Dailekh School Project

In collaboration with the Rato Bangala Partnership in Outreach Program, RBF aimed to work in Dailekh partnering with the government at the central and district level. this project seeks to overhaul teaching and learning in Dailekh District at a scale that will touch every family and thus be a catalyst for socio-economic transformation. Through a network of over 72 accessible satellite clusters, the program concentrates on upgrading over 500 government-run schools and training over 1800 teachers in these schools. The aim is to bring government school education in Dailekh in line with the highest standards of classroom practice in Nepal and Southasia, contextualized to local conditions.

The Dailekh School Project is developing model classrooms that are setting new standards for learning in government schools. To strengthen the core activity, the program provides support in terms of teaching material; training for administrators, as well as guardians; building teaching resources; and developing and maintaining learning networks. The final beneficiaries, of course, are the students who will enjoy schools that look out for their overall development into responsible, curious, and creative citizens. The students form child clubs to learn and enjoy activities of their interest. Most importantly, the program encourages the government authorities in the district to take ownership of the work and achievements. This will, among other things, ensure accountability and continuity.

The Dailekh School Program addresses the issue of inclusion directly. Every a primary-age child of Dailekh is a beneficiary of this project, as all the schools are included. No child is left behind, as no one should be. Dailekh is one of the larger hill districts of Nepal, with a high level of poverty in all demographic categories. The focus on government schools ensures that those in the lower class bracket are included, including differentiation according to class, faith, language, ethnicity, and caste.
