she is the best student in her class.
The distribution of scholarship and educational support to students of different schools had reduced the dropout rate of students from schools. Students are provided the basic education, which is the basic necessity at the current stage. With the support of various donors from GlobalGiving as well as funds raised through various programs and events, we are trying our best to help the students like Susma Bista and others.
Hence, we would like to express our sincere thanks to all our donors, supporters, well-wishers and the GlobalGiving team for your continuous support in our initiation. We would also like to request you to disseminate the information of our program in your circle so as to raise funds and support the education of needy students. We hope for your feedback, comments and suggestion regarding our program at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we could implement our
program more effectively.
