June 5 was a bright sunny Sunday. Our informal gathering, “Ramailo
Bhetghat” was called in a short notice through messenger.  At the first sight it looked like whole Surrey dwellers were there in Hawthorne Park Surrey, BC on that very day and there was no room to step in. Any way, we found our spot. Delightfully, every one out of 40 participants had happy time together13346974_1364336370249148_7848677651668053561_n. Different variety of  foods from households, since it was a pot luck, were delicious. Finally, all chipped in for CaN and a small fund was raised. All deserve Big Thank you!

In the end all wanted to have another “Ramailo Bhetghat” soon.

Janahit Project at Shree Janahit Primary School, Simalbasti – 8, Padampur, Chitwan has been revisited by sponsoring salary for two new teachers. Mr. Manoj Biswakarma, Project Supervisor, Janahit Project, CaN Education Foundation personally visited the project to review its activities. His report after the visit has been a key factor to add new blood to the project.

In the beginning, CaN had sponsored 20 students from grade 1 to 5 out of which 13 have left the school with their parents who migrated out of the Simalbasti neighborhood. The foundation  stands on its old commitment to continue sponsoring the remaining 7 students.

The first computer for the students of Shiksha Jyoti Project IMG_20160105_112537has been provided. A computer for elementary graders in Nepali public schools is rare to see. The foundation believes that introduction and access to computer with some additional educational materials helps children to improve their learning.

Anniversary of CaN was marked amidst some friends. Adults

Discussion on the future of the children sponsored by the foundation comes in the end which, actually helps to realize the responsibility ahead for every one. Sense of responsibility also inspires all participants to do more.

School season started and children, as usual, wanted to attend their classes.
School was Red Tagged – meaning no one can go into the building. But there was no choice and no way rambling out side. Children got in but they were gravely distressed. No one was feeling safe.
Inside the broken wall the Children Centre for 23 children had nothing but a green carpet in the dusty room. Only one care taker-teacher also looked too few for 23 children.

Considering the poor situation of those children CaN Education Foundation decided to support and provided little money for refurbishing the room with floor mats, supply of educational materials and toys.

Sanil Ghising, a volunteer of CaN, who worked very hard to do all this has expressed in his report the happiness he saw in the eyes of not only the children but in the eyes of teachers and parents.
We are grateful and express our thank you to all supporters and donors.

New Year 2015 celebration organized by CaN Education Foundation was a wonderful event. I, from the very core of my heart, would like to express my sincere thanks to President Mr. Ratna Rai and his team for such a dedicated effort to present this memorable event. Also, I would like to urge strongly to all the community members to recognize the team’s noble action towards the service rendered to Nepalese children.

Actually we share the same goal of enhancing the education standard of Nepalese students. CaN is helping them to have the basic infrastructure for learning environment and I am making them the learning materials easily accessible through my site

Our motto is not to let any child behind the light of Education.

I wish Happy and Prosperous New Year 2015 to all the members and families of the community.

Thank you,

Indra B. kshattry PhD
