TRIYOG FOR EARTHQUAKE RELIEF:
On 30th April, 2015, The Triyog School Alumni, students, and staff set up a collection and distribution center on the school grounds at Dhapasi. This was in response to the earthquake which struck Nepal on 25th April.
Our aim was simple – to request well-wishers and the broader school community to donate what they could to the relief efforts following the earthquake, and, to connect to various organizations arranging distribution of relief items; ensuring they went to where they were most needed.
Relief items collected were distributed through organisations including HCI, Nepal Rises, Relief For Gorkha, and through many individual volunteers. Items collected included food, clothing and medical supplies, and, they were dispatched to Sanglabasti, Patan Hospital, Lalitpur, Dhading, Sanga, Nuwakot, Sindupalchowk, Gongabu, Dolakha, Dhading, Kavre and Thankot.
Our students, parents and teachers have worked hand in hand, contributing supplies, volunteering time and some dispatching supplies to the most affected areas.
It has been inspiring to see our school come together, doing their bit to help those in need. Over 7 days, with a combined 120 hours of volunteer work it was an incredible effort by all involved.
Thank-you and congratulations to our Alumni, staff and students. There is no doubt your contributions have been well received and will go a long way in assisting those families most affected.
JUNIOR RED CROSS SOCIETY:
The Junior Red Cross Society at Triyog was formed in the academic session 2014-15 to involve the students in social activities and develop in them a sense of care and belonging for the society the live in.
Red Cross Initiatives:
- During the earthquake relief operation, the Junior Red Cross played a major role in collecting relief materials seeking donations from individual houses around Dhapasi VDC. Mrs. Durga Karki, the Junior Red Cross Coordinator led the collection and distribution initiative.
- In December, the Junior Red Cross team along with the Junior School Red Cross Coordinator handed over warm blankets and clothes to Mr. Niraj Niraula, member of ‘Nyano Sansar’ – a winter initiative of Nepal Share. The materials were donated by the students, teachers and staff of the school.
- On February 15, students from Grades 8, 9 and 10 also accompanied Mrs. Durga Karki and handed over stationery materials and books collected from the Triyog familyto Bandevi School, Manichud- Bajrayogini. The school is economically very weak and backward, where the student population hails from the Tamang community.
