ANI  |  New Delhi 

Pathways Schools have partnered with Global Shapers Kathmandu Hub in setting up Temporary Learning Centres (TLCs) in Sindhupalchowk districts of Nepal to ensure continuity of education for affected children in this earthquake ravaged country.

This will be one of the first such partnership by an Indian School Group in this direction and Pathways will support this initiative through financial contribution as well as by lending its educational expertise.

Pathways' financial contribution will help establish 10 TLCs with each TLC accommodating 50 to 60 students. TLCs will be established in the districts of Sindhupalchowk.

Commenting on the initiative, Praveen Jain, Director, Pathways Schools, said, "Pathways is happy to associate itself with Global ShapersKathmandu Hub to help them strengthen the existing network of Temporary Learning Centres in the country. These TLCs are the need of the hour, as young minds should not miss out on their education owing to such unfortunate natural catastrophes."

Global Shapers Kathmandu Hub, one of the multi-stakeholder communities at the World Economic Forum, Nepal, has welcomed the support from the Pathways, which received generous contributions from the parents, teachers and students' communities towards the noble cause under their Pathways Nepal Collection Drive.

"We sincerely appreciate how quickly Pathways came to help the Nepalese education sector. Right after the earthquake they wanted to lend their support, especially in the education sector. Their contribution will mean that over 600 students in the Sindhupalchowk will have a safe place to go to school. The Global Shapers Kathmandu Hub and the children of Sindhupalchowk are truly grateful for Pathways' contribution and looking forward to further collaboration in the future." Amod Rajbandhari, Curator of Global Shapers Kathmandu Hub, said.
