With the sponsorship program on board, our students finally have the opportunity of
working on computers and exploring the Internet! This is a great leap of progress in NEIO as it allows our students to access different resources and would ensure that they are engaged in learning. We are currently sponsoring up to 15 students and hope to provide all students with a computer in the near future.
Wayne(Founder of NEIO) and a group of volunteers are in Nepal since 3/26/16 bringing with them a number of supplies for the students. We plan to visit some of the schools we have helped build and bring them essential supplies including pencils, pens, art material, and laptops.We will also visit other schools to share best practices with each other.
Volunteers meet the students in Nakote!
See below for details:
Basin and Taps for the bathrooms
Portable Sound Box
All these supplies are to help provide the students with more learning tools so they can have a meaningful education. Thanks you for your continued support and please check here for updates on our trip!
We have some great news to share. Singhadevi Temporary Learning Centre (TLC) has begun operating this month. Big round of applause to Shreekrishna Shrestha, his villagers and Chiring Lama, our NEIO Field Manager who made this possible.
37 students are attending this school with more expected after the monsoon season. There are five teachers currently working there. The size of the Singhadevi TLC is 40 ft by 20 ft. There are three rooms that are 15 ft. by 12.5 ft.
The project was executed efficiently. Thanks to the locals pictured below who worked hard to make this project a reality.
Thank you all for your continuing support.
Note: This post is about a visit to Phokara that took place last year.
During their visit to Pokhara, some of the volunteers met up with a friend and the school district chairperson Bhola and took a taxi to the village. They stayed the night and toured the school, library, and medical center during the day. They found out that this school also houses a popular FM radio station that can be a great avenue for an English speaking volunteer to use to broadcast information.
The secondary school pictured above is quite remarkable. At the time our volunteers visited, they were hoping to expand the science and math sections of the school. In particular, they were encouraging girls to pursue careers in these fields. Our volunteers held a meeting with all faculty who emphasized their desire to improve the teaching there to compete with schools in Kathmandu and Pokhara.
Way to go Pokhara. We wish you the best!
Note: The events described in this post happened last year. This is a late post.
The cubby holes that were delivered in September 2013 are put together and being used by the hostel students! Prior to this, the students did not have any formal form of storage, so this furniture has really helped organize their personal belongings.
Note: This is late post about an event that happened in 2013.
In October 2013, two adult buffaloes and their calves were added to the Nurbuling school community! They’re being well taken care of by a full-time caretaker. They are milked daily and the milk is boiled and consumed every dinner by the children. As we all know, milk is a great source of nutrients crucial to the development of the brain. A big shout out to Melodie and Chiring who did all the leg work to acquire the buffaloes!
