We received an update from Devi Prasad last week. He informed us that the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 is starting to rise relatively quickly now across Nepal with over 20 deaths being reported. It has now reached their district but there are still no cases in their village, which is great news and we pray that it continues that way.
Access to technology is clearly not very easy in the village so there is no chance of internet/zoom lessons. However, lockdown there has eased and so the teachers are very busy teaching the children in safe groups. The juniors are not attending, they are staying at home with their parents but there are 100 boys and 82 girls participating in the learning activities. All of the staff are involved in the teaching and the children are being taught in 10 groups.
It’s fantastic to see that even in these difficult circumstances our staff are determined to do their best for the students and the students are still so keen on learning. Even more important than making sure that quality education is given, they are still giving priority to the safety of the students and all staff, students and parents are happy with the arrangements. Well done and thank you to the staff and students for their efforts and commitment!
Thank you all for your continued support and please continue to hold our school and the village in your thoughts and prayers.
