Education – our promise to a better future
Over the last 20 years, Nepal has made significant progress in improving numerous aspects of their education system. However, the quality of education is generally still poor, and is characterized by high dropout rates, a lack of girl-friendly facilities, and few suitable learning facilities.
80% of Nepalis live on less than $2 USD per day.
Many families from very poor communities simply cannot afford to send their children to school, and the children are required to work from a young age to support their family. Girls in particular are often deprived of a full education due to gender discrimination. For many children, education can be the path out of poverty for themselves and their families– except they lack the funds to attend school.
How You Can Help
Help us create change that lasts a lifetime for children in Nepal!
Sponsor a Child
Provide a child with the invaluable opportunity of knowledge and a way out of poverty through education by sponsoring their schooling annually.
When you sponsor a poor child, you do far more than just provide funds – you empower a child who has been robbed of an opportunity many of us take for granted. Through your contribution you give a child the chance to realize their rights and reach their full potential, thereby transforming their lives, their communities, their country, and the world.
100% of every donation will be sent directly to the school in Nepal!
A $200 contribution will support a student for a year of schooling. We will pair you with a student, and if you wish, pass along updates from their teacher on how he/she is doing throughout the year.
A $1,000 contribution will sponsor a child through all 5 years of higher education. We will pair you with a student, and if you wish, pass along updates from their teacher on how he/she is doing throughout each year, until the final exam is completed.
