THE TEACHER CREATING A PLASTIC-FREE SCHOOL

Nepal

Kalleri School

Meet Juna*. Juna is 20 years old and from Kalleri village. When we built a school in her community, Juna was recruited and trained as a local teacher.

MEET JUNA*

Now she teaches the kindergarten class at the school, having received early years training from education specialists.

Despite being the youngest teacher at the school, Juna is determined to have a positive impact. She has been working alongside the Fellow at the school to create a plastic-free environment. Plastic is a huge environmental issue for many rural communities in Nepal, as they often do not have access to the infrastructure to dispose of the growing amount of plastic packaging.

Juna has been teaching her students how to re-use plastic, creating hanging baskets made out of bottles to decorate the school. She has also made a tree out of plastic for her classroom. Juna’s innovation and determination for change is a real inspiration to her students, her community and the UWS team.
