We want to give an honorable and special mention to our Ambassador in Nepal, Vidhan Rana, who works with The Santi School Project!
Here is an entry that they posted about their WRAD activities on their website:
The Santi School Project will be celebrating the World Read Aloud Day on March 9th with more than 200 students in the remote hills in Sindhupalchowk District in Nepal. The event aims to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another, and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology.
The Santi School Project will be organizing the days events in eight schools that we work with in Ramche Village Development Committee in Sindhupalchowk. Last year LitWorld reached out to 40,000 participants across 35 countries for the first ever World Read Aloud Day.
Santi School Project is a 501-c(3) registered non profit organization registered in the United States working on promoting quality education for children in rural Nepal since 2006. We first started out with a goal to build a school in a remote village in Nepal where the children did not have the opportunity to go to school. In 2008, the school was built and we continue funding the school’s operation. Today, we are engaged in renovating and providing infrastructural support to other schools in need across the country and also help provide quality early childhood education training to primary school teachers.
