KET Nearly Four Years Old
The Kohima Educational Trust is now nearly four years old and has recently welcomed as an equal partner in its work of providing educational support to the children of Nagaland, the Kohima Educational Society (KES).
When the trust originally set out to provide educational support to underpin local provision in Kohima, it was always envisaged that it would be education in the broadest sense. Hence, in addition to providing library facilities, scholarships, text books and support to assist with teacher training, we and our colleagues in KES have sought to find wider applications for our precious resources.
Essay Competition winners
Provision of a basketball court at Phek where Ray Jackson was harboured from the Japanese in 1944, environmental awareness talks, an Essay Competition to underline the importance of children learning the history of their country and our involvement in helping to develop medical learning are all part of this wider application.
Another project in the pipeline could soon be residential provision to house students attending school in Pangsha, thereby avoiding long daily walks to their classrooms.
All of these developments are very exciting for those involved in direct management of the Trust. We hope that everyone who has contributed so generously in helping to make this work possible will take equal satisfaction from what is being achieved.
