Junkiri Planet - a first big milestone for us!
"Junkiri Planet" (Junkiri is Nepali for "firefly") is the name of our newly purchased and opened school in Tilottama near Butwal. The school teaches students from the neighbourhood and shall soon take in street children and underprivileged children as well.
That way, Junkiri Planet is the basis for all our future plans, projects and ideas and we are very looking forward to the journey to the firefly-planet and even further than that.
Currently, the school is being renovated and prepared for the re-opening after the lockdown. All schools in Nepal have been closed since March.
At the same time, the teachers are going through
teacher-training programs according to our teaching style philosophy.
