Education fair

KATHMANDU: Embassy of China, China Scholarship Foundation and Arniko Samaj jointly organised an education fair on April 17-18 at Birendra International Convention Centre. The fair focused on the education system of China. The event was also remarkable as students and parents could directly interact with representatives from different colleges and universities in China. Lab Kumar Thapa, president, Arniko Samaj, said, “In recent years Nepali students have shown great enthusiasm to pursue higher studies in China and this fair was fruitful for them. It was an opportunity to know and learn many things about China and the education system there.” — HNS

A brighter future

DHADING: The education programme launched jointly by the World Education Programme, Integrated Community Development Centre and Progressive Youth Group in 13 VDCs of Dhading last year, is proving very effective. More than 1,600 children aged 10-14 years, who were deprived of educational opportunity due to their involvement in domestic work and other sorts of child labour, have been participating in the programme. The children are given education along with necessary educational materials free of cost at 30 different centres.

The programme aims at making the children eligible for enrolment at grade four in a period of three years. — RSS
