Many children in public schools and orphanages continue to be deprived of basic materials that support their educational needs. One such common need is the school uniform, that many poor families struggle to provide to their children. This becomes a glaring need in the extreme cold of the Kathmandu winter, when many children lack a sweater to wear to school. This not only affects the health of the children, but also affects their motivation to attend school.
In this shivering season, you can give warmth to the children by donating Rs 450 per sweater. All 100% of your donation will be used for the purchase of the sweaters.
Do you recall when as a child you were excited by new notebooks, a sleek pencil or a fancy eraser? It was an excitement for the ones whose parents could afford them all but there are still children using loose papers, blunt pencils and erasers rubbed to grains.
This is the glaring reason behind most of the students in government schools lagging in studies. To avoid the embarrassment in class when teachers would ask for notebooks, to ignite the interest in students and motivate them to learn and to avoid putting pressure on their cash-strapped parents; since 2011, Kehi Garoun has been distributing stationery to government schools in Kathmandu.
