Every child should have the right to development, but children living in remote mountainous areas and slums in Nepal have fewer opportunities to access to education, and some children drop out of school voluntarily or passively.
Every child should have the right to development, but children living in remote mountainous areas and slums in Nepal have fewer opportunities to access to education, and some children drop out of school voluntarily or passively. Children who drop out of school become neglected, marginalized and socially excluded. Children who drop out of school are more difficult to engage in skilled jobs due to their early entry into society; at the same time, due to lack of learning and education, their ideas and concepts are outdated; in addition, without school safety management, some children (especially girls) are more likely to suffer abuse, child marriage, and child labor and unequal treatment.
There are many reasons for dropping out of school, among which family poverty and lack of educational resources are the important reasons for the high dropout rate of children in basic education. In addition, in the mountainous area of Nepal, due to imperfect infrastructure, children travel long distances to school and may encounter some potential dangers, such as crossing rivers without bridges, and narrow mountain roads with cliffs beside them. Parents do not let their children go to school because they are worried about the safety of their children on the way to school. Based on this basic situation Rainbow Volunteer Club (RVC), started to carry out the Nepalese Children's Schooling Plan in 2015. The project aims to give special attention and support to children who may be at risk of dropping out of school, understand the reasons in depth, and formulate strategies to solve the problem.
After conducting a survey on children's education in local villages, Rainbow Volunteer Club (RVC) conducted publicity on the importance of education in villages in order to promote local parents and children to understand the importance of education. At the same time, Rainbow Volunteer Club (RVC) reported the problems found in the investigation to the local government, and called on the government to pay attention to the difficulties of children in local villages going to school, so as to improve and adjust the influencing factors behind the problems of local children dropping out of school.
Rainbow Volunteer Club (RVC) also realizes that solving the problem of children dropping out of school cannot be achieved overnight. Therefore, while helping children drop out of school to return to school, it also cooperates with local communities and schools to improve the lack of resources in the local educational environment, so as to promote local education. sustainable development. Specific project measures include providing software and hardware support and teaching tools for multimedia classrooms; providing teaching materials and school supplies for children; dispatching staff and volunteers to provide teaching support; providing teaching content in art, sports, film, language, etc. Ultimately support the sustainable development of children's education in Nepal.
