Chepang: Food programme for the school and winter clothes for the children

Since spring 2022, we have been supporting the Shree Praja Jyoti School in the Chepang community in Ghyalchowk by funding an English teacher.

During our visit in October 2022, it quickly became clear that it is difficult for many families to feed their children. The children come to school hungry and their concentration and motivation are correspondingly low. They often stay away from lessons.

Since January, the children have been receiving a full meal of rice, lentils and vegetables every day before the start of lessons. The caretaker does the cooking, assisted by a mum from the community. The necessary utensils have been purchased.

A meal before school motivates families to send their children to school. The children are also more motivated and can follow the lessons better when they are full.

During our last visit in October, we were also concerned about the children’s clothing, especially in view of the approaching winter. Every child was provided with warm clothes and shoes. In a large-scale operation, children’s clothes and an additional two blankets per family were humped into the village in a half-hour march with the help of the local population. There was plenty of excitement and cheerful activity during the distribution. The people are extremely grateful for the support.
