WHAT IS BHAGYA BOKNEY JHOLA?
‘Bhagya Bokney Jhola’ is a Scholarship Program under Better Education initiated by Better Chitwan Campaign so as to support students with poor economic background who can’t even afford a bag to carry study materials to School. Many political changes have been witnessed in Nepal but the education standard could not bring remarkable progress. Most of the remote areas of Nepal do not have access to quality education and many students do not afford education because of their poor economic condition.
Manisha Magar is studying in Class Seven at Shree Sundari basic School, Kumpur, Dhading. She has two little sisters studying in the same school. Manisha wants to be a teacher in future but since her family background is very poor she could not afford stationary materials and a bag for her school. She has to look after her sisters and help her mother with her daily works.
Asmi Mahato is studying at Divya Jyoti Basic School, Khairehani -13, Chitwan. Her father is an alcoholic and doesn’t have any source of income for his family. Her mother is suffered from neurodevelopmental disorder. But still she has a strong desire to be a good person in future.
Manisha Magar and Asmi Mahato are just example. There are many such students who can’t afford a quality education due to poor economic condition. Bhagya Bokney Jhola is our small effort to support those students with a gift of School Bag including stationary materials.
As ‘Bhagya Bokney Jhola’ is a student based scholarship program, the target groups we focus on are students with very poor economic background.
The program supported 17 students on first phase and is now supporting 27 students on Second phase. We aim to support 100 such students from different government schools of Chitwan and neighboring districts.
