Activities through Strengthening Child Club

The major objective the program is to create opportunity to children for education. BFN has strong idea about its project which gives value to children by supporting the children and schools to invest for better future of children. This program has two dimensions. Initial we support children from ultra-poor family to enroll them at schools. The children get stationery, bags, shoes and uniform which is the basic demand of each schools. This small support is enough to enroll the needy children to attend the schools and enjoy the rights to education.

Child Clubs mobilization is another component to explore the internal talents of each child and create a wide range of platform for their physical and mental growth. The extra activities are promotional events supported by the organization. We manage the prize distribution and motivate children for their meaning full participation in extra activity outside the class rooms. Girls and small children are benefitted highly through this sort of activity.

SCHOLARSHIP SUPPORT TO NEEDY CHILDREN

This activity covers the needy children of government schools. Children from poor community are not able to get educational materials from their parents. This cause low performance in classroom and drops out. The reports show still over 5% children are out of basic education.

We coordinate with school management to identify such children and support for their educational materials. A total of 470 children of different schools were supported to ensure their rights to education. The children were provided with school uniforms, bags, shoes, note books, pen pencil box etc.

INTRODUCTION

Baba Foundation is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit, nonpolitical organization. It was established in 2009 to care children and environment. It is registered in Kaski District and affiliated in Social Welfare Council. It is determined to support for quality education to children increasing inclusiveness and access. The acute poverty is a barrier to achieve basic education in rural Nepal. Although the basic education is free and no cost is required for enrollment. However, the poor parents would not send their children to school unless the stakeholders conduct enrollment campaign. Children needs bags, stationery and uniform and certain amount for examination charge. Therefore, Baba Foundation is supporting the children for schooling to ultra-poor children to ensure the rights to education.
Another factor for weak learning achievement is linked with poor infra structure, the traditional teaching and learning process, low political commitment and governance are the major hindrance in our education system. Therefore, child friendly classrooms, furniture, availability of drinking water, proper sanitation and use of technology is the priority of the organization which would gear up teaching and learning.  The organization facilitate to increase the participation of youth introducing their rights and responsibility and increasing their skill and knowledge through extra activities at school.
Another major thematic concern is environment protection and waste management. The organization prioritizing local resource to minimize the trend of exporting foreign aid so far.  We have local products and good relationship with stakeholders to enable for local resource, volunteer, and fund raising.
