Improving education through literacy and gender equality.
We aim to provide a comprehensive selection of text and fiction books, relevant for all ages and genders in both Nepali and English.
We aim to provide schools with necessary stationaries and other equipment they need.
After the earthquakes in April and May 2015, we have been involved in several aid projects regarding school rebuilding and providing different school materials.
We will continue to support education and school rebuilding in the earthquake affected areas.
Education in Nepal :
Nepal is among the 15 poorest countries in the world and UN states Nepal to be one of the least developed countries in the world.
Totally adult literacy rate in 2012 was 57 %.
School attendance has been unequal across income and gender groups, due to poverty and lack of value on education.
The national enrollment for females between the ages of six and ten is 67 percent, compared to 78 percent for males.
Nepal’s education system is of poor quality, especially in public schools. Studies reveal that hardly any learning and teaching occurs in rural public schools. There is very little testing and no help for students who are struggling.
There is a shortage of funds for learning tools such as extra classrooms, libraries, stationaries, text books, scientific equipment and laboratories.
Nepal spends 16 % of the national budget on education. Nepal’s share of higher education in the education budget was 6% in 2004, which was one of the lowest in the world.
We belive education saves lives. The schools do not only give the children protection but also the knowledge how to prevent poverty, keep themselves healthy and give hope for the future.
