A child’s right to education does not cease when an emergency begins; ensuring access to uninterrupted and quality learning for children is fundamental however COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic by the WHO. People from all walks of life have been hit very hard especially children. After 8 months of school closure reopening of school in Nepal has just begun. You can be a part of this endeavor. Be a part of it.
We are experienced in supporting the poorest and most vulnerable communities in Nepal, mostly deprived families and children residing in the remote villages. As a part of cluster support, for this cluster, we are supporting three schools (Praja Pragati Basic School, at Kutule,Thumki Primary school, at Sarikhet, Jana Jagriti Primary School). All schools are in ward number 2* of Raksirang Municipality situated north-west of Hetauda Municipality Headquarter of Bagmati Province in the Makwanpur District, Nepal.
Maisirang is a small village in the Raksirang 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.
