Can you imagine an entire school classroom that is a sandbox? Or how about having a wading pool in class to play in or cool off? These are just some of the innovative ways that KB & Sushila Basel are teaching the children who attend Sophia English School. KB is one of our lead pastors in Nepalgunj, Nepal, and he used his background in education to start the school in 2004. He has developed a curriculum that encourages learning through play, much like some of the Montessori schools in the U.S. The school teaches children from pre-school up to grade eight. They have been so successful that the local community has taken notice. Doctors, attorneys and government officials have been enrolling their own children at Sophia School instead of the state run public schools.
The school has been an integral part of our church network in West Nepal and is able to meet a real need of our village pastors to have a place to send their children for a quality education. Many times, the village pastors have migrated to the city in order for their children to receive an education. Now they have the option of sending their kids to Sophia School in Nepalgunj, and they can remain in their village to lead their church.
