Area: DhadingI am Ajay, age of 35, I am founder and Principal of our academy, Vice- Chairman of the Prominent Welfare Society, Scouts Master for Nepal Scouts ( SCA Troop) and involved in local clubs with social services. I have a Master's Degree in Political Science, and a BA Degree in English Literature from Tribhuvan University. I have been teaching for ten years. My wife Bina, age of 28, is an administrator at the Academy and works in local women's groups as the leader in women empowerment issues. We have five year old daughter "Eminent Rimal (Sanskriti)", she prefers her Nepali name "SANSKRITI" which means culture. She reads in Class one at the Academy. I founded the academy in 2007 after a final wish from my father, who was a pioneer in bringing English education in to rural parts of Nepal. Sadly during the political crisis his school failed and he asked me to continue his dream of bringing education to all to develop communities. It is a government registered English medium school 4 km from our home which is located at the side of river Dharke, Dhading. Our place is one hour drive from Kathmandu ( 25 Kilometers) and on the way to Pokhara. We currently have 200 students that range from nursery to class 10 (age4-18). We want to develop our community by educating young people through active involvement in education, health, agriculture, languages, cultures, lifestyles, music, games and sports, the environment and its sustainability. Our Academy Mission • We provide qualitative education to both under privileged and privileged children irrespective of colour, creed religion and castes. Further, the students get ample opportunities to achieve their goals, establish social norms and values, and develop moral character in this ever changing world. At the academy, we believe in an education based on proper caring, counselling, love , positive thinking with a rounded curriculum. Our curriculum is based on significant lessons of mental and spiritual well-being, a direct involvement with nature to learn about sustainability of the environment, as well as music, sports, personality development, elocution, organic farming, project work, poetry, scouting, creativity and services that have been provided to the students by utilizing limited and locally available resources. At the Academy we provide our students the tools to unlock their potential and the freedom to explore the success in life in this ever changing world. The wealth of skills, knowledge and experiences that are brought by volunteers really builds a multi-cultural link for our students with the wider world. We welcome volunteers with mutual understanding, cooperation and a willingness to share food, cultures, lifestyle, languages, skills. Therefore creating a world wide network.
