EWN Updates

The GOAL program continues at Shree Krishna and Gyan Bhumi secondary schools

EWN has successfully completed the “Be Yourself” module from the GOAL curriculum at Shree Krishna and Gyan Bhumi secondary schools in Pokhara. At present, we are running the “Be Healthy” module where we have covered topics such as Body Image, Menstruation and It Could Be Worse. This module helps students to feel comfortable with their bodies, learning about their health, such as menstruation, nutrition, and to be more proactive to lead a healthy life. Additionally, we collaborated with Human Rights Film Focus Nepal (HRFFN) to make the Wall of Hope program available at the Shree Krishna Secondary School to inform and educate students about violence. Over 60 students participated in this session.

Multiple sports – such as badminton, volleyball and football – have been used.
