Educational Programs

Though Nepal pledges assurances of equal access to education from grades 1 through 10, children are often unable to continue on past this very basic level due to the financial constraints of their families. In the most disadvantaged communities, this problem is most common, resulting in an overall lack of quality education for everyone in a single area. Obviously, this reduces the opportunity for any single individual from that community to improve upon their own condition.

 

Our educational initiatives are robust and comprehensive projects designed to accommodate all facets of the educational system in Nepal’s rural communities. These programs are designed to provide assets to children and their educators from the ground up, starting with the school’s infrastructure itself, including the building and a hygienic lavatory. We are also diligent in ensuring all students are equipped with school supplies and uniforms, and all classrooms are equipped with electronic resources such as computers and text books. Implementing and maintaining proper teacher training is also a major focus of these programs.
