Plenty of children, who live in the remote region Dolpa, which is located in the northwest of Nepal, have a big problem to learn how to write in their official language Nepalese, because it differs from their mother language.
The ability to read and comprehend texts is essential for school success and builds the foundation for further educational opportunities.
To strengthen their reading ability the children should start to learn how to read in their mother language at preschool age. If they are able to handle their mother language confident it could be easier to recognize connections between languages, which leads to a basic way in learning Nepalese at elementary school age.
Through a child oriented expansion of their learning environment 210 preschoolers as well as 400 first and second graders should learn reading in a better way.
