Project Evaluation Report: Quality Education Through Teachers' Magazine
In partnership with Himal Association, Save the Children developed the concept of creating a teacher’s magazine to improve the quality of education in schools. In mid-2007 Save the Children conducted a consultation with experts and stakeholders in both the education and media sector. A small team of professionals determined the basic quality and content for a monthly magazine and titled the project Shikshak. The first issue of the magazine was released in January 2008. Since then, it has been released on a regular monthly basis in almost all 75 districts of Nepal. Save the Children made its initial investment in the venture with the understanding that the magazine would be self-sustainable in three to five years.
