SHEE JANABHAWANA PRIMARY SCHOOL
Shee Janabhawana Primary School is a school located in Panchkhal, 1.5hr outside of Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu.
It seeks to give children a platform to attain academic excellence whilst maintaining a well-adjusted social and cultural life. Ten years ago the school fell to wrack & ruin due to a lack of money and the desire by local students to be educated in Kathmandu city itself.
Due to the now rising demand for schools in this area (given its distance from an ever-growing Kathmandu) this is now a much-needed school.
The Nepal CRED Team Trip is an opportunity to travel to the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal and spend time working at the school. Adventure Lifesigns/CRED Team Trips' long term in-country partner Narba Treks supports the trip. A key part of the trip will be delivering a five-day activity week providing fun, creative and educational activities for the students at the school.
The earthquake in 2015 damaged lots of the surrounding area and the school itself was also damaged. Since then UK teams have invested much time and money to restore the building and it now needs
provisions such as electricity and computers.
Nepal is the poorest country in South Asia and ranks as the twelfth poorest country in the world. However, over the last decade the country has made considerable progress in reducing poverty. This progress is mainly due to the money generated from tourism and the increase in foreign tourist companies investing in the area.
Unfortunately Nepal has a literacy rate at 65.9% hence the need for investment and improvement of schools particularly in rural areas, where the villages are still poor and have no electricity. Access to education for girls and women is especially hard due to cultural and socioeconomic barriers.
For both schools there is a great opportunity for CRED Team Trips to get involved and provide further support through provision of teams and the educational activity weeks.
