Rural Assistance Nepal Projects

Teacher in Bardia.

Teachers for schools

Rather than spending money to sponsor a child's education, sponsoring a teacher, means more children can benefit. Teachers can be selected who demonstrate commitment and willingness to improve the quality of education given to the children they teach.

Books for schools

RAN is proud of the school libraries that have been started up at three schools, and have also supplied wall charts, science materials, sports equipment, musical instruments and arts materials to the schools in Deusa, Gariumdi and Chaurjahari in Rukkum.

Computers for schools

Daycare centre run by Women's

Computers have been given to schools at Deusa, Garimudi, Bangeswal and Madhela. Volunteers have helped set the computers up and provided training to help the teachers teach computing at the schools

Health projects

Volunteer setting up a
water supply to the sub-
healthpost at Deusa

RAN has a local midwife working at a healthpost in Okaldunga.

RAN is working with Tamekoshi Cooperative Hospital in Ramechapp, a hill district in eastern Nepal. Here his community hospital provides support to government healthposts particularly through health camps and training. Volunteers help the hospital provide regular camps in and around Manthali, where the hospital is based. Doctors, nurses, paramedics and medical students are all very welcome to help with training, seeing patients and assisting with running healthcamps. RAN has provided support to two nurses for their training here.

Tamekoshi Hospital is happy to supervise medical students wishing to complete their medical electives here.


Training at Soo Jung Community
Hospital in Doti (Far Western
Region of Nepal)

Providing information is free and RAN helps volunteers who want to help at schools or healthposts and hospitals. Training local staff is particularly useful. Thanks go to Expedition & Wilderness Medicine who provide a steady flow of volunteer medics - medical students, nurses and doctors.
