School In A Bag Nepal

Project Description

Country: Nepal

Location: Shree Sunkoshi Prmry Schl

Total Budget: $2,250

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Supply school backpacks, complete with essential learning supplies, to poor and disaster-affected school children in Golanjor Sindhuli, Nepal

Over the past few years, District 5440 has been involved with rebuilding schools in Nepal that were destroyed in recent earthquakes there. That's a great first step, but most children attending these schools can't afford more than a single pencil and a bit of paper to last their school year. Our School In A Bag project will supply every child in the Shree Sunkoshi Primary School (one of those recently rebuilt) with a high-quality backpack, filled with the following:

Books of paper, including lined, graph, and plain

Ample pens and basic pencils with erasers

Colored pencils

pencil sharpener

zippered pouch case

math kit (containing protractor, ruler, compass)

Food storage container and utensil

water bottle

Many children walk well over an hour to school, carrying books and any supplies in hand. And since the cost of food storage containers is well out of their family budgets, many children walk home to eat lunch and do not return for the remainder of the school day. These schoolbags will be filled with resources that will enable a child to write, draw, color, calculate, express themselves, and above all, LEARN!

Each bag will cost $25USD, so to supply the 90 students currently at the school, we will need a total of $2,250. Once funds are received, immediate efforts will go into assembling bags and distributing to the children asap. Our Rotarian contact in Nepal, Sudip, will be instrumental in supporting this project from the receiving end.
