Shanta Dixit, co-founder of SIRC and Director of Rato Bangela School, is also heavily involved with the Education Restoration Nepal initiative through Teach for Nepal. Shanta was credited for her dedication and support of this program. Check out this clip which demonstrates the difference one teacher can make to a village and to future generations.
From the Teach for Nepal website:
This moving video documents the impact Teach For Nepal Fellow Prajwal Khadka, who served at Narayani Higher Secondary School in Gimdi, one of the furthest villages, in the Lalitpur district.
Prajwal was part of our first cohort who began their work in April 2013 and completed Fellowship in March 2015. The video is a testament to the difference 28 TFN Fellows made in the lives of children and the community during their two years.
At the end of Fellowship 100% of students taught by Prajwal passed the SLC examination. The SLC graduation rate of the school increased from 33% in 2014 to 87% in 2015.
