Raksirang Rural Municipality in Makwanpur has initiated school enrolment drive for children of the impoverished Chepang communities.
With the objective of providing education to all, the rural unit launched the campaign at Silinge-based Rastriya Madhyamik Vidhyalaya on Tuesday. The stakeholders took out a rally and urged the parents of the children of school-going age to send their wards to school.
Earlier, a joint meeting of the elected representatives of Wards 6, 7 and 8, chairpersons and headmasters of 16 community schools of the area decided to enrol all children of school-going age this academic session. The meeting decided to launch a door-to-door campaign with the help of teachers, school management committee members and local leaders so that no children are left out.
“The rural municipality will bear the expense of those children whose family are not financially sound,” said Raj Kumar Malla, chief of the local body. He said the school enrolment drive would be conducted effectively in Khairang, Sarikhet and Raksirang-the major settlements of Chepang soon.
