Improve education for Nepali girls and minorities



In remote villages in Nepal, we build and repair primary schools and provide specialized early childhood education training for local teachers, because government-sponsored training is limited.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Before we opened the Santi Primary School in May 2008, there was no school in a Tamang village in Ramche, a rural area in the mountains of Nepal's Sindhupalchok district. About half the people in the village are Tamang, one of the smallest indigenous ethnic minorities in Nepal whose members often face discrimination. After we built the school, we discovered that many of the surrounding schools lacked resources; either they needed books or renovations or their teachers lacked training.

How will this project solve this problem?

We're addressing the problem in 3 ways. First, we provide specialized early childhood education training for teachers at our school and at surrounding schools. And, we make renovations to schools. Finally, we're providing classroom materials.

Potential Long Term Impact

Barely half of all children complete primary school in Nepal. We have found success by making learning fun with more child-friendly classrooms. The children want to come to school, their parents are satisfied, and teachers are happy with their jobs.
