Maha Shivratri

Literally translated as “the great night of Shiva”, Maha Shivratri is a Hindu festival celebrated in honour of Shiva on the end of winter and the beginning of spring. This year, Maha Shivratri takes place on March 1st. Kids and staff celebrated this auspicious day in the centers of Dolakha and Godawari. There are many legends associated with why Maha Shivratri is celebrated. One suggests that it marks the day when Shiva married Goddess Parvati, while another says that it was the night that Shiva performed the heavenly dance of creation, preservation, and destruction.

Final exams

The exam period is now over in Dakshinkali basic school, in Kathmandu. Bags were distributed by municipality to the most successful children across classes.

The last terminal exams took place in Shree Singha Devi and Sahid Smirti basic schools, in addition of routine general health check-ups. It is also the case for Shree Janata secondary school. In Shree Siddhababa secondary school, in Sindhuli, children were taught about how to properly wear masks and wash hands properly just before winter vacation.

BHCA program efficiency

After the 20th parents meeting in Kutidanda and BHCA team encounter in Godawari, the BHCA program is becoming more efficient. Indeed, the BHCA program introduced Child right and Child abuse awareness classes, as mentioned in the new calendar, in the center of Kathmandu. About 75 children improved their mind on these sensitive topics. In parallel, in Dolakha, children prepare themselves for their second terminal exam and get hygiene checked, while others spend their holidays at CPCS, playing games and reading books.
