About

Give these two Nepali kids access to education! The children who attend Vajra Academy are selected from families that cannot afford good education for their children. Each child is sponsored for a period of minimum 5 years. Teachers of the Vajra Academy school are trained in high quality and child friendly education. The school is also open to children whose parents can pay the regular fees. This makes the school sustainable in the future. The school is the first eco-friendly school in Nepal with a solar kitchen for cooking and a biogas installation. At this moment the school has 133 students.

Project blog

Dear Players, there has been quite some movement since the last update. First of all a warm welcome to Roelfina and Ritsaart and thanks for your generous donations! We’re also very excited that Corporate Rentals decided to make a Christmas donation to this project, thanks to all of you!

In Lalitpur all is well. In the video, meet the two girls Nirasa (9) and Sabina (5) we are sponsoring trough Pifworld. They are at Vajra Academy since September 2009 and have adapted very quick. Both girls are doing very well and they like the school a lot. Their school results are also very good. In this video Nirasa introduces herself to you.

They are both playful and happy, but also a bit shy as you can see on the video! In this video Sabina introduces herself to you with the help of her teacher.

The Vajra Academy is situated about 15 km south of Kathmandu in a quiet and fresh surrounding. Central Kathmandu is very polluted As you see we have a solar system on the roof. All,the food is cooked by steam from this system. We have also a bio gaz insatllation, fed by our school cows and also by the children ...

Education

Problem statement

Sabina Khadka (age 5) and Nirasa Sinchiuri (age 6) are intelligent girls from two poor and lower cast families. Their families are living in remote areas near the Tibetan border, about 150 km north of Kathmandu. Their schoolteachers asked Vajra to support these girls. The girls are already admitted to the Vajra Academy as of June 2009. The costs of the first year are covered till June 2010. To give them proper education they need support for another 4 years.

Goal

To give these 2 children, Sabina and Nirasa, the opportunity to be educated during at Vajra Academy.

Main activities

Our main activity is of course to look for sponsors and or ambassadors. This project seems a challenge especially for schools. Teachers and school classes can combine social activities with more educational goals, like learning English and facing the problems of less privileged children.

External risks

Political instability is still a risk factor, but the political situation is improving slowly. Our Nepali partners have managed to continue most of our projects during the last 5 years, which were very difficult.

    Let's go against Ebola! Although the time that I thought Micheal Jackson was pretty cool is two decades ago, I must admit that he isn't so Bad at all. He didn't frighten me with his Triller album, the real frightning stuff came later on, as we all know. But it is exactly the period between the mentioned albums that he hit the charts with 'Heal the world, '. This was 100% corny stuff, but the message was clear: make it a better place! So, tho come back on this motivation issue, let's follow this Wizzard of Oss and make the world a better place. With Pifworld it is so easy! Good luck with Playing it Forward!

    Just help a little and the world will change. I think that if we all play it forward thousands of people will have a better life. Imagine: you and your friends realizing a real school in Uganda. Or maybe you and your soccer-team building a corridor for elephants. Everyting is possible.
