Where we start our work !
Dailekh is a very backward district adjoined with the Karnali region that ranks 63 numbers out of 75 districts in the overall development indicator. The poverty-deprivation index goes further down ranking 66 out of 75. In a new state restructuring, it falls in Karnali State. Per-capita national budget allocation is lowest among the districts. Literacy is still very low in which the share of female literacy is only 32 percentages. Still 23 percentage of children are illiterate. We also aim further to extend our work in the centre specially for lobbying and academic discourse.
‘Rupantaran Nepal’ has already started to distribute books in different schools. Thanks to all the publishers, individuals and friends who encouraged us for this mission. We are also working to initiate the ‘Rural Scholarship’ for talented students who are studying in public schools in rural areas. They could have also a beautiful future like your children studying in advance educational institutes in Nepal. Just your small help can make a different future of one child in rural Nepal.
Similarly, ‘Rupantaran Nepal’ appeal to all of you to contribute one book for rural schools. You may contribute a book or cost of the book. You may go to the bookshops of Kathmandu and buy a book and drop into our donate box. If you are abroad, you can buy it there and send directly to our office address. There is off limit if you want to donate more. It will be a matter of great appreciation if you could convey this message to other friends to help one more book. There will be our list of books the most needed in rural areas. You may put your signature or stamp on the book as a donor reference.
To mobilize the resources from different community, we have set the possible category of contributors and our recognition of them for their great support. As a part of fund collection we are also accepting the new or second hand computers/laptops from organizations and persons to provide computer learning opportunities in rural schools.
Apart from this we want to organize ‘support campaigns’ in villages, towns and schools. We expect to bring awareness among urban communities to inspire them that their little contribution can make a difference to the rural community.
