Spielend lernen

Schuluniformen, warme Kleidung und Schulmaterialien bedeuten für bedürftige Kinder viel, aber nicht alles. Ein Grund für uns von Back to Life, warum wir auch Schulen aus- und aufbauen, Sanitäranlagen errichten, Klassenräume ausstatten, Bibliotheken einrichten und Lehrer weiterbilden. Denn eines steht fest: Bildung ist wichtig! Aber auch emotionale Erziehung spielt eine große Rolle. Unser Einsatz dafür: Spielplätze. Erster! Rupkala, eine Erstklässlerin, ist morgens schon fertig für die Schule, bevor das Frühstück bereitet ist. Aber erst, seit es den Spielplatz an der Schule gibt. „Ich...

Eine Schulzeit voller Experimente

Back to Life richtet ein Schülerlabor ein Die Thakaltar-Schule in Chitwan bietet Unterricht vom Kindergarten bis zur 10. Klasse und bald bis zum Abitur an. Das ist eine Seltenheit in einer ländlichen, armen Gegend wie dieser und bedarf deshalb besonderer Unterstützung. Back to Life ist ein langjähriger Partner der Thakaltar-Schule. Wir arbeiten dort seit 2015 und haben die Transformation von einer schlecht ausgestatteten, von den Erdbeben 2015 zerstörten Dorfschule zu einer der besten ländlichen Schulen im Distrikt zusammen mit der Gemeinde vorangetrieben. Im März war es an der Zeit,...

Dreams come true – lessons up to high school graduation

School building is a focus of our project work in Nepal. We aim to create new grades where there is a lack of secondary schools. Back to Life already turned to the school in Thakaltar (Chitwan) after the earthquake in 2015, as they could no longer use part of the building for school lessons due to the damage. We added a large, two-story building with … classrooms to the two smaller, undamaged buildings. Built earthquake-proof and equipped with tables, benches and monitors to enable modern and effective teaching. At that time, 292 students attended the school, the only one far and wide...

Expanded – the path is free up to 8th grade

Back to Life has been supporting the Janajyoti School in the Chitwan District, near the Chitwan National Park in southern Nepal, since 2010. The school is located in a village that is characterized by deep poverty. The Chepang people who live there are among the poorest minorities in Nepal. That is why we support the families with, for example, scholarships for school children, school meals, health care, access to clean energy and income generation. In 2016 Back to Life rebuilt and equipped an earthquake-proof school building with two classrooms, which was previously destroyed by the severe...

School clothes make the man

Steep and dusty trails, protruding branches on the long, winding paths through the mountains, muddy holes in the ground, snowfall, downpours and high mountain sun – there are many challenges for the school uniform of the children in our project areas. Often the uniform is their only intact set of clothing and is also worn after school. On all important occasions anyway. The families are too poor to buy summer and winter uniforms and shoes for their children. In the past, the requirement to wear a school uniform prevented countless school visits. Back to Life changed that. The students...

Protecting the environment through the hands of children: interacting child clubs

Sometimes the youth clubs we have initiated in our project schools exchange ideas or meet for sports competitions. The best ideas can come from this. Ideas become more when they are shared After a visit to Piple, Chitwan, southern Nepal, the girls and boys from the neighboring Thakaltar were deeply impressed. The village of Piple and its paths were so much cleaner than theirs! So one child club sat down with the other. The people from Piple presented their solutions for a clean village. And the youth from Thakaltar asked a lot of questions. Back in Thakaltar, the plan was quickly established....

The magic of letters

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE – ADULT ALPHABETIZATION We are improving the school and learning conditions for over 4500 schoolchildren in Nepal. But we don’t want to stop there, we also want to take care of the literacy of adults in remote areas. According to the “Nepal Human Rights Year Book 2019” (INSEC), the literacy rate in Mugu is only 51.25 percent. This includes all school children, which means that the adult illiteracy rate is significantly higher. But how do you go about giving the already hard-working adults extra hours of learning? First, we set up a varied program to...

With us, teachers also go to school – further education

A teacher in Nepal is respected in the village but earns little. In the remote areas in particular, teachers are often not well trained, not only professionally, but also pedagogically.

We will introduce you to optimized teaching methods and show you various options for interesting and informative lesson design. Action plans are drawn up together, which you can implement directly in your own lessons. The preparation of descriptive teaching...

Because it can happen again and again – earthquake safety training for teachers

30,000 classrooms collapsed during the devastating 2015 earthquake. The devastating earthquakes of 2015 claimed almost 9,000 deaths in Nepal. But it could have been hundreds of thousands more: The first quake was on a Saturday – the only day off of the week from school. On any other day, the schoolchildren in the 30,000 collapsed classrooms would have been killed by the masonry and the number of victims would have skyrocketed. The earthquake safety training courses aim to ensure that teachers and children are prepared in the event of another disaster. That is why it is important for...

Proper hand washing needs to be practiced – Global Handwashing Day

“Global Handwashing Day” has been celebrated in schools around the world since 2008 to make children aware of the immense importance of daily hygiene. Because only when you wash your hands thoroughly with soap for at least 20 seconds are bacteria effectively combated. This significantly reduces the risk of fatal diarrheal diseases, and early childhood development is less disturbed. Stella attended the school in Thakaltar in Chitwan and, together with our team, showed the children how to wash their hands properly. The students had a lot of fun and were happy to demonstrate what...

Better now than never – adult literacy

“ because I always felt as if I were blind. “ When we expanded our project radius in Mugu to the communities Seri, Kalai and Rara and their neighboring villages from 2011 onwards, we found that most adults – as in many parts of Mugu – were illiterate. 1202 people over 15 years lived in the mentioned villages and their surroundings. 918 of them could neither read nor write. In an area where most of the school-age children did not attend school, our main focus was initially on being able to offer a larger number of children a regular school education. To this end, we...
