IBBY-Yamada 2021: Nepal

IBBY Nepal: Stories for children after Covid-19 for the new normal - collection of children’s experiences for picture books and books for parents.

This project sought to collect the experiences of children during the pandemic lockdowns and their visions for the future, after the pandemic. It also involved collecting the experiences of parents and how to promote knowledge on the coronavirus and a reading habit. These stories were edited and will be published as picture books and story books to be distributed to the participating schools and libraries as a historical reminder of the pandemic. The project involved more than 100 students and 20 teachers/parents in five districts affected by the pandemic: Lalitpur, Rasuwa, Kavre, Rupandehi and Kanchnpur.
