Completion of REEP Project

Altruism Students' Quality Circle of Little Angels' School organized Reading Extension Program (REEP) at Baluawa Secondary School located at Baluwapati Deupur VDC of Kavrepalanchowk district on 24th Jestha 2069 ( 6th June 2012), Wednesday.
Six students belonging to SQC at LAS started the REEP- Baluwapati project with the mission to provide reading and writing support to the poor, underprivileged and needy students of remote places of Nepal in cooperation with other students, teachers, school management and other supporting organizations. This year they choose one government school of Kavre where around 70% out of 550 students are from Tamang community and rest from the Dalit community. Altruism SQC started this project from the month of February 2011 by collecting course books, other reading materials, copies and stationeries from the students and raising funds voluntarily from students, teachers and Mega Publication to buy the reading and writing materials for the students of Beluga Secondary School.
Miss Anusha Shrestha, the leader of Altruism SQC and the Head Girl of LAS handed over the collected course books, other reading materials, Copies and other stationeries which amounts to around Rs, 40,000/ to Mr. Sriram Timilsina, the Headmaster of the school and Mr. Krishna Bahadur Tamang, the Chairman of the school management committee jointly in a function organized by them. The headmaster of the school thanked all the students and teachers of LAS for their valuable support which could help the students of Baluwa Sec. School in reading and writing activities to alleviate their academic poverty.






Mr. Mukunda Raj Sharma, the Vice Principal of LAS addressed the big assembly of the students and teachers highlighting the purposes of Reading Extension program and the importance of education for the students. Similarly, Miss Anusha Shrestha expressed her views on the objectives, importance and the activities of REEP Project and thanked all the students, teachers, and management of both the schools and Megha Publication who supported to make the Reading Extension program a great success.
Mr. Krishna Shah Yatri, the Scholar of Nepal Natya Sangit Sahitya Pratisthan, Mr. Nirajan Adhikari, the Counselor and SQC Coordinator of LAS, Mrs. Sarita Dewan, the HOD of English, Mr. Prabin Dutta and Mr. Suman Dangol, the teachers and 25 students belonging to SQC had participated in the program.

Materials Prepared for the REEP Project

Altruism SQC collected the reading and writing materials and made all the arrangements of the logistics necessary for it. We collected the money voluntarily from the students and teachers to buy the stationery, copies and books. We did this because the collected items were not enough to provide those materials to all the students studying at Baluwa Secondary School. We collected Rs.6793 (Rupees Six Thousand Seven Hundred Ninety Three Only) and bought copies, stationery and books. Our school has committed to give us 150 copies, books, book shelf, transportation and other necessary support for this project.

We made the packets of the materials in the given quantity .We have planned to give one set of stationeries materials and a copy to each student of the school and course books to those who are needy. We have planned to provide other books for the establishment of library at Baluwa Secondary School.

REEP Project Area Information
 Baluwa Secondary School, Kavre, Nepal

School Name: Baluwa Secondary School
Location: Kavre District, Baluwapati Deupur VDC,                                     Baluwapati
Distance: 40 KM from Kathmandu (towards north east from                     Kathmandu)
Total Number of Students: 524
Students Status: Tamangs, poor, underprivileged and                                    indigenous
Problems:
   Lack of reading materials
   Lack of stationery goods
   Lack of library
   Lack of computer education
   Lack of language skills
   Lack of playing materials
   Lack of infrastructures
Problem we tried to address at present: Lack of reading and   writing materials and library

Baluwa Secondary School is located at Baluwapati Deupur Village Development Comittee, Baluapati, Kavre, Nepal which is towards the north east of Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. It is about 40 KM from Kathmandu. This school is the government run school but the school is running with various problems and insufficiencies.
This school has preprimary classes where 16 students are studying. There are 158 students studying in the primary level, 216 students in the lower secondary level and 98 students in secondary level. The girl students are more than the boy students in this school. There is more number of students from Tamang community which is the poor and belongs to tribal caste of Nepal. Moreover there are about 30 students who are behaved as the Dalit or untouchable caste (Sudras). These students are not behaved in this way now but their social, economic and academic condition is very pathetic.
Altruism SQC is more concentrated to help these indigenous students of this area by providing reading and writing support.
This school does not have the library. There is the problem of space to establish library. There is no government support for managing library room, books and furniture. Moreover the students have the problem of the course book. School has not been able to provide the necessary course books to all the students as the budget allocated by the government to the school is insufficient to buy books for the total number of students studying in this school.
After we found all these information of the school, we decided to support this school by providing the course books, other reading materials, copies and other stationeries to the needy students, especially we will focus to those Dalit students to provide the necessary support after we meet them and access their need. We have already collected the course books, other reading materials and stationeries (Pencil, pen, sharpener, eraser, scale, compass, and ruler) from the students of our school.
We have planned to go to Baluwa Secondary School for the completion of our first REEP Project in the coming week. The date will be finalized very soon after we talk with our school administration and Baluwa Secondary School.

Exploration of the New Project Area

We the members of Altruism Students Quality Circle had the meeting after collecting the information of the school for the new project area., As we were unable to hand over the reading and writing materials that we had collected from the students of our school voluntarily  to our first project area, Shree Kunti Secondary School, Achham, we searched another school near to Kathmandu for the new project area where we could hand over the collected reading and writing materials to the needy students as the final part of our first REEP Project.
To find out the school for the new project area, we requested our guide teachers, Vice Principals and Principals and finally they helped us providing the name of one school, Shree Baluwa Secondary School of Kavre district of Nepal. Then we decided to collect all the necessary information of this School so as to access the real need of the students studying in this school. We will take two/ three days to collect the information.
Presently, we are arranging and picketing the collected materials to be distributed to the students of Baluwa Secondary School.

Looking for an Alternative
Today, on 16th May 2012, Wednesday, the SQC members of Altruism had a meeting to discuss and decide about the implementation of the project that we were carrying out to support the students of Shree Kunti Secondary School, Kuntibardali, and Achham, Nepal. We had already collected 750 books from the students of Little Angels' School. We had planned to go there or call the School Head Master here at our school this week. But neither could we go there, nor could they come here to receive the books because of the regular strikes, bandhs and political instability and insecurity in different parts of the country.
Constituent Assembly is in the process of finalizing the constitution of the Federal Republican Democratic Nepal. In this course many political parties, ethnic groups and indigenous people are in the movement for establishing their rights. A nation wide movement is going on. The situation is not favorable for us to hand over the books to those needy students. So we decided to postpone our REEP Achham Project for six months and see the needy school nearby Kathmandu Valley where we could go and help the students who are not getting an opportunity to read the books within this month (May). We will search for the next REEP Project and this will go on through out the whole year. We will have other REEP projects in different districts of Nepal after the situation of the country gets better.
