“Everyone has the right to education.” What is written in the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” adopted by the United Nations on 10 December 1948, also applies to Niruta Hamal, Puspa Raj Shahi and Khom Bahadur Shahi 74 years later. The three teenagers live in the small village of Rama, in Humla District, far in the west of Nepal. And like all children and young people, they have dreams for their lives. Dreams that will probably be shattered without education. Thanks to “School up – far west“, two new school buildings are now being built in their village with your donations.
“Previously, we had a thatched hut with clumsy dark rooms,” says 13-year-old Niruta, who is in fifth grade. “In the past, during the months of June and July, whenever there was thunder and wind, we had to carry our bags and return home due to fear. After building this concrete structure, we hope to regularize our classes and enjoying reading.” Niruta is especially excited about the new separate toilet for girls “that saves our time for study instead of going far distance in bushes”.
Support for underprivileged children in Humla
Khom Bahadar, is also looking forward to moving into the new classrooms as soon as possible. ” Since last year, we have been studying outside on the ground where we have encountered numerous challenges,” says the 13-year-old, who is in the sixth grade. For example, classes are canceled when the weather is bad. Hearing that another building will be constructed soon has greatly enthused and encouraged me. We appreciate the support of Nepalhilfe Beilngries for underprivileged children in Humla.”
14-year-old Puspa Raj expresses similar sentiments. Still excited after their teacher showed them the plans for the new buildings, the seventh-grade student says, ” How long have we been waiting for the safe buildings inhibit from the upcoming monsoon, thunder and massive wind blowing! We hope that you will give us more encouragement in this regards to fulfill our dreams.”
