Rainbow Volunteer Club in December 2017 conducted a survey of community schools of Bhotekoshi Rural Municipality, Sindhupalchok district. During the survey, it was found that most of the community school students of Bhotekoshi Rural Municipality of Sindhupalchok district had no appropriate and adequate notebooks in their school bags. According to school teachers, children of 6-14 age groups leave school every year because these students have to face problems to acquire school materials required to get education and in most of the families the voice of the younger children are often unheard.
In most of the rural school’s pre-primary classes in Nepal, learning materials and toys are scarce and quality of stationary is extremely poor. Children in schools have very limited resources and often their bags have no basic needs for the school. In Nepal to join the school for most of the rural children is common, and continual school study is always uncertain. The situation of children in Nepal shows that they have been exploited as a practice of our society. It is often common that schools have no measure to fulfill needs of students like stationeries even for students of kindergarten or children from poor and marginalized families.
After the 2015 earthquake in Nepal the friendship border of Kodari has been completely shut down. As a matter of fact, the trade of the Zhangmu region of the china was suspended and had not yet resumed. Hundreds of people had lost jobs and the markets are deserted. Due to the pathetic conditions of deprived families who previously dependent on Nepal-China trade and worked as porter or a driver it had been a serious challenge to afford the school spending because of which intelligent and ambitious students get miles away from the school education.
