Changes in nabuur school in Nepal

It is challenging to make changes in community schools in Nepal but it is possible if we follow the participatoatory way of implemention of projects in community.

Dear all
Here I have posted two photographs related to imporvement in our parnter school in Gamauli and another one is problem due to windstrom in neighbouring schools in Nepal. I think we are really able to make changes in Krishna Primary School in Gamauli and now the students are really advance and responsible in that school. Parents have started to work with teachers and help improving the facilities in school.

Education is the only solution to poverty and population growth

A CD holds 650 MB. The Bible is 1.4 MB. Therefore, a CD holds 464 copies of the Bible. A DVD holds 3,000 copies of the Bible. A dual layer DVD holds 6,000 copies of the Bibles. A video DVD holds 10 hours of video and a dual layer video DVD holds 20 hours of video. Just imagine what would happen if every school in the bush of Africa, the jungles of Latin America and the mountains of Asia had a computer and DVD library to use for teaching and training.

DVDs should be loaded with educational materials: books, videos, Bible studies, etc. The internet is not necessary and is expensive in some areas. People can study for hours on a computer [home, office, cybercafé, etc] using DVDs. 7B people on earth and 2B cannot read [400M in India. 2M in the USA] but they can be educated using video/audio DVDs. Use HTTrack website copier [free] to download websites into computers and on to DVDs.
All computers and laptops operate, internally, on 12 v. Those without electricity use a computer, internally altered, to operate directly on 12 v. from a battery with a solar charger [email for instructions] or a pedal-powered generator. This opens up a whole new way to teach. Thousands of DVDs are available on hundreds of subjects and many are free.

Nations University, nationsu.org: University courses for degrees. Arabic, Chinese, English, Español, Farsi, Français, Portugués. Free outside the USA.

School in a Suitcase: http://winministries.org/website/index.php/nation2nation, a religious group, has hundreds of schools in many countries; over 100 in Cuba. A person with a computer [operating on 12 v.], printer and DVD library can travel from place to place, on a schedule, to teach and train people. This is a very simple, inexpensive, effective way to educate children, youth and adults Use a bicycle or a bicycle and trailer for transportation.

School in a Backpak: A nomadic tribe in Uganda is using a tablet PC, portable projector, camcorder in a solar backpack, 5m x 3m roll of white PVC banner (screen), to train people in farming. Cost is US$1100. In some places a laptop PC, without the projector, could be used.

Mobile schools:
Vietnam: Computer literacy is a luxury. The Dariu Foundation provides computer training to kids in remote villages using a mobile school equipped with computers, internet access and access to e-library containing DVDs in agriculture, animal feeding, etc. Not only kids but clients benefit from this school.
