Summary

One of the most impoverished ethnic communities of Nepal, 'Tharus' have Sickle Cell Anemia Disease (SCD). Lack of easy access to health facilities and costly treatment is limiting their ability to pursue education and in many cases, threaten their basic survival. Due to this disease school going children are affecting their formal education.

Challenge

Tharu ethnic communities are highly marginalized and vulnerable in western Nepal. There are 137,000 Tharus in Dang district alone (CBS 2011), and 15 % of them are reported to have been affected by SCD, most of them are school-age children. These school-aged children suffer from Hemoglobin disorders and ultimately dropout form the school. The poor economic and social condition of the parents contributes further to the problem as they see children as an extra pair of hands earning their livelihood

Solution

Project will support sickle cell diseases affected school age children and enable them to complete school education. They will also receive counseling on how to apply the way of life for nutritious food. The severally affected 350 children will receive medicinal treatment costs, including Hemoglobin. It helps have access to the educational right. The parents will receive awareness, enhanced knowledge of SCD and vocational skill training, with tools and materials for small business enterprises.

Long-Term Impact

People in the target communities will have a dignified and healthy life with long-term access to government resources and services. School-aged children will have the opportunity to acquire better education and livelihood, which will contribute to becoming self-reliant citizens. By taking a small initiative, we will help in achieving the global goal of leaving no one behind of SDGs.
