Renewed interest in learning
While most children are able to recognise all the letters in the alphabet by the age of five, many primary school age children in Nepal are falling behind due to the lack of books and guidance at home. As a result, as many as 25 percent of children do not complete primary school and 20 percent of children repeat Grade One (Ministry of Education, 2014). World Vision is addressing this in Nepal through a comprehensive programme referred to as ‘Unlock Literacy’ that complements the National Early Grade Reading Programme of the Nepal Government. An important aspect of this programme comes in the form of a reading camp, a community-inclusive intervention that enhances learning outside of school.
