With the onset of new academic year in Surkhet, children from economically disadvantaged families have been facing problems with their studies. Navjyoti Center has been receiving requests for education materials from child clubs, children who have no parents, children of violence-affected single parents and parents who are disabled. About 450 children are being supported by Navjyoti in a year.

A program was organized in Navjyoti Center on June 17, 2022, in which 133 children received education materials such school bags, uniform materials and stationery from the hands of Rishi Giri, newly elected ward chairperson. Navjyoti Center took this opportunity to welcome the newly elected chairperson and the representatives of ward No. 9. They have promised to coordinate with the work of Navjyoti Center.
