The HE Space Children’s Foundation has now been supporting the “School to school” project in Nepal, initiated by Tineke Roegiers in 2019, for 3 consecutive years.
Our colleague and project starter Tineke Roegiers said she is “very happy to see another year of support for this project in Nepal where CEPP [our Nepalese partner organisation], with support from a Belgian NGO Bikas, addresses the full community around the school.”
Our partner organisation on the ground, the Centre for Educational Policies and Practices (CEPP), favours an holistic approach: it aims to strengthen the ties within the community, encouraging parents, school management committees, headmasters, teachers, and students to work together, all the while offering continuous support to all parties involved.
The main goal of this programme is not to build schools or to improve school infrastructure, but rather to create a happy, child-centred educational environment. The Children's Foundation support is used to fund a mix of essential activities; training for teachers, follow-up on digitization, organising meetings for parents and upgrading the classroom, playground and providing support for the plant nursery.
