Last week went by quickly again.
At first we had a really warm welcome at the LMV school. We got to meet all the children and even filled in a class of a sick teacher.
We also got to meet a few people at kuart (kathmandu university school of arts center for art and design). We got a little tour around, and saw an exhibition of the students. It was very impressive to see what they are building up again after the floods from a month ago. Also we got an invite to do a workshop next month.
Further on this week Amber was taking place at a ‘Let’s Read! project’ from the Asia Foundation, while Marleen was doing a lot of research for the mini-library project.
Let’s Read! empowers underserved communities to build digital libraries in their own languages and enables even remote populations to access books via mobile devices and print options. *If you would like to read more about the Let’s read project click this link.
At the end of the week we took an 8 hour trip to Pokhara to take place at The Innovation in Education Fair. The Innovation in Education Fair (IEF) is a forum for educational professionals to discuss how to make the teaching and learning practices in Nepal more engaging, meaningful, and memorable for students and teachers. We got to meet a lot of people and help out with the creative workshops.
Next week more!
