OXNepal 2015

By OX Adventure, in Non-Profit, at Kuwait City, Kuwait

OXNepal 2015 will be a ten-day journey in which the volunteers first began in the streets of Kathmandu, then head on a 6-hour bus ride to Pokhara where they saw Lake Fewa, the second largest lake in Nepal. They began their 4 nights and 5-day hike on Panchasee Trail, passing through dense forests, through extreme heat and carrying their backpacks the entire way. After the hike, they will restore a school in a village in Kathmandu Valley.

Story

The team will donate teaching materials to allow for better quality education and with Q8 Books will collaborate to donate books to build a library full of textbooks and entertaining reads for the children. Construction of a sanitary water well will take place as well as other repairs in the school should funds be raised. These restorations include repairing broken walls, painting, building a water system in the toilets for hygienic purposes, cementing the basketball courts so the children can safely play and installing a computer lab with all electrical sockets and chairs needed to make it a proper learning environment. The reasons for these restorations are explained in the following.

Some of the identified problems in Nepal are:

  • Parents are too poor to pay the costs of better education:

Many parents, although still not all, see the importance of better education. However, they cannot afford to send their children to private schools. At village schools we see many children without books, notebooks or even pencils.

  • Children do not have access to drinking water at every school:

Summers are really hot in Nepal. Moreover, many school buildings have a tin roof underneath of which temperatures rise to a maximum. Without drinking water children fail to concentrate. Especially in the nursery and kindergarten classes we often see children simply sleeping with their heads on their desks.

  • Children are undernourished and thus lack the energy to concentrate for longer periods of time:

Nepal is now officially the poorest country in Asia and most children do not get enough to eat, let alone enough of the nutrients that they need. At home they usually get a meager portion of vegetables, and they very rarely eat more than one piece of fruit a week, if even that. The lack of vitamins is obvious. Moreover, many children do not bring an adequate lunch to school and we see children having barely a handful of popcorn to get them through a day at school that lasts from 10 am to 4 pm. Let's not forget that some of these children have to walk half an hour or more before to even arrive at school. Additionally, the same goes for teachers. Many teachers only drink water or tea during lunch break and clearly cannot possibly give the students their best during the last 3 or 4 periods of the day.

  • Furniture is very uncomfortable:

School furniture is usually very old, used, worn and torn. Children sit on straight hard wooden benches, without backrests, at 4 or even 5 students on a 6 foot bench. How can they possibly sit comfortably on this for 7 or 8 class periods a day?

  • Schools lack materials to teach in creative, interesting ways:

Village schools often have only a blackboard and some pieces of chalk as material for a teacher to run the class.

  • Teachers lack training to teach in new interactive ways that stimulate the children:

If a school does not have a large range of diverse materials, it can only compensate for this by a teacher with a range of diverse techniques like having children come to the blackboard and write or draw something, play hangman, do a guessing game with drawn pictures on the board, make groups and do role-plays, having sing-a-longs, etc. But probably not a single teacher in rural Nepal has ever seen any of these techniques being displayed in practice. How, then, can they apply them?
