Education support in rural area of the Dhading district (Nepal)
Partner: Nepal-Inzlingen, Germay
Project Location: Siddhalek Rural Municipality- 4, Salang, Dhading, Nepal
Project Duration: January 2024 to September, 2024
Malika Basic School is located in the Dhading District, Bagmati Province of Nepal at Siddhlek Rural Municipality Ward No. 4 Salang of the district. It takes about 1.30 hour to reach the school from the district headquarter Dhadingbesi. Although, the distance of the school form Dhadingbesi is about 30 KM only, the rural road takes more time to travel to the school and the community. Since the Malika Scholl is located in the hilly area, the settlement is scattered. Due to the distance to the school without proper transportation system, the children have to walk on for more then half an hour to reach the school.
The Malaika Basic school offers education form grade ECD to 5 only. After upgrading from grade 5, the children need to walk about an hour distance to go to the another school for the education. There are currently 76 children studying in the Malika school, and 6 teachers are working in the school
Due to the devastating earthquake of 2072, the classrooms of the school were badly cracked. Although, the school was marked unsafe for children after the earthquake the school building has been in use since then because there are no other classes to accommodate the students. This school could not be reconstructed because the school does not have its own financial resources, and the parents are not in a position to help because they are poor. Until now, no government or non-government agency has helped to build this school building. As the parents and teachers have always risk to keep the students in this cracked school structure, the School management committee is in recent need of a 4 room permanent school structure.
Expected Results and Activities:
- Construction of a new school building.
- Supply of water facility in the school
- Provide educational materials support to the children
- Support learning materials to the ECD
