1. Project Summary: Schule macht Schule runs a small boarding school in Jharkot, 3550m above sea level, just 30 minutes walk from the sacred site of Muktinath. Classes are given in cooperation with the public primary school in Jharkot.
There’s not much of quality learning materials there – so having some laptops will increase the quality of teaching. Even in offline use: the English offline wikipedia would take the place of the library we don’t have.
English teaching is done mostly by our regular volunteers, who go there for periods between 6 weeks and 6 months. The laptops will support their teaching immensely, because one of the problems they have to face is that the children in each class have totally diverse learning background. So you have to do individualize teaching even more than you’d do in more developed circumstances.
Another big thing will be the chance for the kids to learn the use of computers before they leave for further education, so they will have a better start there (by the way, we keep in touch with them, guard them and mostly also support them financially until they stand on their own feet).
2. Project Location: Jharkot, Ward No.4, Muktinath 33107, Mustang (April till November; Winter school in Pokhara, Chorepatan. There’s no heating up in the mountains, no medical treatment etc. during winter)
