What a great way to begin the new year! CPCS has provided the children with brand new calendars. One of the many issues of Nepal’s educational system is the lack of school supplies especially after the 2015 earthquake when more than 5,000 schools have been damaged and many books disappeared. Schools in Nepal were woefully inadequate even before the quake, and the country’s literacy rate of about 66 percent is among the lowest in Asia.
CPCS tries to counteract these issues by providing classes and basic school supplies.
The children were enthusiastic about it!
