About the Community
Prolific Higher Secondary School is an English-language school in the northeastern district of Kathmandu, Dhumbarahi. Because the Dhumbarahi district houses typically low-to-medium income families, Prolific was set up to provide global-standard education to families that otherwise had trouble affording it.
Now they are working steadfastly to bring modern pedagogical practices and resources to their students, and for this reason, we were invited by principal Resham to stay for two weeks and share our love for storytelling.
We printed this child-authored storybook from the workshop:
Women Continue Us
Come back with us to the days of medieval Nepali lore, re-imagined by a Grade 7 student from Kathmandu during our first trip to Nepal. In her story, we catch a glimpse of life in an enchanted kingdom at the cross-section of various cultures, and a king with a touch of male hubris learns a valuable lesson when a wish to Lord Shiva is blown well out of proportions.
