Nepal is going through hard times. Since April 2021, lockdown is on most of the time, so it is hard for the children to go to school. Online classes are provided but kids have to gather as not everyone has Internet or a device.
This summer the teachers did house visits to motivate the children and bring some gift like copy and writing material. All kids miss the teacher and miss coming to the day care center. We wish the situation in Nepal will improve soon.
Due to extended Covid 19 life in Nepal became more difficult. While schools in the cities maintained with online classes, local schools in the villages started to open. At the moment most schools are back to normal giving physical classes again. But as schools are back to normal giving physical classes again. But as schools started late for this school year 2020-2021, they will prolong the school year till June (normally the school year finishes end of March before Nepali New Year in April).
We would like to express our gratitude for Greta Lowel and the community of Boortmeerbeek (Belgium) for their continuous support as well as private donors.
As teachers were still copying school material manually, we could provide a new printer in the Simtal Primary School in Sarangkot. We also could offer support to our BKN day care center in Sankhu. They opened on 17th of January 2021.
Thank you to our Nepali team Goma Thapa and Rajendra Basnet for their heart-opening enthusiasm and energy.
Although schools are not open yet due to the Covid19 Pandemic, students prepare themselves to start studying at home. For this school year 2020-2021 the Simtal Primary School in Sarangkot, near Pokhara, requested money from GCW to support them in buying new books, copies, pencils & uniforms for the 38 students. On August 1st our coordinator Goma Thapa handed out the new books to the students.
Thank you to private donors to support this little project.
Our Belgian friends René Njis and Yves Meremans decided to come back to Nepal and climb the Larkya Peak! Their family and friends sponsored this special expedition so they could fundraise for our day care center in Sankhu.
Rajendra Basnet and the teachers were very pleased with the visit. Thank you for supporting this school for toddlers, where they get good care and learning and playing methods. We are blessed through the help of so many Belgian people.
At Bal Kshetra Nepal (BKN) a new school year has started. This has been possible due to the help of Lut Verlinden & Tony Schilders, who fundraised in their schools in Belgium, and private donors from Belgium. GCW could again give a donation to BKN to make sure these toddlers have a wonderful year!
In November 2018 Sabine Molemans was welcomed in BKN by the Chairman Rajendra Basnet, Principal Bimala Tamang and rest of the staff. With the help of the OLVI School in Boom, Belgium and personal donors from Belgium, she could give a donation to support the day to day operation of the day care center as the school was in a dire need of funds to sustain the organisation.
The kids in the day care center come from very poor backgrounds and BKN needs financial support to run. Global Child Welfare recognises this need and is committed to support the project.
