Story of Ramesh Adhikari
Post: Teacher (Nepal SEEDS)
Shree Bandevi Primary School, Sisnery, Makawanpur
Appointment Date:  2006
I am Ramesh Adhikari, and I am a Primary Teacher at the Bandevi Primary School in Sisnery.   I always wanted to become as a teacher.  Now, I would like to spend my whole life teaching so that I can help to preserve our cultural heritage, environment, and to give a quality education to the children in my village.

First of all, I want to say a million thank to Nepal SEEDS for your great support that started when I first applied to be a teacher in Bandevi Primary School in 2006.
I am so glad that I was able to return back to my village school as a teacher. I feel very happy to teach small children and to help them get a good education.

Besides teaching I am very involved in an environment program, especially trash collecting around the school area. I try to help the kids establish an understanding of their environment and their responsibility for taking care of it. Nepal SEEDS supports my school with school supplies, a teacher, teaching materials, and school furniture. We, teachers and students, benefit every day in our teaching and learning. We all send our thanks to Nepal SEEDS for your great support.
