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.

Meet Sabina
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.
Meet Nirasa
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.
Sabina and Nirasa
These two girls are from two very poor families living in the Himalya. Their schoolteacher has selected them to go to the Vajra Academy, so they will get the chance to be educated . Our Pifworld project supports them for the coming 4 years.

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.
