School Environment Improvement Programme
Background
Environmental Camps for Conservation Awareness (ECCA) has initiated School Environment Improvement Programme to improve the basic environment of schools the lack of proper school environment is one of the main causes of school dropouts (especially of girl students). It is envisaged that enrollment of the students will also increase when facilities (like water, toilet, greenery) are improved in the school. Classroom management and relationship among children, teachers and community also plays an important role in improving the school environment.

In the schools where this programme has been launched, students are doing good job - like monitoring school compound, toilets, fast food shops, managing open spaces and preserving plants. The programme has also helped the teachers on teaching technique and practising different ways to make aware children on environment issues and to change their behaviour. All the activities are done practically and in related spots e.g. health and sanitation is taught in and around the toilet, nutrition in fast food shops where they check the food and water and one school one-heritage programme is carried out in nearby natural or cultural heritage sites. Similarly, greenery is taught by planting the saplings and composting from waste materials.

This type of programme can develop the positive attitude and vision on children and community to improve the environment of the village as a whole. The children are the leaders of tomorrow. Whatever they learn today, they expose tomorrow. So, we should be particular in transplanting positive attitude amongst them.

Together, we all can make difference in improving school and surrounding environment.
