Maisirang is a small village in the Rakshirang Rural Municipality which lies within the Makwanpur district. The population of Maisirang is consists of the most disadvantaged and marginalized indigenous groups who are commonly referred to as ‘the chepangs’. Extreme and rising poverty has led to poor literacy and income opportunities. There are no higher education facitilies available within the village and most students have to travel between 2 to 3 hours to attend higher education institutes. Furthermore, the primary schools which are available lacks key educational equipment and trained teachers. Many children drop out of education at a young age due to the lack of supplies and also due to the burden of having to provide financially for their family’s livelihood.
This is a complex and widespread issue, therefore in order to tackle this MAMI has decided to focus on one school initially and provide educational aide to them. The school chosen is the Shree Chepang Pragati Primary School, we will provide this school with essential tools like stationery and notebooks once every three months. MAMI has also appointed trained and qualified teachers and volunteers to ensure that the quality of education provided to the children in this school improves and remains consistent. Our team will conduct annual supervision of the school and coordinate with the local heads and the school departments to ensure that the children are receiving good education which will help them access future opportunities and their basic needs are satisfied.
There is still low access to quality schooling, learning opportunities, and safe environments in rural Nepal. Different projects undertaken by MAMI Foundation can help children and their families to explore different opportunities to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth by increasing their chance for better employment through education. Your contribution to the MAMI Foundation will support the education and healthcare of rural and underprivileged children (especially girls) in remote areas of Nepal.
