Breaking Barriers: Janaki Rural Municipality Builds First-Ever Separate School for Girls
Date: 23 April 2023
Janaki Rural Municipality, Banke has built a separate school for girls for the first time, Nepal Rastriyab Girls Basic School, to bring female students into the mainstream of education.
The Nepal Rastriya Basic School in Ward No. 3 Manpur has been transformed into Nepal Rastriyab Girls’ Basic School to give female students access to education in Janaki Rural Municipality. In the last academic session, the school had 281 students, most of whom were girls. However, 100% of the girl students in Janaki did not have access to schools before. Therefore, the new school is expected to attract female students who were previously unable to enroll.
The establishment of a separate girls’ school aims to make female students’ education more systematic and accessible. The chief administrative officer of the village, Sinharaj Dangi, stated that the school was established to promote education for female students.
The school will no longer allow male students to enroll, and it will now teach up to class 6. To attract students, the school has brought new programs from the new academic session. Additionally, the school will provide free transportation services, school uniforms, and educational materials free of cost to female students.
Krishnakumari Bhandari, the education officer of the education, youth, and sports branch of the rural municipality, said that the new school will be more organized and extended to the secondary level by adding more classes.
Conclusion: Janaki Rural Municipality’s initiative is a significant step towards bridging the gender gap in education and empowering women through education. It sets an example for other regions to follow suit and invest in education for girls.
