Bhairab Prathmik School Project

Keeping up with the mission to support the formal primary education in government schools, Daya Foundation has been supporting Bhairab Prathmik Primary School located at Dhulikhel. Bhairab Prathmik school is one of the oldest government schools of Dhulikhel. The students of the school mostly come from seasonal migrant families from Sindhupalchowk, Sindhuli and nearby districts working in brick factories and other low paid labour works. Health and nutrition of the primary students is of a major concern. Daya Foundation has been providing nutritious midday lunch for the students since 2010 in the school. We are highly encouraged by the decrease in absenteeism of the students after the midday lunch program has been initiated. The foundation has also been supporting eye and dental check up of the students through annual health camp at Dhulikhel. To develop early reading habits of the students, the foundation has also contributed a set of 91 new publications of children's books graded with reading levels for primary classes. Likewise, we have been supporting to develop and upgrade the library of the school.
