Meant to be for the facilitators in Nepal, this English version
of the instruction-video gives an inside view for all people interested
of what we are doing in Nepal...




A backpack with some interesting content,
gives an extra dimensions to our follow-up-tours.

- With a backpack we can reach every possible school-location
from the crowded city-center till the remote schools in the mountains.
- Puzzles are not-known by most/all children.
So... excitement all-over by almost 130 students
in the 5 schools where the expressionbook program is running
and also our puzzle-backpack stopped by!
- It gives the teachers extra support and idea's towards creative teaching.

Nevertheless, the expressionbooks remain our core concept. 

Class 4 - Panchakanya school - 25 pupils
Class 9 - Shree Jalpa School - 18 pupils
Class 9 - Mahankali school - 50 pupils
Class 5 Prabhat school - 9 pupils
and the Sanskrit-school in Kathmandu - 25 pupils


NEPAL - 2 new schools enrolled

The remote schools of Shree Jalpa & Panchakanya in Dhading joined last week the program of Wonderwise. The expressionbooks became part of their curriculum.

The second EXPRESSIONBOOK and the EDUCATORS MANUAL for EMERGENCIES or (post)traumatic situations are ready.

Interested organizations or schools can apply freely!

These books can - in discussion with the organization - be adapted by Wonderwise to the concrete situations where the books will be used and translated to the local language.

Wonderwise is a non-profit organisation* working in a wide range of educational settings using Plastic Arts and Free Expression as Therapy and Personality Development Strategy.

The project introduces the Art of free ‘expression’ into schools first by providing teacher training and student sessions. Wonderwise provides the raw materials and expression books and follow-up. The expression books have been developed by Wonderwise and can be adapted to any situation and translated to any language. Wonderwise books are an ideal way to introduce free expression through Art in schools and organizations all over the world.

Currently (2017) Wonderwise is very active in Nepal. After the major Earthquake in April 2015 Griet and Sudhir launched the Wonderwise project in Nepal starting with an emergency-program in the months following the Earthquake and aftershocks. Then they started a sustainable project with sponsorship from Belgium. The Wonderwise program has now been introduced into the curriculum of some Nepalese state schools. A motivated Nepalese team is in charge due the kind sponsorship from Belgium funds.

Due to the great success of the first book Wonderwise is working on a second, focusing on children with risk of suffering from (post) traumatic stress. Early examples of this book and educational manuals are ready for review. (Feb 2017)
