Khilang village is a 7 hour walk or 3 hours on a bus from the nearest tarmac road. It is a remote village in the Himalayas, in the Kaski District of Nepal. There is a primary school (up to Class 8) and an Early Childhood Development (ECD) centre. In recent years, successful improvements have been made to the primary school with some support from NGOs such as Global Action Nepal and with financing from a variety of fundraising events and from Khilang people who have relocated abroad. To date, there has been no support given to the ECD centre and no additional training provided for the ECD centre staff (2 teachers).
Children at the ECD centre are aged between 2-4 and attend the ECD centre prior to joining school. Children spend all day together in a small hut, with very basic facilities. Further training will help the teachers to become more resourceful and to better meet the children's needs. Provision of basic resources will improve the quality of care and education offered by the ECD centre for the children.
I am currently arranging training with local ECD trainers for the Khilang ECD staff. We hope to include other staff from surrounding villages in this training. During the training the participants will be asked to provide a list of resources which they need. Money raised will pay for the cost of training, food and accommodation provided by other villagers during the training (for those coming from elsewhere) and for resources to be provided after the training.

Looks like the training should be going ahead at the end of July, during the monsoon season in Nepal as this is when ECD centres and schools are closed and would be the least disruptive time for children and families. The aim is to ensure that the training is as child-centred as possible and that prior to the training there is a 'needs assessment' conducted by participants to ensure that the training matches their needs and helps support them in areas they find challenging.

Shyabash Becci. This is a very worthwhile project, and one very dear to our hearts. I am so happy that the very young children in Khillang Village will get the very best start in education.
