A LITTLE ABOUT SOME OF OUR PROJECTS IN NEPAL
Jeevan Jyoti School
Our school in Kohalpur grew this year when we built a third storey, increasing our classrooms to 12, and in April 2015 70 new children joined us. We currently have a total of 214 pupils, most of whom are Tharu children sponsored by Lincs2Nepal. We offer the highest quality education in the region. All of our teachers are qualified teachers; they are all Hindu ladies and all speak fluently in both Nepali and English. They are assisted by 2 catholic sisters from India who work as missionaries and 2 students who we are currently funding through college. Our school principal is Father Jomon James, an Indian catholic priest. We are always looking to raise standards and in March 2015 we travelled to Kohalpur with 'Reach Out 2 Schools', a charity run by academics, who have begun a teacher training programme which will completely revolutionise teaching methods.
75 Friends Building
75FRIENDS was built in the Shantinagar slums to enable poorer children living in the slum areas to attend an educational programme in preparation for school at Jeevan Jyoti. The building is also used for Women’s Empowerment Groups and adult education, health and hygiene classes, and acted as a temporary shelter for 26 families during the monsoon season when their mud homes were washed away.
The building cost was £7,500 and has been paid for by '75 friends' who donated to Lincs2Nepal specifically to enable the building of this much needed resource in 2014.
We currently rent a two room building in Rejena Village where we provide an education programme for the children of Rejena who do not attend Government schools, in readiness for them joining us at Jeevan Jyoti. We also run Womens Empowerment groups teaching tailoring, enabling the women to learn skills necessary to repair their own clothes, make new clothes for themselves and their families and to sell in the local markets.
We have plans to build toilet blocks, communal washing areas and a community hall with support from The University of Lincoln.
