Support Educational Materials

“You never know when a helping hand will change another person’s entire life”.

Education is the light of the life of each human being so we should get access to education. However, about 40% of Nepalese are still in the illiteracy zone as they are not able to go to school because they cannot afford their educational materials. Such the saddest situation is brought about by the vicious cycle of poverty. In recent years, the poverty rate is climbing up due to the unprecedented spread of Covid-19 and the lockdown imposed by the government to save the life of people. The education sector is one of the most affected sectors in Nepal due to Covid-19. That has worsened the situation of parents even bad. In order to support the needy students, HCH forwarded small steps.

In the first step, a total of 75 students from Janajagaran Primary School, nearby Dhulikhel of Kavre district were distributed school uniforms. In the second step, we provided school equipment that includes computers, printers, and new school bags. If we were able to get generous support of 2000 Euro, we would have contributed to materialize the educational dream of some other needy students, waiting for us, for our support. Would you help us, change a person’s entire life?

600 fruit trees project in Mainapokhari

Deforestation in Nepal has always been a serious issue, which has a severe effect on the lives of poor people. In the past, Nepal was a widely forested nation. However now with the requirement for the extension of rural areas, migration of hills people to the plains, the developing regional interest for timber, and the local residents dependence on firewood as the essential source of energy, less than 30% of the nation’s forest cover remains. Around 70 percent of the people in Nepal work in agriculture, even if it is difficult to farm in the prevailing unfavourable weather conditions.

With our project, we want to improve the quality of life of the local families. We calculated that a total of 10 trees per family will assure a healthy nutrition addition for more then 30 years ! And we plant the trees on hilly land, that is otherwise not used and so we also stop the continuous erosion.

In total we will start with 60 families as we will plant 600 trees. Based on altitude, soil and weather conditions, the following trees were selected :

  • Kiwi
  • Nepalese Pear
  • Avocado
  • Japanese Persimmon (Kaki)

The plants are grown and transported by local companies, planted and nurtured by locals.
