Building for the future

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.” target=”_blank”>

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
