an education system
through 4 aspects
including 9 programs
Allow children of poverty to maintain education
• 600+ Students received scholarships
• 3,000 students received daily lunch meals
• 350+ students took the school bus
After a devastating earthquake hit Nepal in 2015, hundreds and thousands of children are forced to become child laborers or victims of child marriage. In Gorkha, one of the Calls Over Ridges’s service districts, over 42% of the students drop out of school due to financial difficulties after the earthquake. Calls Over Ridges support children’s education by providing educational funds to decrease families’ financial burdens.
From resistant to assistant
• 1,000+ parents participate in their children’s education
Parents are an important role in children’s education. It helps extend education outside the classroom. Studies have shown that children, whose parents are highly involved in their education, have lower dropout and truancy rates. Unfortunately, in our service region, 70% of the parents do not support their children’s education, resulting in a high dropout rate. To encourage parents to participate in school activities, we invited inspiring speakers to share how education changes their life with parents. In addition, we organize parents’ days and workshops to help parents understand their children’s learning situation every school year.
Building confidence toward a career path
Ongoing stressful life events, financial disturbance, and lack of learning resources due to poverty directly affect students’ school performance. With a low school performance, students often experience low self-esteem and thus lost motivation to study. Calls Over Ridges build students’ intrinsic motivation by providing career guidance, helping students to find their interest, and identifying related job opportunities.
Establish educational resources that can be passed on
• 400+ students attended remedial courses
• 3,000 students received learning kits
Schools in Nepal have been deprived of learning resources. School facilities are inadequate and decaying and most schools do not have a library or computer classroom. Schools are lacking teachers and learning materials, resulting in not having English courses in school. Calls Over Ridges have been dedicated to optimizing the learning environment for students and therefore we provide remedial courses and improve school facilities.
We have served 15 schools across Nepal,
here’s our partners’ testimony:
Calls Over Ridges and its team provide not only infra-structure support but also overall programs that fit our needs. They are certainly working with us to change the environment for our kids. We are allies on the frontline of education.
