Supporting a Community school in Nepal

There are hundreds of community schools in Nepal. Many of them are run by the local community and the government of Nepal provides most of the funds to run the school. Many community schools in Nepal are also supported by some national and International Non-governmental organizations. Shree Mahankal Secondary School is a local government school located at Kavre district, Nepal. The school is situated at Dev Bhumi village development committee at Bela, Kavre, Nepal. Nepali Host Family and Hamromaya Nepal first ran project at the school to help the local children. In September 2013, we organized a Medical outreach at Shree Mahankal Secondary School with the technical support of Kathmandu university Dhulikhel hospital. Now coming in 2014, we have supported this school again and this time to transform its classrooms. This school was established in 1990. It has about 350 students and twelve classrooms.

Our project to support the community school

The classroom walls looked dirty when we first visited the school in 2013. The colors had faded and it looked like the classrooms needed immediate improvement. The Principal of the school told us that it had been more than ten years that the classrooms haven’t been painted. Our organization, Nepali host family and Hamromaya Nepal decided to change the classrooms of the school by giving it a new paint. We provided funds to the school for painting of all twelve classrooms. Hamromaya Nepal wanted to provide the school new study materials as well. So study material of different subjects like English, Science, Math, Geography and other were handed over to the school Principal. Different maps of the world, maps of Nepal and educational materials were provided to the school.

After the paint, In order to improve the classrooms more, we supported the school by providing new classroom management furniture’s. The classroom management furniture includes a table, a chair and a cupboard for every classroom. As every classroom will have a cupboard so it will be useful for the teachers to store student files and reports safely in the class. As classroom management can be very costly so many community schools in Nepal do not have it. Our organization will continue the projects to support the community school in Nepal.

Government school in Nepal

The condition of government school in Nepal is not good compared to the private schools. The budget given by the government of Nepal for the local community schools is inadequate. Many government schools in Nepal suffer from many problems. The two major problems of the government schools in Nepal is lack of resources and management. The Painting of the classrooms and the donation of the classroom management materials and the educational materials to Shree Mahankal Secondary school at Kavre has helped the school in many ways. Our support has enabled this community school to uplift its physical infrastructure.

Hamromaya Nepal: a charity from Germany starts work in Nepal

Hamromaya Nepal is a charitable organisation based in Germany. It was founded in October 2012. The name of the charity is derived from a Nepali word “hamro maya” which gives a combined meaning “our love”. It is the love which the founders of the charity have for Nepal and the Nepali children that made them establish an organisation to help the underprivileged children of Nepal. The organisation aims in supporting the Nepali children for their education, health by uplifting the standards of the Schools, Orphanages, Child care homes and Disabled homes. Our Non-profit, Nepali Host Family is working together with Hamromaya Nepal.

German charity organisation in Nepal

The members of the charity, Hamromaya Nepal have been fundraising, collecting donations in Germany to organize different projects in Nepal. The Founder of the charity came to Nepal in February 2013 with some projects. The main project was to provide new furniture’s to a school in Kathmandu. The plan was to provide new desks, benches and chairs to the Kindergarten classes of the school. The condition of this school is about average. They need financial or technical support. It was a nice time to provide them the new furniture’s which included 6 Desks, 12 Benches and 12 Chairs. At the same time, we worked on some other projects as well. Buddhist child home is the Orphanage with 35 children. Hamromaya Nepal helped in buying some stationery like note books, pencils and pens. They were also in need of curtains and pillows. So the charity helped to get curtains for fifteen windows. The other important work which we did for the orphanage was taking seven of the kids for eye checkups. These seven kids had poor eye sight and were facing problems in studying. So after checkups at the hospital, 4 kids were provided with the glasses and the prescribed medicine was bought for the other kids.

Another nice project which we accomplished at the same time was buying different supplies for the Disabled rehabilitation school in Kathmandu. Nirmal Bal Bikas Vidyalaya is a disabled rehabilitation school which is in urgent need of help. Hamromaya Nepal provided a small support by buying a Sewing machine, Woolen threads and Cotton clothes for them. They needed this for running their vocational classes. A kerosene stove was also bought for the kitchen of this school.

Hamromaya Nepal e.V. hasn’t even been a year old and already the charity was able to do so much for the Nepalese Children. We would like to sincerely thank all the German citizens who had donated for the different projects of Hamromaya Nepal. Nepali Host Family is proud to have a partner organization like them.
