Since the 2015 earthquake, The Juniper Trust has unwaveringly dedicated itself to supporting remote and vulnerable mountain communities in Nepal. The organization has successfully rebuilt twenty schools, providing an opportunity for even the poorest and most vulnerable children to access education, which was previously beyond their reach.

Despite these accomplishments, two significant challenges persist. Firstly, there is a lack of adequate training for teachers to deliver high-quality lessons, especially in early years learning, spoken English, and practical science. Secondly, schools face a dire need for essential equipment, and the absence of adequate libraries remains a primary concern.

To address these challenges, The Juniper Trust launched the Nepal Quality Schools Project in November 2021. This initiative aims to provide teacher training, establish well-stocked and diverse libraries, and furnish schools with the necessary equipment to enhance the quality of education. Currently, ten schools are part of a two-year teacher training program, with two new central libraries at Uma Kunda and Maili Schools.

The comprehensive training program involves assessments, conferences for head teachers, and the development of a program for Nepali teachers, with the goal of creating a supportive environment for all children to ensure a quality education.

In November 2023, The Juniper Trust conducted its inaugural teacher training session. Led by retired UK educators Chris, Justin, and their daughter Holly, the session benefited over 30 teachers from 10 schools in the Kinja Valley. The program included fun days for the children, accompanied by the distribution of notebooks, whiteboards, pens, pencils, and other essential supplies to all 10 schools.t 2024: Raising Funds to Support Nepal Schools

A Call for Support in 2024

As our commitment to these schools continues, we aim to raise £10,000 in 2024 to provide basic essentials like furniture, internet access, basic PCs, whiteboards, notebooks, pens, pencils, and more. Additionally, there's a request for £3,000 to renovate an abandoned classroom at Uma Kunda School into a kitchen/dining area, where donated food from villagers will be prepared for the children at school.

You can be a part of this initiative and help make a difference in the lives of these children.
