Published on: 05/07/2019
Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN) has been working at Okhaldhunga since 2012 with the intention to help and empower marginalized communities through education, health, women empowerment, income generation, child development, youth empowerment and Community health programs etc.
VIN (Okhaldhunga) has been given scholarship program to the poor, helpless and marginalized students. VIN (Okhaldhunga) has been distributing educational materials to the scholarship students since the work started at Okhaldhunga (2012). This year 2019 VIN (Okhaldhunga) had given scholarship to 36 students from different communities and from different background.
Education materials for the scholarship students distribution program is a part of Children development program is based on community approach which is supported by the VIN and the volunteers. The aim of this program is to protect the rights of all the children in the community by providing access to the basic level education. Most of the children at Okhaldhunga are not completing their primary education because of their family economic status. Children leave the school in the middle of their study and go to work to feed their family. To overcome from this situation VIN (Okhaldhunga) has been facilitating this sort of scholarship program to the rural poor, marginalized, Dalit and backward childrens in the community.
This year VIN (Okhaldhunga) team had planned and organized to distribute scholarship materials differently than the past year. VIN (Okhaldhunga) organized education materials distribution program at Raktamala Basic School in the presence of Mayor (Siddhicharan Municipality), ward president, stakeholders, local leaders, local people, teachers and the students. This year the total numbers of scholarship students were 36 from different schools. The education materials includes, 14 notebooks, single set of school uniform, a pair of shoes, school bag, two pair of socks, geometry box, ludo, skipping rope, dozens of pens, color box etc. for the summer intake. Later in the winter VIN (Okhaldhunga) will distribute a sweater, similar number of notebooks and pens etc.
