Amir, Zoe and Lin were pleased to attend the BRANNGO conference on Education in Nepal on 30th October. The successful event was a place to meet members of other small charities and gain from the excellent presentations organised. Current practices within education, the issues and how everyone can enable changes for the better was actively discussed. With the new government still developing policies there remains uncertainty but key is the enhancement of teaching practice through developing better teachers, increasing quality in the classroom, ensuring access for all and developing a workforce which will remain in Nepal and develop their own very special country.
GDS involvement in small Teacher Training programmes in rural areas is an excellent example of raising standards of the very limited training current teachers receive. Thanks to Laxmans incredible efforts and energy and the involvement of volunteers this is an area we wish to progress.

BRANNGO (British and Nepal NGO Network) was launched earlier this year with the aim that the many small UK based charities working in Nepal can learn from each others experiences share good practice to enhance services provided to those most in need.
