About Project

Dalit Welfare Organization(DWO) and Swiss Academy for Development (SAD) is jointly implementing Move 4 New Horizon-II-A holistic educational approach for disadvantaged children and youth in Nepal from May 2012-June 2015 in Dang district, western part of Nepal. DWO and SAD successfully completed pilot project which was commonly known as Move 4 New Horizons-First Phase from 2008-20011 in the same districts. M4NH-first phase won the 'UNICEF Sport for Education Award' 2011 and was one of the final projects selected for the WISE Award 2010 and 2011 (World Innovation Summit for Education) of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. It involved educational interventions for three demographics of children. The first involved offering early childhood education for children ages 3-5. 15 facilitators were trained and over the course of 3 years operated play-based learning centres which reached 737 children (420 girls, 317 boys), 410 of whom are now enrolled in school (220 girls, 190 boys). It also trained 211 parents and guardians on using local resources for making toys and games to improve early childhood development. By the end of the program, committees were formed of local leaders and parents/guardians to ensure that the centres will remain open and operational. The second involved offering informal education centres for out-of-school children ages 6-12. After training 10 facilitators for this age group, child-clubs were established in 10 communities reaching 212 children. The facilitators also conducted informal schools for a total of 492 youth (234 girls, 258 boys), 333 of which are now involved in formal education (175 girls, 158 boys). Finally, employment training including business and technical skills was offered to unemployed youth ages 15-22. A discussion group was conducted on 32 occasions with the local community and stakeholders to identify and select youth for the skill development training. Out of these, 1109 youth (517 women, 539 men) were trained in different vocations such as tailoring, candle making, motorcycle repair, and others. 70 have opened joint enterprises, and 221 have opened solo enterprises.
