#93109 Seed of Change

Posted by Yadav on 08 February 2014 - 08:52 AM in Members Profile

Seed of change is a project aimed to reinforce the role of young people with fewer opportunities in their access to social rights by the means of non-formal education has been launched throughout the eight cities around the globe. One among the eight cities, Kathmandu also had its inception of the project from the September.
 
It is funded with the support of the European Commission. This project is launched globally throughout eight countries four countries from European continent consisting of host country Italy, Spain, Lithuania and Greece and four countries from other corner of the world consisting Nepal, Argentina, Kenya and Colombia.
 
The project focuses specially on urban youth with fewer opportunities and from disadvantaged background empowering them by the non formal education with their active participation in different activities like Gymkhana comprising, active video research, traditional games, access to job workshop, art workshop, advocacy campaign, peer education and international youth meeting.
 
With the theme of empowering disadvantaged youth by the non-formal education, aware them about their social rights in a participatory approach and activity based research, seed of change is seeking for the change in disadvantaged youth of Nepal. Worldwide Nepalese Students Organization Nepal had undertaken the responsibilities for this project for the Nepalese disadvantaged youth.
 
It will call for 20 main participants under the age of 15-20 years from different disadvantaged neighbourhood to carry out the activities designed for them. Along side this project not only aims to empower few youth but also could benefit the society and community with 331 other indirect beneficiaries, as they will be participating in various activities along with the participants benefitting the community to realise about the opportunity and equality for all.
 
This project provides an opportunity to one Nepalese youth to have an international voluntary service in Greece for one month as a youth exchange program and will be sharing inter culture exchange and youth practices. Also, it has provided an opportunity for four youth and one youth worker to attend the international youth meeting to be held in Palermo, Italy at the end of the project to represent their country.
 
Seed of change is comprised with the intention to contribute recommendations regarding the youth policies, in the way non formal education contribute to awareness and fulfilment of social rights for young people from disadvantaged background to the government of Nepal. It also lights on the development of the good practice guide as an outcome and experience of the gymkhana activities.
 
It expects to sow seed of change and create differences in the lives of people; also it yields four major products as good practice guide on gymkhana, video on social rights, photo album about the entire project to disseminate in the public and recommendations to the government about youth policy.
 
It has a participatory approach towards the youth indulgence to aware their social rights, fight against poverty and exclusion and to make them actors of change to make equal society which can guarantees their social rights in any social and economical crisis.
 
Nepal under the political instability and fresh in federalism and public consciousness has not been able to execute the guarantee of social rights, neither it has been able to channelize the disadvantaged youth as skilled manpower of the country. A void has been created to achieve their dreams and their reality. Thus this projects aims at least to aware and empower fewer urban youths from the disadvantaged background uplifting their personal status in terms of ability, skill and social rights.

#93106 Plights of Nepalese students abroad

Posted by Yadav on 08 February 2014 - 08:39 AM in Comments/Feedback


Pravin Chhetri, had almost forgotten that he had paid hundreds of thousands of ammount to the consultancy when he got visa. But After reaching London, college asked for money with him again. Consultancy had cheated on him by not transferring money to the college.

Pritam Shrestha of Pokhara had applied in one college of Ireland paying 5,500 Euro (Almost 6 lakhs and 21 thousands NRS). But his visa was rejected. Both college and consultancy hesitate to give his money back. He got his money back a year after, taking legal action.

Himal Kandel of Butwal has gone to study in London, in the Tier 4 visa. His college was blacklisted for not fulfilling requirements. He had to return back to Nepal without completing his degree. Aforementioned are just a few instances about how students are being cheated by educational consultancies in Nepal. Some consultancies also mislead students by saying, their people will come in abroad to receive students, they will take care of their dwellings initially, also help them to get jobs, etc etc.

It's normal for students to aspire for the international degree to keep the pace with global demand. Each year thousands of Nepalese students go abroad for study purpose. During 2067/2068; 11,912 had applied for 'No Objection Letter' from MOE( Ministry of Education). Lots of student had gone to London during Tier 4 visa rule to UK. Those students are being unable to utilize the opportunity of abroad-study nicely. Instead of studying, many students are doing jobs listening to others. It makes their abroad stay more complicated. They have to use negative means for visa and admission. They not only are
wasting a lot of money, sometimes they are also obliged to use the illegal means.

In Nepal, consultancies are even applying on behalf of students, with the fake academic documents. Some students who are doing so might be rejected before they get the visa. And those who get the visa will
have to get lots of tortures in abroad. It also creates negative images to the overall Nepalese students. There are some incidents of Embassy taking police actions in accusation of applying with fake
documents. The academic performance and their talent is all what it takes to get scholarship abroad, still consultancies are misleading the students wittering they can help them to get scholarship.
Consultancies can do absolutely nothing in the University admission process, scholarship application and Residence permit or visa Moreover, good universities want students to apply themselves instead
of using third party or agencies.

