In Phulchoki English School, located in Badikhel, Godawari Municipality of Lalitpur district, the Nature Club students are producing chlorine solution in the school from the Mini WATA device provided by ECCA. This chlorine solution is then poured in the overhead water tank kept in the roof of the school building.
Previously, disinfected drinking water was filled in the bottles for drinking by the students, since the school lacked drinking water station (as the previous one was damaged by Nepal earthquake 2015). From ECCA support, the construction of safe drinking water station was recently completed. Now, students can easily drink disinfected water in groups.
Mr. Diwakar, Principal of the school has thanked all for the support.
Phulchoki English School, located in Badikhel, Godawari Municipality of Lalitpur district lacked drinking water station, as the previous one was damaged by Nepal earthquake. At the request of the school management, ECCA is supporting the construction of Safe drinking water station in this school, which will benefit the entire school (24 staffs and 250 students).
The water to be supplied in this water station will be chlorinated water. Water will be chlorinated by the Nature Club students who are producing chlorine solution in the school from the Mini WATA device provided by ECCA. Safe drinking water program was launched in this school in April 2018 and the related training was provided by ECCA.
Mr. Diwakar Acharya, Principal of the school thanked all for the support and remarked that the construction of the drinking water station will help the students as well as the school staffs.
The Nepal earthquake of April and May 2015 damaged numerous physical structures, including those of many schools. The facility of Jwaladevi Vidhya Mandir (JVM) School located in Badegaun, Lalitpur was also damaged. And hence, this school lacked drinking water station for its students.
At the request of the school management, ECCA supported the construction of Safe drinking water station (along with the water tank), which benefited the entire school (33 teachers and 224 students). This new water tank is specially meant to store drinking water, in which chlorine solution is mixed so as to disinfect drinking water.
Mr. Gokul Puri, Principal of the school thanked ECCA and the donors and remarked that the construction of the drinking water station and the water tank has helped the students as well as the teachers.
The Nepal earthquake of April and May 2015 damaged numerous physical structures, including those of many schools. The facility of Pushpanjali Secondary School located in Lalitpur was also damaged, because of which there was no facility for hand washing for the students.
Hence, at the request of the school management, ECCA supported the construction of hand washing station in this school, which benefited the entire school (40 teachers and 400 students).
Mr. Allen, Director of the school remarked “The construction of the hand washing facility will help to prevent the students from being afflicted by various diseases. Thank you for your help.”
ECCA has been working towards developing water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities in the schools affected by Nepal earthquake 2015. The existing toilet, which was damaged by the earthquake, was repaired and new toilet constructed in Ganesh Basic School, Dolakha.
In the developed facilities, wall painting was done. The ECCA counselors painted WASH related messages inside as well as outside the toilet building and on the wall next to the hand washing tap. The objective of the wall painting was to make the students aware about WASH and orient them on the proper utilization of WASH facilities.
Before organizing the program, the schools were informed about the details of wall painting. The school principal, teachers and parents assisted for the effective management of wall painting program.
The wall painting was done during summer vacation (the date was coordinated with the school), so as not to disturb the students in their regular class days. When the school opened after summer vacation, students were excited to see the paintings. In addition to providing useful messages, the painting made the physical infrastructures beautiful.
“The painted hand washing technique has helped to remind the students on proper steps related with the hand washing” remarked one of the teachers. The school teachers and students were thankful to ECCA for organizing such a program in the school.
