Quake-hit students get stationery items

Kathmandu, January 24

Campaign for Educational Awareness Nepal recently distributed educational materials to more than 1,000 students studying in various community schools in the Kathmandu district.

According to President of CEAN Santosh Subedi, the educational materials included bags, exercise books, geometry boxes and colour boxes.

He said, “Many children lost their stationery during the quake, so we decided to distribute them to the needy students in the district.”

Subedi said they had started the distribution of bags and other materials soon after the quake and are still distributing education materials to needy students.

He stated that they had already distributed 1,300 bags with stationeries in 40 schools on the outskirts of Kathmandu, including Suntakhan, Alapot, Sankhu and other areas.

He added that Gaushala-based Hindhu Swayamsewak Samaj Sangh had provided the bags and stationeries to CEAN. “We still have 200 bags containing 12 sets of exercise books, one geometry box and one colour box in each bag.

We are planning to provide them to the quake affected children in Sindhupalchowk district.”

CEAN has been supporting poor, disabled and orphaned students under their Educational Support Programme.
