Children Program Experiential Learning (EL)

EL Fourth Quarter Begins

On January 20th, the Amics del Nepal’s Experiential Learning (EL) project started its fourth quarter at the Activity Centre. This session particularly focuses on women’s rights, providing the students with an opportunity to analyze and develop a critical perspective regarding the topic. Thirteen students from grades eight and nine are participating in the session, demonstrating their curiosity to learn more about the social norms and gender stereotypes faced by women.

The initial session began with fun activities to energize the students, fostering teamwork, collaboration, and social bonds among the students. The students actively shared their knowledge and perceptions of women’s rights and their importance in the present generation. This was followed by a basic introduction to women’s rights, preparing them for the learning journey that followed. As the class progressed, the students watched a movie centered around gender stereotypes and prejudices against the women of society. To enhance the engagement, the students also reflected on the movie, applying their critical thinking skills to visually represent some challenges faced by women in Nepalese society. They shared their observations on various gender stereotypes depicted in the movie and explained their chosen concerns related to women’s rights. These sessions take place every Saturday at Amics Activity Centre guided by theme-based activities. Like every quarter, the fourth quarter’s session also embraces the purpose of making learning fun with activities and encouraging students to be creative and think more critically. The upcoming EL sessions will continue to focus on women’s rights, helping students understand the difficulties faced by women in society.

This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics del Nepal and the collaborating partners:
