Gender Equality and Disability
Social Inclusion form integral components of REED-Nepal's multifaceted
approach. Recognizing the importance of equal opportunities, the organization
strives to dismantle barriers and promote gender equality. By addressing social
and cultural norms, advocating for inclusive policies, and empowering
marginalized communities, REED-Nepal aims to create a society where every
individual can flourish and access quality education.
Learning and Life Skills development
lies at the core of REED-Nepal's holistic approach. Beyond academic knowledge,
the organization recognizes the importance of equipping children with essential
life skills. By providing practical and innovative learning opportunities,
REED-Nepal nurtures resilience, critical thinking, creativity, and other skills
vital for personal and professional success. REED-Nepal also endeavors to
create conducive learning environments through CFS (Child-Friendly School)
Construction. By constructing safe and child-centered school infrastructure,
the organization ensures that children have access to quality education in
nurturing surroundings. These CFS initiatives aim to provide an inclusive and
empowering space for children to thrive.
Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene
(WASH) initiatives form an essential part of
REED-Nepal's comprehensive approach. Recognizing the direct impact of WASH on
health, education, and overall well-being, the organization strives to improve
access to clean water, proper sanitation facilities, and hygiene education. By
creating WASH-friendly schools and communities, REED-Nepal ensures that
children have a healthy and hygienic environment in which to learn and grow.
Through its dedication to these key thematic areas, REED-Nepal envisions a
future where all children have the opportunity to thrive, breaking free from
the shackles of poverty and illiteracy. By working hand-in-hand with local
communities, stakeholders, and governments, REED-Nepal is building a brighter
and more prosperous nation.”
Child Protection &
Safeguarding is another critical thematic area where REED-Nepal has made
significant strides. Recognizing the vulnerabilities faced by children, the
organization champions their rights and endeavors to end the injustices that
perpetuate illiteracy and poverty. By advocating for child protection policies,
raising awareness, and providing support to vulnerable children, REED-Nepal is
fostering a safer and nurturing environment for all.
Integration of Information and
Communication Technology: To transform and enhance the teaching and learning process, REED Nepal has been integrating ICT to mitigate the digital divide and provide equal access to all vulnerable students. Teachers have been trained to effectively use ICT tools and resources in their classrooms, and guide the students effectively. For creating interactive and engaging learning experiences via incorporating multimedia & simulations, REED is utilizing online educational resources to supplement classroom learning and flipping the traditional classroom model. By reviewing the content for discussions, projects, and activities, students are being encouraged to collaborative learning and use different online platforms; assessments, and feedback to tailor the discussions as per the same, and leverage technology to provide personalized learning experiences and global connections. We also have been supporting infrastructure development for inclusive education and empowering both teachers and learners to make the education system more engaging, personalized, and accessible.
Build Back Better: The "Build Back Better" (BBB) has been associated with post-disaster recovery and resilience building and focuses on quality education for all vulnerable children. As part of the BBB approach, investments have been directed toward improving educational infrastructure, including the construction and renovation of schools, libraries, and school fencing. Realizing accessible and safe physical learning environments, BBB is promoting digital inclusion by ensuring that schools have access to modern ICT infrastructure and resources: online and blended learning, making education more accessible, especially, during the COVID-19 pandemic as well. Through teacher training, curriculum enhancement, resilience, disaster preparedness education, and removing barriers for vulnerable children to have access to schooling, the BBB approach is advocating for safe spaces, access to SRH education, mitigating SGBV, and so forth. Build Back Better approach has significantly been contributing to achieving SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 5 (Gender Equality) by addressing the infrastructure, curriculum, and inclusivity needs of the education system while also promoting gender equality and empowerment.
