Just as we have created a ‘BELT Farmers Program’ which consists of a give-and-take approach where farmers make certain commitments in exchange for training and support by KTK-BELT, this past year we also launched a BELT Schools Program. The intent of the program is to assist interested schools in implementation of outdoor education programs

including teacher support, resource and material development, design of school grounds, and participation in eco-trips to places like Koshi Tappu, and camping activities in the KTK-BELT.

So far 9 schools have been engaged and the first cohort of teachers are being involved in the initiative.
