The Bakteshwori Primary School in Manakamana, Gorkha District is a small village school, which teaches children from classes 1-3. These children come from very poor families and would otherwise be unable to receive any schooling. FVS had arranged the sponsorship for a much-needed additional teacher.
Like many small village schools in rural Nepal this school had virtually no books for the children, or teaching aids. When we bring books & supplies, the children are often in awe and pass them around respectfully as if they have never seen anything like this before.
The above photos are from a visit to Bakteshwori Primary School where we donated reference & picture books for a library, and notebooks, pencils & other school supplies for the children. We also took some time with the students initiating an inspiring sing-along, teaching them cleanliness habits, manners, kindness, etc. through action songs.
