Some of the current issues in primary education in Nepal:
Parents are too poor to pay the costs of better education Many parents, although still not all, see the importance of better education. However, they cannot afford to send their children to private schools. At village schools we see many children without books, notebooks or even pencils.
Children do not have access to drinking water at every school Summers are really hot in Nepal. Moreover, many school buildings have a tin roof underneath of which temperatures rise to a maximum. Without drinking water children fail to concentrate. Especially in the nursery and kindergarten classes we often see children simply sleeping with their heads on their desks.
And many problems are facing the education in Nepal, yet as kids most of them remain extremely happy and energetic !
