“I Tuned in Daily for Radio Classes”
At HPF, we have remained committed to one thing during the lockdown – securing our students access to quality education. In Nepal, we have conducted lessons through a radio program and distributed self-learning material in collaboration with Unicef & Save The Children. In Nepal many of our students have been able to return to a completely new school after the lockdown. We currently have 8 ongoing school constructions and 3 more will initiate in March. We have asked several children how their learning experience has been during the lockdown. Pawan who is a graduating student at Birenda Secondary School in Nepal, stated the following about his experience:
“It was on March 24th the government declared lockdown throughout the country and cancelled my examination. As the SEE examination is considered a major gateway for one’s own future career, I was taking this seriously and preparing well. My ambition was to pass the SEE with good scores and become a doctor thereafter. The announcement of postponing the exam less than 12 hours before start made all of this seem wasted. At times where everything was all closed and we were completely isolated from our teachers and friends, HPF started to broadcast an English Radio Program. I tuned in daily for radio classes. It helped me to prepare well for the examination. As a result, I secured a 3.6 GPA which is above 90 in percentage.”
We are so humbled and grateful that we have been able to find ways to continue our students learning in Nepal through our close collaboration with the Kavli Trust on our quality education program.
