MEP students win Art Competition

On the auspicious Buddha Purnima Day (21 May, 2016), an Art competition was held in Pharping with the joint sponsorship of Wai Wai Noodles Company and Paradise Creative Link. Students from 7 different schools located in Pharping area were invited to draw what they liked.  All entries were judged by the group of professional artists from Lalitkala Campus, Kathmandu, and a higher institute for learning arts.

 

The participating schools were

Cardinal International Boarding High school,

Shikharapur Community School,

Green Hill School,

Setidevi School,

Pharping Madhyamik Vidyalaya,

Tribhuwan Adarsh Madhyamik Vidyalaya and

UDC (A school for the monks and nuns).

 

6 students were invited from each school, with 2 students from junior class (students from class 2 to 5) and 4 students from senior class (students from class 6 to 10).

 

From Cardinal International boarding high school, 6 students were selected. Out of the 6 students, 3 students were from our MEP hostel (The Manjushri Educational Project).  They are Dawa Dindu Sherpa (junior class 4) and Tsewang Jimmy Hyolmo, class 8 and Khando Sherpa, class 7 (senior class).

 

At the end of the competition, our student, Dawa Dindu Sherpa (Class 4) was awarded won the third position for the junior class. The first and the second positions were awarded to Dawa Sherpa and Pema Tamang respectively.  Both the winners were from UDC.

 

From the senior group, our MEP student, Tsewang Jimmy Hyolmo (Class 8) was awarded the first position. The second position was awarded to Ram KC from Tribhuwan Adarsh Madhyamik Vidyalaya and the third position was awarded to Rojani Balami from Green Hill School.

 

The criteria for judging was based on several aspects, including the style of drawing and choices of colors, the drawing itself and the concept of the drawing. The drawing by Tsewang Jimmy Hyolmo fulfilled all the requirements and was selected as the winner of the competition.

Completion of Phase II extension of the hostels for the students

We started the Manjushri Education Project in 2012 with the aim to empower the lives of children in Nepal through education. Since then, our project has touched 75 lives.

The above would not have been achieved without the support of Firefly Mission, a humanitarian organisation based in Singapore. This tremendously charitable organization has supported MEP to build two more blocks of reinforced concrete hostels and a block of two adjacent classrooms for MEP. The construction was completed in April 2016 and a opening ceremony was held on April 2. With the extension of the blocks, we are able to sponsor up to 100 children.

 

There have been many challenges along the way. One of them included the 7.8 magnitude earthquake last year which killed over 8,000 people and injured more than 21,000. Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened across many districts of the country.

Since the earthquake last year, MEP has also partnered with Firefly Mission to carry out the critical relief work, which included the provision of temporary shelters, freshly cooked food, temporary schooling, gas stoves and tanks, zinc sheets for construction of homes.

In addition, Firefly Mission and MEP sponsors have also sponsored a mass screening for hepatitis B and vaccination for students, villagers and the monastics. To date, we have vaccinated 1,121 people, out of which 1,075 are children and 31 of them are receiving regular treatment for Hepatitis B.

13043214_1191673674184191_3813459905752116499_n We would like to thank Firefly Mission and all MEP sponsors for their generous donations and supports for the Relief and Rehabilitation project.

 

MEP#RebuildNepal

The Manjushri Educational Project (MEP) helps poor Nepal and Bhutan children to improve their lives by providing quality education. Started in 2012 by Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche with his students volunteers, MEP provides food, education and shelter for 78 children in Pharping Nepal, until the earthquakes happened.
The school and the temple compounds are used to provide hot food, hope and first aids for every possible way to make lives easier.   Manjushri Educational Project Nepal has employed another teacher to provide in-house teaching so that learning can continue even if the school is disrupted during this period.  We are taking in more children too.
MEP#RebuildNepal are collecting contributions to help rebuild homes in Nepal.  Although our children and monastics are saved, most of their family homes and villages are destroyed. We will be using our existing Manjushri Educational Project network and system to collect relief funds for rebuilding homes in Nepal destroyed by the earthquakes. We target to provide 500 roof top at about USD 100 each.
The MEP#RebuildNepal will continue to operate under MEP as a separate set of accounts, as this is an ongoing mission to rebuild homes of the needy. We are also glad that MEP Bhutan is not affected and ongoing.

Please donate via Paypal at this site (http://manjushrieducational.org/) or contact Robin Chan (chantw1@gmail.com) if you wish to help.

Khenpo Namdrol was born in 1953 at Dege Tibet. At the age of seven, in 1959, he fled Tibet and have been teaching Buddhism in India, China and many parts of the world.   In 1998, under the guidance of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, Khenpo Namdrol established the Palyul Retreat Center, Samten Osel Ling in Pharping, Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Khenpo now spends much of his time at this center, as well as teaching abroad and at the institute.

2014 New Recruitment – for new sponsorship

We have recruited 8 new case histories of children who are given admission to Manjushri Educational Project this year. This children are from Himalayan region and come from poor background.
Please let us know if you wish to help to support their education and food.

School Results of our MEP Children

Summary of results of the MEP Nepali Students:
Out of 31 students, except 1 student failed, all the students are passed with very good results. They have improved very much as we go through their results. I am very happy of their tremendous improvements. The 10 students obtained very good percentage and topped in the classes. This time, the Principal of Cardinal International Boarding School, has waived the tuition fees for these 6 students.
  • Regarding the failed student, with consideration from the Principal, he would be attending in the same school this year to repeat. The Cardinal School has waived the school fee for the year. And from our part, we have to pay for examination, stationeries computer fee and uniform.

New admission for the year 2014:

This session(year 2014), we have sellected 7 children from Himalayan Region of Nepali citizenship, come from very poor family back grounds, but these children are very good in their studies. We will send their case history very soon.
