Project activities

TTQE focuses on training teachers in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal with the goal to ensure that children have better opportunities in life through an inclusive, high quality education.  The program has supported capacity building of over 1700 teachers in 300 schools and enhances the quality of education for around 30,000 school children in Solukhumbu, with an expected far reaching impact on the broader community.

The program also provides education support to marginalized and vulnerable children who for various reasons may not be attending school. In 2016/17, this educational support enabled 550 students to attend school, including children with a disability.

Project outcomes

In 2017/18 the following outcomes were achieved:

  • 20,264 students in 239 schools benefitted from the program.
  • 1,569 teachers benefitted from mentoring and training.
  • 196 schools received support with educational resources.
  • 8 schools received training, materials and mentoring in early grades literacy improvement.

Together with continuing the capacity building of the rural school teachers on improved teaching practice, the project piloted the development of Namuna or model schools. These schools reported increased motivation and accountability of teachers and committees.  Parental engagement is increasing.

An early grades literacy program in Nepali language commenced in 8 schools. Training teachers was supplemented by appropriate learning materials and intensive follow up.  The average learning achievement in Nepali language in the past year increased dramatically by 12.46% in these schools against the district average of 59.24%. Model schools and literacy improvements will be expanded to more schools in the next year.

Project feedback

Ms. Keshari Shrestha is a grade 3 teacher in Nepal.  She received training from the project and said that

“The literacy improvement program is really effective and showing early results. Children are more engaged and enjoying learning. They are also becoming closer to the teachers and confiding their interests and worries as teachers work individually with them.”
