For example, Chadeshwari Secondary School in Lalitpur is the only public school with nil pass outs in SLC (School Leaving Certificate) of 2013. TN chose this school particularly because of this in its first year. After 5 years, the school pass out rate in SEE is 100%.
Also, Sangita Jimba who is SEE graduate became first from the school to receive the full scholarship for studying International Baccalaureate in Germany.
TN initiative was conceived by a group of Nepali Youth who graduated abroad to address the concerns regarding the quality of education imparted in public schools. TN aims the transformation of public school education through mobilization of outstanding university graduates and professionals in teaching.
Other 48 countries are also running initiative like TN. As the community engagement is more peculiar, the fellows must spend two years in the local level and interact in the community level.
Shishir Khanal who is Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of TN shared, “The three-day global conference carries the theme, ‘Community at the Centre’. One aspect of putting a community at the centre is ensuring voices and stories of those closest to the problems being addressed are central to the solutions. This is what we can proudly share in the conference.”
