Situation in nepal
Providing access to education
School uniforms are a prerequisite to attend school in Nepal but unfortunately many families cannot afford to buy them. Having a school uniform can provide children the necessary access to education and many wear the uniforms the whole year round. New uniforms are needed regularly as the clothes are often quite worn out after one year and the children grow so fast.
Additionally, lots of public schools in Nepal, especially in the rural areas, lack heating and the classrooms are cold due to missing or poorly insulated windows. Therefore, the school uniform is helpful to stay warm when the temperatures decrease during winter.
Help students to attend school regularly
Winter is coming, and many students are in need for new uniforms soon. This year, we aim to provide 900 winter school uniforms for preschool children and students from grade 1 to 10 in six government schools in Okhreni, Tharebir and Suntakhan. One school uniform costs around 10 euros. With just 53€, you can provide 5 students with new uniforms, help them attend school and stay warm.
Ongoing support has increased student numbers
Since 2015, Long Yang NGO together with Akasha Academy NGO has been supporting the health and education of young students in Gokarneshwor region. Through ongoing support for the schools in the region, for example with the school uniforms, significantly more children can receive education. The number of school children in some schools has almost doubled thanks to the support.
News on winterclothing campaign in recent years
Many schools in Nepal, especially in the rural areas, lack heating and electricity. We have provided more than 850 new warm school uniforms to keep the young students warm during winter.
For another year in a row, Long Yang e.V. together with Akasha Academy NGO was able to support hundreds of pupils in Suntakhan with warm winter uniforms for the cold season.
Akasha Academy NGO together with its German partner organization Long Yang e.V. could again organize the purchase and distribution of warm school uniforms in November 2019.
