School/Village Profile of Haku and current situation
Haku is a VDC that consists of nine wards perched on a hillside, a 4-hour walk from Dhunche, district of Rasuwa. It is a Tamang (Janajati community) village. All 9 wards of Haku (total of 751 families) suffered immense damages due to dry landslides caused by the earthquake on 25 April 2015. At least 58 people lost their lives, 95% of the houses were destroyed. The local people are farmers and their source of income is substantial farming. They have lost their properties including schools, health post and houses by earthquake.
Among nine wards of Haku, Sano Haku is a small village consisting of 94 families with the population of 448. There is a primary school in Sano Haku and there are 106 students studying grade 1-5 (primary level). And the families of all students are farmer and their economic condition is very dior. Sano Haku is deprived of a sufficient number of educated individuals, only about ten have completing school level education. Due to economic conditions, 60% of students discontinue study and out of 40% who completed primary education, more than 75% family cannot afford for further secondary education.
In other hand, this school is run by Government and there is lack of qualified teacher at this school. And available teachers are not qualified enough for English language and because of poor English language it became very hard for student for further study. Hence, English language teacher for this school is essential. It will be help to broader development of kids.
