The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is moving forward, we are now focused on making the program available to underprivileged and marginalized youth of Nepal. As a part of this new initiative we are launching a pilot project to involve the Government schools in the Award program as well. We recently visited two Government schools Shree Shringery Community Secondary School and Shree Gamvir Samudra Setu Secondary Schoolbased based on recommendation from Rato Bangala Foundation. Both the schools were really excited with the prospect of running the Award in their schools and the positive impact the Award will have on their students. We will be running the program in one of the Government schools in Lalitpur metropolitan city to evaluate the impact of the program in Government schools and hopefully have the program incorporated in more Government schools around Nepal in the coming years.
