環宇基金會-尼泊爾代表 Karma DM Sherpa 報導 校名：Chahare Primary school 尼泊爾的高山小學
Its not the same school like when I visited in 2012 at the first time for exploring the school.At that time all the student were being taught nearby the road to Jiri. At the time I asked to one of the teaching stuff there. Why do you teach student on the floor nearby the road? She replied me that they do not have enough classrooms and it is so cold to teach them in the classroom. The place is situated around 2500 high altitude. This is why children want to study out site of class room during the day because they can enjoy the sun. I could see the students were not wearing the shoes and most of them had torn out massive clothing, No school dress at all.
Circumstances change the life, exactly when I was there to distribute their monthly scholarship, things have changed a lot. I could not even imagine most they are on school dress with happy face. When asked some questions during the interview to their guardians. One of my question was “What do you want to say to your sponsor? “ I asked them in their local language because they understand neither English nor Nepalese. They wanted to say many words to express their happy feelings and thanks to their sponsor but they could not find proper words for even thanking their sponsor. In this time I got a opportunity to see many people “good mind but uneducated”.
Beside this personal development, the school got government support to build the real school and the school got two more government teaching stuffs just because of ICEF scholarship. When ICEF Taiwan start providing them monthly scholarship many students join to this school and dropping out of students has been stopped in this school. Now there are more than 85 students in small school. According to the Radha Madam the principal of this school, students are coming to school regularly and all people around this school area watching this school as a sample school of “quick changing” The government stuff also visit the school time to time after the school has been help by ICEF said Radha.
I could see clearly “hope in their faces” Hope brings energy and smile to develop them and their nation.
After distributing the scholarship, when I am coming back to Kathamdu the capital city of Nepal, they shake hands saying see you soon. I also could see kind of civilization in them.
Hope the scholarship will help them to build their life and Nepal.