Every universities and colleges have their own criteria for the scholarships. Nowadays many colleges need 'Application Essay' for admission, with which they are examining the motivation level and
intention of student. That application essay should be written with regards to the previous experience of particular student. If students make other write essay for them, that could sound fake and off-topic.
It can have negative impact on admission and scholarship process.

In the visa process no country entertain any clouts. All information for visa process is available on the web page of specific country. And if students ask anything about visa to the embassy in their email,
they will reply in no time. If students cannot use that, it's the weakness of the student themselves. Rajendra KC (studying in UK since 10 years) says "We are wasting hundreds of thousands of money, for
the things which we can do ourselves free of cost."

  1. Students should have idea about, which country they want to apply for?
  2. What are the minimum requirements of the subjects they wish to study?
  3. What is the reason of choosing specific subject?
  4. Which university is best for the course they want to study?
  5. What they need to have for the scholarship?
  6. What is the admission criteria?
  7. How is the visa process for corresponding country?
  8. How is the job opportunity? etc.

If the students get the correct and reliable informations by themselves they don't have to face much hurdles in abroad too. A post-graduate student from Wageningen university Sita Batha Magar says
"It's very rare to get students exploring about their further study themselves in our case. They can take information from the students who are already there as well."

Foreign students are taken to benefit their country in most cases by many nations. There are lots of criteria and polices for the international students and most of the times they are in favour of native students. The rules are often being changed for international students. Some students fall in problem, when that country moves the goalpost. Currently working on UNFAO, Magar adds "We are underpaid because of our weak legal ground here. Forget about college tuition, that salary cannot cover even the food costs."

Students admitted in colleges with low tuition fees especially in UK and Australia experience such hurdles more often. Colleges with poor infrastructure, unmanaged examination system and which curricula is
not of university standard can be closed any time during regular government check up so students need to be aware of such things. Consultancies in Nepal are using such college as the stepping stone to
send students abroad anyhow and make boatloads of money out of that. So the series of suffering of Nepalese students is not stopped yet. 587 students were deported two years ago in Australia in accusation of
taking negative advantage with student visa. Among the deported ones, most the the students used to be absent in college, failing frequently and working against law.

Student who is fully committed to study and who completes his application by himself/herself, is doing really great as well. ECAN chairman Rajendra Baral said "Students who are on scholarship are less
likely to fall into troubles, but if the student's intention is work; that's is going to be the problem." And students who run out of money and starving students are not getting effective assistance from
government agencies and also from NRN. Student residing abroad for 2 years is only considered NRN so new students are not getting proper assistance from NRN.

#93099 Non Formal HRE in Higher Secondary Schools proved as innovative activi

Posted by Yadav on 08 February 2014 - 08:27 AM in Events

Worldwide Nepalese Students Organization (WNSO) Nepal’s activities in the framework of Non-formal Human Right Education (HRE) approach among peer students at the Higher Secondary Schools and Disable School has been proved as an innovative program to promote the Human Right. The main themes of the activities were anti-discrimination and human rights education aiming to contribute to create a culture of peace and human rights for all and to enhance active participation through volunteering in schools and colleges. The program has been continued for 5 months at schools level in 2012 by the direct facilitation of Nepalese and European volunteers. The methodology of the HRE was in the framework of the non-formal education and peace education approach whereas experiential learning, cooperative learning, active participation, learning by doing were main components. Local stakeholders reported that the series HRE non formal activities strengthened the broad understanding of human rights and fundamental freedoms among students and helped to promotion of understanding, tolerance, gender equality and friendship among peers. The positive impact has observed in term of enrichment and diffusion of knowledge, skills and values of human rights issues and being aware about new aspects they were not before among the peers that increased competences to deliver HRE activities and new knowledge about human rights among students.
 
The beneficiaries of HRE clubs have been operating the HRE clubs by their self efforts and disseminating the knowledge and skills among other peer students. Continuation from the beneficiaries after phase out and extending in grass root level is the prime factor of sustainability and replication of program- concerned experts said. Solely focusing the young people and students at education institutions to disseminate and promote the value and knowledge of Human Right is quite relevant in the present context of Nepal. It’s relevancy is further high when Nepal has been facing different types of severe human rights violation at different segments of people life, for examples, freedom of expression, voices for social inclusion, women and child rights, gender based violence, civic roles and responsibilities for peace, unity, cultural of peace and respect etc. The program was implemented in collaboration with CEIPES and Youth in Action Program supported by European Commission. It is likely the first program in Nepal by its approach and volunteering model of HRE in non formal education framework at schools and college level.
