CHANCE for NEPAL funded its fourth Skills Training for 2019. The training given by Women’s Cooperative Society (WCS) took place in Bhaktapur, Chhaling on the 2nd August.
Anamika , Shenpen’s Coordinator (one of our partners on the ground in Nepal) attended the first day of four-days advanced vegetable farming training.

Chhaling is a village that is part of Changunarayan in Central Nepal and around one and a half hours drive from the city centre.

There were 30 women attending the training, and all had previously attended the elementary training.
First, they were given a test to determine how much knowledge they had retained from their first training. In some cases, this may have been years ago.

Topics covered on Day 1:
• Understanding unseasonal vegetable farming
• How to prevent the roots of tomatoes getting infected
• The cause of cucumbers going yellow and rotten
• Bacteria in maize crops
• Problems in growing cauliflowers and garlic
• Insects invading crops
• Infection in garlic bulbs
• Potato plight

Instructions of making eco fertilisers, insecticides and making good compost out of grasses and hay, onions and garlic.
At the end of the first day, the trainers gave a test to the trainees to establish what they had retained and a small gift hamper given was given for top marks.
The advanced training will continue to teach about the different soil types, rotating crops as well as marketing and budgeting.
Sharmila, (2nd photo) is 39 years old with one son. She attended the basic training two years ago. Now she felt ready, through her experiences to learn more about different vegetables - marketing techniques – ways to make her business more profitable.
She is able to support her neighbours as well as funding the education of her only son.
She earns 35,500 a month around £270 a month and now hopes to increase this.
She cultivates, tomatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins, radish and garlic on her 2 ropani area of land.

CHANCE for Nepal has been supporting WCS through Shenpen for the past 12 years.

Thank you BVS (Burns Violence Survivors) for your monthly report. Good to see that there are fewer patients during July. BVS delivered 23 food baskets to the children on the burns unit.

Bupesh is aged 10 and from Panchthar, which lies 621km outside Kathmadu! His father works the land and his mother looks after the family. He is in Grade 4 and his brother in Grade 10. Bupesh suffered 4-5%, 2nd degree burn to his right thigh.

His father was preparing buffalo fodder on an open cooking fire which had died down so he poured kerosene onto the fire which flared up very quickly. Bupesh was standing too close the fire and his clothes caught alight. At first, he was taken to ta nearby health Post, but after 6 days was brought to the Kanti. He has had skin graft surgery and regular dressings and is now making a good recovery.

Manish is aged 7 and comes from Nuwakot which lies 63kms outside Kathmandu. He is in Grade 3 at school and has an older sister. His parents have a very low income and are struggling financially. His father is a driver and his mother takes care of the children.

At the time of the accident, both parents were out. He and his friends were playing on the roof of his house when he touched a live wire and was electrocuted. Some of his friends also were electrocuted but after receiving first aid could go home. However, Manish and one friend needed to be admitted to the burns unit at the Kanti. He has had 1 debridement and tragically, part of his big toe has had to be amputated.

Sayun is 12 months old and from Sarlahi, nearly 200 kms out of Kathmandu but recently living in Bhaktapur, an hour’s drive from the capital. Her father works the land and mother looks after Sayun. She suffered 5% burns to all the fingers on her right hand.
Her mother had prepared tea and left it on a low table to cool while she got on with her chores. Sayun was playing and accidentally put her hand into the hot water. Her mother applied Aloe Vera and ghee onto the burnt area and took Sayun to a local hospital where she received first aid treatment. She was then transferred to the burns unit at the Kanti. She was discharged on the 21st July.

Sabin is nearly two years old and an only child. She lives with her parents in Sarlahi which lies 195 kms outside Kathmandu. She suffered 5%, 1st degree burns to her arm. Her mother had boiled water and put it on the floor to cool. Sabin was playing with her friend when she slipped over and put her hand into the boiled water. After receiving first aid at a local health post she was brought to the Kanti where she stayed for 10 days. She recovered well.

All tragic and many of the accidents in the BVS report could have been easily avoided! One split second of carelessness and a life changed forever!
All names changed for protection.
BVS does sterling work in an upbeat way.

According to UNICEF, diarrhoea is the second most common cause of death in children accounting for 18% of all under-five deaths.

The good news is that simple actions as washing hands are now seen as very effective means of controlling such disease.

Great result too, as my team 'Half a Chance' came first!!! This is indeed a first for a long time, all thanks to Helena, Jenny, David and John. Frank and I joined them, as my usual team, called 'The Chancers' were on holiday. It's all in the name!

Jane and Brian, the Landlords presided over the evening and gave us a generous complimentary cheese and fruit platter with French bread and Lydia and Jack helped behind the bar.

