Education provides the opportunities needed to break down cycles of disadvantage. Sadly, there are many vulnerable children in the remote parts of the Himalaya who are falling through the cracks and missing out on the benefits of a basic education
Up to 750 vulnerable students each year supported with school supplies and meals
Teachers on average each year trained to deliver a quality education
Young women each year have been trained in technical skills for employment
In Nepal, our flagship Teacher Training and Quality Education project is helping children living in some of the poorest and most remote areas to access inclusive, high quality primary education.
This involves training teachers with the skills required to nurture young minds — particularly in the foundational subjects of English, Maths and Science — and providing vital classroom resources, like furniture, equipment, and books.
With the generosity of supporters, we can also help disadvantaged children and families by providing schoolbags, uniforms, books, stationery, toiletries, and nutritious lunches.
In Bhutan, our educational support focuses on increasing opportunities and improving wellbeing for children and young people who have experienced violence, abuse, or neglect. We are working with our local partner, RENEW (Respect, Educate, Nurture and Empower Women), to ensure vulnerable children can access school until at least Year 10 as well as counselling support.
Opportunities for support can mean the difference between children — especially girls — going to school for a brighter future or missing out completely on the benefits of education.
We rely heavily on the generosity of supporters to reach the most vulnerable people in the Himalaya. Thank you for your support to provide life-changing opportunities for remote communities
