It has been five months since 11-year-old Sandeep Poudel has been cut off from teaching-learning activities. The seventh-grader at Deependra Home Jun Secondary School from Gadhawa Rural Municipality-4 in Dang does not have access to online study, nor is he aware that there are other learning platforms available for him.
“I study on my own whenever I feel like it,” said Poudel. His family doesn’t own a TV and nobody has informed him about the classes broadcast on a local radio station.
A local FM radio with financial support from the rural municipality has been broadcasting classes for five major subjects targeting the students from grade 4 to 10. The three-month radio programme sponsored by the local government ended on Sunday. Students like Sandeep never got to participate in these classes.
