Dolpa Education Development Project - Nepal.
Fundraising for supplies and a cook for Tashi Sumdho Primary School, to enable kids to get the education they deserve and need.International
Written by the school teacher Pema:
Dolpa is the biggest and one of the most isolated districts of Nepal. It is located at the North-western part of Nepal's Himalayas and borders with Tibet(China). This district is very sparsely inhabited with a population of around 30,000. People consider Dolpa as ' the hidden land’.
Until today, there is no any access of road in the entire district of Dolpo. The land is so isolated from the rest of the civilization in the country that when a person needs to go to Kathmandu to register a birth of a child or to obtain a document etc.he would say he is going to Nepal. For the people of dolpo, it takes 9-days trekking in the mountains, then 50 minutes flight by airplane from Jhupal and then a day-long journey by local bus from Nepalgunj to reach Kathmandu. There is hardly a proper health centre or hospital in the area.
The quality of education is really poor and fragile due to lack of proper facilities and also natural geographic condition. Most of the schools in the region have only up to primary grades(5th grade) level. However, Tashi Sumdho Primary School affords students only for pre-primary level to grade 3. Similarly, there are no I-NGOs or NGOs until now who can provide support to the school of Ku village. This is the village I came from and would therefore like to help find funding for it.
Tashi Sumdho Primary School
Tashi sumdho primary school is providing tuition free education for 40 students where they appointed 3 teachers for those children up to grade 3. The children's family needs to give 5 kg of rice, lintel, and vegetables and so on per a month for putting their children into school where it's not even enough, as well. The school contains 4 rooms where 2 rooms are used as classrooms; one is for kitchen and one for office purposes. The school is giving lessons in three languages, Tibetan, Nepali and English. We also have class for elder people for 1 hour a day where they help them to know daily usage and vocational knowledge.
Many people wonder why the education is so poor in these remote areas. One reason is due to the villages being so small and fare from each other village. Additionally, it can take several hours to reach the next village, so the children cannot possibly go so far each day. Sometimes there are snow lion and the children can be in extremely danger
There are also many students who have high absenteeism and low marks because they don't have a notebook, books, pencils, and a school bag and so on. Similarly, children are compelled to work at home in order to help their parents instead of going to school. Additionally, the village has little in the way of electricity. There are a few solar panels in some homes and school but it isn't enough
There is no pipeline for the water supply to the school or village, which would keep the children from getting sick. There is also a need to start the project of a green house in Ku village. This would help the children to be healthier and would build the economic base of the village.
In conclusion, to ensure the future of the Ku village and Tashi Sumdho Primary School, contributions from abroad is essential. There are various ways of supporting Ku Village and Tashi Sumdho Primary School.
