Lakure Bhanjyang, some 13km north of Gwarko, and lies in Lalitpur district. Although very close to the capital, it can be considered as one of the remote areas in Nepal due to lack of easy transportation to the place and due to its economic state. The village mostly comprises of Tamang people and very low literacy rate. Basuki Ma. Vi is the only one school in the region. it have been running with supports from various individuals and organization. it has for the first time produced SLC graduates . Out of 16 students, all 16 of them made it successfully in the very first year; five of whom passed in first division and the rest in second division.
According to Mr. Rajan Chand, the number of S.L.C appeared student/pass out was the highest this year and that is 16. And that too was possible because the school had recently added its secondary level and before this, the students had to walk 1-2 hrs just to go to secondary school. This was also the main reason for student dropout after primary level.The dropout rate from the school is also high as the children go to higher level. The reason being, getting busy in household work, getting married early and running away(especially girls), having to work as a labor to sustain the family etc. The economic condition of the people there is very poor. Only some of the people have access to a better income generating activities but a majority still relies on small cheap labor work.
Binod Thapa Magar, Central coordinator of HMS state that, “However, after SLC graduate, being a very poor community – these students are finding it hard to continue their education further following economic hardship. Parents of those schools already want them to start earning money -as they cannot afford to send them to school themselves. Hence there is a pressure on the students to drop out of school and engage in economic activities – further jeopardizing their future.”
The funds are being collected from the HMS Australia chapter, the members of HMS-Australia, along with their friends help, together has worked for the fund collection.
