ECCA improvised the common game materials of Nepalese children with the messages on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), specifically for the purpose of educating children on WASH and motivating self-learning through entertainment.
A set game materials (dice and snake & ladder) was distributed to Gogandanda Primary School and Jagriti Primary School located in Tamakoshi Rural Municipality (around 150 km north of Kathmandu in Dolakha district in central Nepal). The teachers and students were also oriented on how to play these game materials. They played these game materials during orientation to understand the concept of WASH and they found the games interesting and knowledgeable.
The students thanked for the support and shared “We never had any game material in our school earlier. Now, we can play these games during our leisure time”. Because of the availability of the game materials, the students love to go to school.
We thank you for your support.

Solar lamp distribution
By Prachet and Ashmita - Team Leader and Officer
As there is no electricity supply in ward 13, Rapti Municipality, Chitwan district, Nepal, ECCA planned to provide solar photovoltaic lamps in a phase-wise manner. As per the plan, in the first phase, solar photovoltaic lamps were distributed to the active local youths and women group representative. The lamp has benefited them and their family in their daily lives and more importantly during their late night travel or preparation while conducting various programs in the villages. Basic level sensitization was done by ECCA regarding the use of the provided solar photovoltaic lamps.
They are thankful for reducing health hazards due to the replacement of kerosene lamps with solar lamps.
ECCA is thankful for your support.
Your contribution will help us support improving the living standard of rural communities.

It's a time for action
By Ashmita Rai - Assistant Program Officer
There are so many barriers to adopt menstrual hygiene practices on the basis of: awareness, acceptance and access even in educated and well facilitated areas, then imagine what it is like in other parts of the country. This imagination has led ECCA to initiate various approaches on the way to cope with the barriers in various districts of Nepal since 2008 to bring change on the negative social norms with regard to menstruation and also empowering girls and women to uncage their educational and economic opportunities.
As we are celebrating Menstrual Hygiene Day 2020 (on May 28, 2020) with the idea, “It’s a time for action”, it’s really a time to create a world with dignified Menstrual Hygiene Management and collectively, we can!
