Gamaudi School Project

Gamaudi School Project (GSP) is ECC’s research-based pilot project in Gamaudi VDC Dullu
Municipality of Nepal.

GSP works through many different avenues to create a new method for changing the
standard of education. Instead of just focusing on the classroom, or the school environment,

GSP is a model that brings together teaching and learning, school leadership, school
infrastructure, parents, and the general community together.

GSP works in all 3 primary schools in the Gamaudi V.D.C. This project started in February
2018 and is planned to last 3 years.

OUR SCHOOLS :
Coming Soon

THE CLASSROOM :

GSP’s first target area is the actual classroom. Teachers are getting trained on ATLP which is
ECCs own guide of effective teaching methods. The teachers are learning how to creative an
interactive classroom with minimum materials. They get a set of new materials for their
classroom and then extensive training and monitoring as they try out new interactive
methods.

GSP’s next target area is school management. ECC is working with school leaders and
community members to create school improvement plans, leadership workshops, and long-
term goals for the structure and management of the schools.

The classroom is vital, but influences on education extend far beyond the classroom. HSP
hopes that targeting the community as a whole, will provide a more effective model for
providing quality education in rural Nepal.

Beyond the classroom
Tiffin Box program:

Schools in rural Nepal don’t provide lunch for their students and it is not common practice
for students to bring their lunch. So we will be providing all students grades 1-5 with tiffin
boxes (small metal container) so that they can bring their own snack to school. We will
conduct a training program for parents to introduce this new idea and explain how it will
work.

This project is going to launch at GSP schools in March 2019.  Students go all day from
10am to 4pm without anything to eat. Having something to eat will help kids to focus in
class, and discourages kids from leaving during break time to go and get something to eat.

Also, having a time together where kids sit and eat adds structure and a community vibe to
the school every day.

Beyond the Classroom
School-community Garden

ECC has received a government grant for this program. Starting in November 2018 each
school will begin a small school-community garden. Students will be charged with caring for
the garden, and for the first few years what is grown will be sold to the community to help
fund the school. The hope is that eventually the garden produces enough to help provide
school lunch for the children made on site.
