We have enrolled a total of 15 new students from three government schools (grades six, seven) in Amics’ PBL Children Program for the new academic year 2079 (2022/23). There will be 10 students each in PBL6 (for grade six) and PBL7 (for grade seven) including the old students. The students’ enrollment was conducted in February and March where we visited three government schools near the Activity Centre (Chabahil & Boudha area) and explained our program to the children and school representatives through presentations and meetings.
An orientation meeting was conducted with the selected children and their parents on March 12 at the Activity Centre. In the meeting, we introduced our new Amics Grant scheme, and discussed the Children Program, its benefits, and activities intended towards the overall development and growth of the participating children. The PBL and Amics Grant Agreements were also signed by the parents and the children.
The Amics Grant is an education development and support initiative of Children’s Home/Amics del Nepal (AN) provided to the selected beneficiaries studying in grades 6 till 10 from government schools, and further studies where various educational, financial and other support are offered to the beneficiaries at different phases in order to promote their educational, health and livelihood development. The Amics Children Program focuses on bridging the gaps by supporting children belonging to disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds who mostly attend government and community schools.
Based on observations and participation level of the attendees, the parents and the new students were very happy and excited to begin a new journey with Amics del Nepal. Henceforth, 10 new students of grade six will be enrolled each year in the Amics PBL project from government schools in the community.
This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics de Nepal and the collaborating partners:
