Case Study— reading books for primary schools

Many children in remote villages have never seen a reading book, so we teamed up with Shiksha Nepal to send 12,000 books to 17 schools in the remote mountainous Dolpa district.
Shiksha Nepal had collected used and new books from schools in Kathmandu and we helped transport the books to the schools. We produced a leaflet to help schools understand how to use a library.
We take monitoring and evaluation seriously, so we arranged for Kiran on the left of the photo to visit all the schools. It took him two flights and a couple of days walking up the mountains to reach the district.
Kiran spent a couple of weeks walking up and down mountains going from village to village. He met with Head Teachers, teachers, school management committees, parents and students to obtain feedback on the success of the project.
