OLE Nepal’s Relief Effort for children at Kirtipur, Khokana & Bungamati
With an aim to help children stay positive and engaged during the times of disaster, OLE Nepal has started its relief effort at Panga in Kirtipur and Bungamati and Khokana in Lalitpur. After conducting thorough research on most vulnerable areas for the children within Kathmandu Valley, OLE Nepal team identified designated Child Friendly Spaces which can be used to help children continue their learning process.
Amidst all the chaos, we at OLE Nepal are particularly concerned about the welfare of thousands of children who have been affected in more ways than one – distressed, displaced and completely traumatized by the scenes of devastation all around them. In such situation, it becomes absolutely important to keep the children engaged, playful and active without affecting their mental status.
In Panga, we are conducting our sessions in two centers located at Navajyoti Primary School and Janasewa Higher Secondary School. Likewise, our session in Bungamati and Khokana is also divided into two and is running in child friendly spaces in different school areas. OLE Nepal volunteers Sabita, Sabrina, Saugat, Sawal and Peter are managing these sessions in the field.
OLE Nepal is planning to carry forward the relief effort in many places as possible. Click here to read about our relief effort in Tudhikhel.
