रमेश लामा बन्ने रे !

Dec. 17, 2015

उसको आमा उनीहरूसँग बस्नुहुँदैन। बाबा धेरैजस्तो मेलातिरै ब्यस्त। चार दाजुभाइमध्ये रमेश कान्छो। यो सब बाटोमा सरले सुनाउनु भयो। तर मलाई अझ बुझ्नु मन थियो, रमेश किन लामा बन्न चाहन्थ्यो ?

मधेसको चिसो मा चलिरहन्छ - "माइ कमिन सर?"

Dec. 16, 2015

सुरुमा भुकम्प, त्यसपछि बर्षाको बिदा र लगत्तै लामो बन्दले यो बर्ष खासै पढाई राम्रो भएकै छैन। बल्ल खुलेको स्कुल, बिहानीमा मात्र खुल्छ, त्यो पनि यो शीतलहरको बेला । "नखाउँ भने दिन भरिको सिकार, खाउँ भने कान्छा बाबुको अनुहार" भनेझैं भएको छ ।

Little Scientists

Dec. 15, 2015

I was amazed to see all that these little creative geniuses had made. I was so excited to see a handmade truck, dhikki, a fan and many many more. And of course The Excavator, and even more excited to see that the excavator actually lifted sand from the ground.

Horizon of Transformation

Horizon of Transformation

June 24, 2013

For majority of my aale-aangas(younger brothers and sisters) science was the most difficult subject. I first tried to remove this mental barrier from them. I narrated some science stories. I related science with the animals and plants they see everyday. I related science with the physical realities they observe everyday.

इतिहास पो थाहा पाउँनु पर्ने रहेछ

Nov. 22, 2015

दुःख गरेर हामीलाई पढाउँनु हुन्छ । हामी पढछौँ । पढाइ सकेर जागिर खोज्न लाग्छौँ । सोचे जस्तो जागिर पाउँन पनि गाह्रो हुंदो रहेछ । सबैले अनुभव खोज्दा रहेछन् । बोल्ने देखे लिएर लेख्ने सिपसम्म । तर बिडम्बना हाम्रो शिक्षाको । हामीलाई राम्रोसँग तर्क गर्न पनि सिकाउँदैन रहेनछ । हाम्रो शिक्षाले प्रतिशतको दौडमा छोडदिन्छ । हामी पैसा कमाउँन दौडिन्छौँ । यो दौडमा राजनितीलाई अर्कै मैदानमा राखिन्छ । हामीले नदेख्ने गरी । किनभने हामीलाई आवश्कता नै छैन् ।

My Fellowship Experience, So This is What It has Been

Nov. 18, 2015

It is with that renewed energy you enter the class, take matters into your own hands and tell kids this is how things are going to be, this is how we will learn.
You find your own space, you find a rhythm.

गर्ने शिक्षकले नै हो

July 7, 2015

हो, सार्वजनिक शिक्षा क्षेत्र अस्तव्यस्त छ। शिक्षा व्यावहारिक छैन। शिक्षा क्षेत्रमा प्रदूषित राजनीति झाँगिएको छ । एउटा शिक्षकको रूपमा ती ठूला ठूला समस्या समाधान गर्न सम्भव छैन। त्यसको लागि सरकारबाटै पहल गरिनुपर्छ। तर यही प्रणालीमा एउटा शिक्षकलाई इमानदार भएर काम गर्न कसैले रोक्दैन । र, सयौँ शिक्षकहरूले गरिरहेका पनि छन्।

मेरी हजुरआमाको “ठुलो मान्छे”

Aug. 12, 2014

सिभिल ईन्जिनियर भएतापनी ठुला घर हुनु, चिल्ला सडक हुनु वा लामा लामा पुल हुनु मात्र बिकास हो जस्तो मलाई लाग्दैन । बिकास त मानिसको मन, मस्तिस्क र हृदयमा पनि हुन पर्योा नि ।

सपनासमेत देख्दैनन् गाउँका विद्यार्थी

सपनासमेत देख्दैनन् गाउँका विद्यार्थी

Sept. 15, 2015

‘सपना साँचो हुनका लागि तपाईँले सपना देख्नुपर्छ’  गरिब परिवारमा जन्मिएर भारतको ११ औँ राष्ट्रपति बनेका वैज्ञानिक एपिजे अब्दुल कलामले भनेका थिए। देशमा परिवर्तन गर्ने जोशजाँगरसहित विद्यार्थीहरुलाई पढाउन गाउँ छिरेका हाइफाइ युवा त्यतिखेर अत्तालिए, जब उनीहरुले देखे, गाउँका विद्यार्थीहरु त सपना पनि देख्दा रहेनछन्। ‘क्लासमा तिमीहरुको सपना के छ भनेर सोधेँ, केही छैन’, काठमाडौँबाट ११ किलोमिटर टाढा रहेको ललितपुरको डुकुछाप गाविसको गणेश माविमा पढाउन पुगेका २८ वर्षीय जलन महर्जन भन्छन्, ‘उनीहरुको त केही सपना नै रहेनछ। अझ शिक्षासँग सम्बन्धित सपना त सून्य। पढेर के गर्ने भन्ने नै छैन।’

During the Maoist insurgency, private school that I was studying was closed forcefully and we had to move to a government school. After I was moved to the public school, I experienced the disparity in the quality of education between the private and public school. Since college textbooks are all in English, I - similar to most students who come from government schools found it to be very challenging and frustrating. One question that always runs through my mind is, “why is there such dispa...

While I was finishing my Masters degree in Germany, I learned about Teach For Nepal and I started exploring the possibility of working as a Fellow after I completed Masters. Scrolling through the website, I learned many things about the education system of Nepal and I got inspired by the stories of senior fellows. It was challenging for me to decide to come back to Nepal to become a Fellow, but after talking to team members of the organization and knowing the multiple aspects of this fello...
