Helambu Education and Livelihood Partnership’s (HELP) SCHOOL IN A BAG (PHASE 6) distribution event took place on Wednesday, March 25 at Shree Taltuleshwory Primary School of Sindhupalchowk. In attendance to distribute the 148 school bags were former Miss Nepal Ishani Shrestha, founder of Yangrima School Gopal Lama, former Teacher of Yangrima School Khando Lama, HELP TEAM and myself. A total of 148 school bags with various stationery materials and lunch boxes and water bottle were filled in the School Bags. An addition of tooth brushes were made to the school bags as a part of oral hygiene suggested by Miss Nepal Ishani Shrestha.
It was wonderful to be invited by HELP to be part of the bag distribution event in Taltuleshwory School. The way the students were involved in the event itself was refreshing to see. The School In A Bag ambassador Shrijana Waiba’s speech about the bag programme was wonderful to hear. In comparison to many community schools, her English was very good too. Likewise, the students and parents involvement in creating the teaching materials was another highlight during the few hours we spent at the school. I must say, a huge well-done to Ishani Shrestha for demonstrating and interacting with the children and parents about dental hygiene. I definitely believe that having her made a difference at the event.
Lastly, well done to the HELP team for their continuous work and for actively being involved in education and livelihood of the individuals living in the Helambu area.
