Summary

This project ensures daily education in two Lower Secondary Schools for in total 80-100 children during winter periods (6 months). These villages are in Upper Dolpo in Nepal at 4,000 meter altitude. Students will be trained in general knowledge, Nepali curriculum and understanding of Tibetan culture. Without our support, schools would not exist in this remotest populated mountainous region in the world. The supported children get a choice how and where they want to live their life in future.

Challenge

All villages are almost cut from the society, in particular in winter times. It takes 15 hiking days to and from the next trafficable road. Electricity and phone connections do not exist, and medical care is very poor. To get there, one needs to cross several 5,000-meter passes. People can only survive with farming and children often need to help them during summer while missing their school lessons. The only way to provide education is running local schools including winter lessons.

Solution

Investment in education in Nepal provides a huge benefit for each individual and the community. The young adults are able to organize living conditions and manage farming more effectively. They get a better relation to money and live a conscious life. There is evidence that young women get more self-confident and dare to ask for help, e.g. at birth. We fund annual training sessions for teachers to improve their skills. Some children from neighbour villages can stay in the school during winter.

Long-Term Impact

More and more children are finishing basic school and continue their education in Kathmandu. Some stay in the city, some go back home as farmers, teachers, medical assistants or in any other function. This is the only hope for these villages to survive long-term, because the students generate new ideas in agriculture, family planning and communal life. It is really worth to support these former Tibetan people preserving their unique, peaceful and non-violent culture whilst advancing their lives.
