Ra Collaborates On Environmental Protection Education For School Kids In Kathmandu

Founder Raj Tamang and other World Adventure Society ambassadors, Sunil C. Sharma from Nepal and Jia Jian Koh from Singapore, delivered an environmental protection lesson based on “Leave No Trace” principles for secondary and high school students in the Lalitpur district of Nepal. This may be the first of much such collaboration among the Asian WAS. Asian Was ambassadors plan to combine the ambassadors to grow the World Adventure society’s reach.

On 18th December, Vajra Academy was the venue for the day one session. The school is environmentally savvy as it has adopted many sound environmental practices. The school runs its entire kitchen on renewal energy, such as solar and biogas. It is situated on the outskirts of the Lalitpur district in the Kathmandu valley. Visit the school at this location. 

The ambassadors observed that the students were extremely disciplined and knowledgeable. They took a good part in the question and answer session and were very engaging. They were given practical knowledge on avoiding or minimizing the impacts of our outdoor pursuits on Mother Nature. They also learned ways to be safe and be considerate to other outdoor users.

On 19th December, the ambassadors reached out to Sudesha High School, located at Bhainsepati.

The Ambassadors conducted two sessions, one for a small sub-segment of Lalitpur district Nepal Scout and the other for a grade of 7 and eight students. Both the Sessions were organized by Rover leader Mr Satya Narayan Shahi of Nepal Scout Lalitpur district. The Nepal Scout organized this session very professionally. The School Principal, Mr Madhusudan Lohani, chaired the meeting. Ambassadors received a very cordial welcome from the Scout cadets. National Anthems of Nepal and Singapore were played to start the session formally.

The Ambassadors were captivated by the level of enthusiasm from the students to learn and discover more. They kept fielding one good question after another one, which benefited everyone. The mature students even asked if they could become a member of the World Adventure Society. This was very encouraging to hear that they wanted to be WAS members at such a tender age. This is a good sign that WAS is a beaming positive image to the world.

We want to thank Ms Achala Thapa of Nepal scout, who helped coordinate the two days of training sessions at various schools.