Thank you to all who brought a raffle prize and to Jennifer Haynes who donated two front row seats to Romeo and Juliet in the Castle grounds with drinks in the interval as our star raffle prize! All super generous.

Yesterday we funded our third four-day skills training of 2019. This was held at Sankhu, a very old town located about an hour’s drive from Kathmandu. There were 27 participants taking the training which was on growing unseasonable vegetables. Each four-day training costs around £500.

After learning the theory, the women went outside to put into practice how to make liquid compost comprising mainly of cow and goat dung and urine, grasses called sisno and titepati, salt, onion.

The training puts emphasis on the importance of organic style fertilizers as the bought chemical ones kill useful insects and give an imbalance of the natural habitat for insects and can lead to soil erosion. Over time, these strong chemical insecticides harm human consumption and are harmful to the environment. They learn it is not just about the appearance of the vegetables they grow, but the taste and being eco-friendly at the same time is a win win all round. There was also instruction on how to preserve seeds and cultivate vegetables in a polythene tunnel.

Krishna (pictured) is 36 years old, married with an 12-year-old son. This is the second training she has been on. The first was three years ago. From the money she has earned, she has educated her son who is now in year 7. She is very proud of this and the fact she is not dependent on her husband as the only breadwinner. She also has become a voice in her village, helping other women to get started. They see how well she has done.

She earns £165 a month from what she sells, but getting her produce to market as soon as it is harvested is the difficulty she faces. She has asked to extend her piece of land she rents as she wishes to expand her crop of tomatoes, which yields a high income. This lady is going places!

Anamika, Shenpen's coordinator, who accompanied the training said the women found the training inspiring. Thank you Anamika for sharing Krishna’s story and the photographs of your day. CHANCE is proud to support these trainings.

BVS, one of our main partners in Nepal sent their monthly report for June. During the month they delivered 24 weekly food baskets to all children on the ward. These are funded through CHANCE for NEPAL. There are fewer children on the unit in June than in previous months which is good news, but tragic there are several children who will be on the ward for several weeks.

So many of the accidents in June involved scolding from hot water placed on the floor to cool! Here we have tables and shelves, out of the reach of tiny hands, but in many of the situations below, there is no space to put things, and so the floor is used all too often.

The house is most likely to be just one room where everything happens, cooking on an open fire, eating, sleeping, for the whole family. Lack of space, cramped conditions, mother trying to do her chores and look after her family, often whilst her husband is working away to be able to send money home. All this increases the chance of accidents that just wouldn’t happen in the West. The four cases below were caused by scolds. The team at BVS buy the produce and make up the food baskets which they deliver weekly.

Ritu is 9 months old and lives in Nuwakot, 75kms from Kathmandu. with his parent’s. Her father is a house help and mother looks after her baby. Their financial situation is extremely poor. Ritu is their only child and under treatment. She is making a good recovery.

Pooja is 3 years old and comes from Dolakha 183 kms outside Kathmandu.
Her father is a baker and her mother a housewife. She is an only child. Pooja suffered 2nd degree burns to her bottom and thigh area . She was playing with her rabbit and her mother was preparing buffalo fodder and placed it on the floor to cool. Shreya came running into the house and fell into the buffalo food. Her mother came to her rescue immediately and poured cold water onto the burn and she was rushed to the burn’s unit at the Kanti. She has undergone surgery and is recovering.

Ritesh is 2 years old and comes from Khotang which lies 265kms from Kathmandu. More recently his family rent a room in Kapan, Kathmandu.
His father is working in Korea to be able to send money home and his mother looks after the family. Ritesh has two older sisters. Ritesh suffered 1st degree burns to his chest when the milk his mother had boiled and placed on a table to cool fell off the table onto his chest as he was playing with his older sister. His mother applied Aloe Vera and tomatoes to the burnt area. Then she took him to the burn’s unit at the Kanti Children’s Hospital. He is making a good recovery.

Sonu is 12 months old and she lives with her parents 450 kms outside Kathmandu. Her father is in the army and her mother stays at home to look after Sonu. She suffered 10%, 1st degree burns to her right hand, tummy and chest when a bowl of hot water which her mother had put on the floor to cool whilst she got on with household chores, tipped over when Sonu became entangled in the water and was badly burned. Her mother quickly poured cold water onto the burn and she was rushed to the burn’s unit at the Kanti. She too is making a good recovery.

All names changed for protection.

Over four days, the women are instructed on how to prepare the ground and sow the seeds - Which are the most profitable vegetables to grow - How many yields per annum they can reap from their plot - Pesticides and the harmful effects they can have on humans. Which are harmful insects to their crops - How to make liquid compost - How to make eco-friendly insecticides - How to manage their finances.

The women earn enough to educate one or more of their children from the money they raise growing and selling their vegetables at market. Empowering women, I like it!
