Summary

This Project integrates orphans and vulnerable children in rural Nepal into community-based, holistic, early childhood development (ECD) programs as well as primary and secondary community schools. Global Family Village improves education for all children by training local teachers and providing needed educational supplies. Orphans and local children, working, playing, and learning together!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The difference between the standards of education provided by public schools in rural areas and private schools in Nepal is vast. Failure to pass the School Leaving Certificate exam shuts the door to higher education, leaving orphans and vulnerable children in a cycle of poverty. Yet only 36% of students who attend community schools passed the exam in 2012, versus 84% of students who attend private school.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project provides a quality education and a more positive outcome to children who would otherwise receive substandard schooling or not be able to attend school at all. For an investment of $100 GFV can provide early childhood education for one child from a rural village for one year. GFV monitors the project on site for 5-7 years until it is well integrated into the community, and is self-supporting.

Potential Long Term Impact

A high-quality education improves a child's ability to learn and think creatively, improves self-esteem, enhances critical skills, and opens doors for children to live up to their potential. Access to free, high-quality education will benefit children, families and communities by giving every child the chance to become productive members of society.
