(June 2011) The second annual Educational Scholarship has been awarded to the students from 10 different community schools. The scholarship materials covers one school bag, notebooks, stationeries, one set of uniforms, school fees and admission charges and cash of Rs700/- (seven hundred rupees) each to the 33 students from 10 community schools. Continuing with the students of last year school, Golmeshori Lower Secondary School and Jayebageshori Secondary School are the new schools coming under our scholarship support program for the year 2011. Out of the 10 schools Jayabageshori Secondary school was not present on the occasion and 28 students out of 30 were there to take their scholarships. This scholarship continues every year for the students studying up to class ten if all of the scholarship criteria are meet. We hope the students we are supporting will secure good and progressive marks on every exam they appear and that is one conditions among other for continuing their scholarships. The scholarship (complete educational Scholarship for students studying in community school) costs per students is around Rs 4600/- (US $66/-). This would help students from very poor family who don’t have enough food to get wisdom in life with the light of EDUCATION. We are sure every little contribution is a great help putting together and would request your assistance for providing scholarship to one student.

Women Health Camp Succeeds
(June 6-9, 2011) Four days intensive Free Health Camp on Women health has successfully completed. The camp was organized to provide the health services and awareness to the women of rural village. The patients were very much satisfied with the treatment they got from the qualified doctors and international volunteers of TEAM Nepal. The patients were registered in their home with the help of local health worker staff in seven surrounding V.D.Cs. Apart from those villages many people from Melamchi, Jyamire, Banshkharka, Baruwa and Thangpaldhap were also also present for their treatment. The camp was organized by TEAM Nepal with the assistance of Manamohan Memorial Hospital and Hyalmo Sindhu Melamchi Upatyeka Samajik Utthan Karyekram Sanchalan Samiti (HYOSIMOSA). Dr. Arunmani Dixit of Manamohan Memorial Hospital has said the public has got a quality service as in a Privet Hospital of Kathmandu. He added these kinds of service will help village women to be aware about their own health. Such camp plays important role to reduce the uterine prolapse and other medical problems of the rural people. The President of the organizer Neel Bahadur Shahi said more and more effective programs to make people aware about their hidden dieses will be carried out. The entire program which cost Rs 306461/- was partnered by HYOSIMESA with the financial assistance of Rs 100000/- (one hundred thousands) and 2 way transportation from Talamarang to Palchock to the medical team and Manamohan Memorial Hospital has provided the medical instruments and Doctors TEAM of 9 for free. The totals of 1952 patients were checked in the 4 days camp help in Talamarang and Palchock. Among those checked 1656 were women, 174 Man, 102 Grils and 20 were boys. Majority of the women was having different levels of uterine prolapsed which was treated and given medicines. Some cases was referred to Manamohan Hospital in Kathmandu.
Effectiveness of the Program
Four days intensive health camp organized by TEAM Nepal has benefited directly to 1952 patients from many villages. The most effective part of the camp was to make treatment to the patients and providing them the health awareness and knowledge about importance of medication. It cost little more than three hundred thousand rupees where as the actual benefits were more than Rs 6832000/-. When a person has to make the same treatment in Kathmandu they should at least spend three days of time and about 3500 rupees. Counting everything together the sum of the treatment we made is just around 4.5 % of the individual cost they would have to spend getting treatment in Kathmandu. This way it is very much cost effective.

Women’s Health Camp
|Area:||Sindhupalchock District (About 85 Kms from Kathmandu, north east)|
|Location:||Talamarang Bazar and Jayebageshori Secondary School, Palchock (This area is about 85 kilometers from Kathmandu on the North-East Himalaya. The local populace consists of majority of Tamang People who mostly depend on farming and low category foreign employment, as such due to famine and other factors they cannot afford basic medical treatment.)|
|Background:||The average health services access rate of the country is only 15% and the women’s rate is even lower. Reproductive and maternal health is of particular concern among Nepali women. In rural Nepal, the key role of a woman is bearing children, particularly sons. Early and excessive childbearing weakens women, many of whom die or are chronically disabled from complications of pregnancy. It is not uncommon for Nepali women to experience a prolapsed uterus following birth. The prolapse is often due to recommencing, too soon, the expected workload, which is demanding and strenuous. Often, the prolapse remains untreated for an extended amount of time. Pregnancy is taken as a natural process and God’s gift for which medical care is regarded as unnecessary. In fact, the Human Development Report (1996) reported that only 6% of births are attended by trained personnel. They have been hiding these problems from family or even husband for long time, thus we are united to organize specialized health camp on women.|

Sukumaya Update !
(March 2011) The child home girl (Sukumaya Tamang) who was believed to have been affected with the forest shaman is almost fine now. It has been understood that her main problem was kind of depression. Since she grows older she started to think a lot of things about the life after child home and family may be even the marrying and so many others. Once when Neel had asked her to write about anything she like, she chooses to write the reminder of her passed mother; she was missing her mother very much and had a long story to tell about. We were observing her since long time and every time we see her, her face was not smiling she was unable to open up herself with the rest of the world. She was not curing who is really loving and curing her in absence of her mother. She was almost the victim of depression. We believe and very much sure that this is why she was behaving strange sometime. Now, since Neel and her wife assured for her better future, job and convinced her other mental ways, she was active and also worried about Laxmi, (house mother). She was worried for Laxmi having a lot of works to do and wanted to go back soon to help her in home. Now she has returned home with some herbal medicines and good expectations in mind for the future. Since sita is in Kathmandu for her computer and other class, laxmi has additional responsibility in the home.
(Dec 2010) A new network among the Nepalese and Irish children is on its way to develop. With the initiation of Irish organization DRAIOCHT and the TEAM Nepal volunteers from Ireland, we are going to work together to establish a child network where school children from both the countries would share their thoughts, culture and the feelings being on their land. We have begun the exchange of letters from 48 Irish children and equal number of respective Nepalese counterparts. We are going to offer different children from different community schools to establish the friendship. Ten children are selected for Little Angel’s Children Home and the rest from schools with in our projects. We hope this would help in the good way for those children and would be the best way of cultural exchange and have more knowledge of different traditions each other.
Painted and Perfect Child Home

And it’s representing that the home has a good study environment. With new looks to the home children feel more relaxed and they feel proud on those paintings. Some of them are even interested for painting is same way. The home staff has managed for the complete writing on the home and they seems happy to have more authority and responsibility as well.
