Education plays important role for the development of eco-friendly and sustainable community. If we think for sustainable community in the future then it is important to make the future generations highly educated and proficient so that they could contribute towards environment and their own community.

• School Renovation

• Children Assistance Project (CAP)
• Mother Assistance for income enhancement/ children education

Sunkhani VDC, Dolakha district
Saraswati Vidya Mandir
Why this school?
This primary school runs classes up to Grade Five. The school is considered as the school of the Thami (socially disadvantaged caste), Dalits (socially excluded caste) and poor children and holds a low position in the minds of the wider community. There are 103 students at the school and most are from poor or socially discriminated backgrounds and some are orphans.
There is no toilet for the students and they do not have access to drinking water. The parents of the students are so poor that they cannot afford to buy the notebooks, pens and pencils for the children. A further problem is that the parents still do not have the sense of responsibility to send their daughters to school and even the boys do not get educated after Grade Five due to poverty. There is no system of scholarship for the Thami children so the number of Thami children attending the school is decreasing.
