EDUCATION

We believe education to be paramount

​Primary school enrolment rates are high at 96%, with near gender parity. However, secondary school completion rates are low and the overall literacy rate is 65%, with much lower literacy rates among women and traditionally marginalised castes and ethnic groups.

We believe education to be paramount: it can lift children out of poverty forever and gives children opportunities for the rest of their lives.

SPONSORSHIP

For as little as 67p a day you can sponsor a child to ensure they receive a solid education. We have four different sponsorship options, where you can sponsor children from our children's home, our day school programme, our disabled children's programme or support a child living with extended family.

We evaluate our programmes regularly to determine how they can be more effective. The evaluations include measuring the outcomes of each programme on the children we help, their parents and their communities, comparing these outcomes to similar metrics in previous years and comparing the health and academic progress of children we support to the national averages in Nepal. Furthermore, the Social Welfare Council of the government of Nepal evaluates our organisation every five years.
 
We continue to work with the government and other organisations such as the Department of Education, Child Heath Division, Central Child Welfare Board & District Welfare Boards, District Public Health Offices, UNICEF and many more to ensure the longevity and success of our programmes.
