Summary

This project will train and mentor 1,500 teachers from some of the most remote and resource-poor regions of Himalayan Nepal. These teachers will provide 50,000 village school children with vibrant learning environments and and will foster creative, entrepreneurial, critical thinkers capable of handling the challenges and opportunities of the world.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

This project addresses the lack of effective teaching methods and the overemphasis on rote learning and physical punishment in Nepal's schools. We also confront the challenges that keep girls from staying in school. In remote regions of Nepal teachers are often unsupported and lack the knowledge to provide children with a high quality education. Consequently school is not valued in the community and less than 30% of children complete primary level education.

How will this project solve this problem?

We will train and support 1,500 teachers to provide children with essential skills such as critical thinking and problem solving. Child friendly learning environments will be created, where students feel safe enough to express their own creative ideas. This approach will emphasize the importance of education and promote its benefits to the community which will in turn give children more opportunities in life.

Potential Long Term Impact

By encouraging critical and creative thinking, this project ensures that 50,000 per year of Nepal's most disadvantaged students graduate with the skills they need to thrive in today's world. We also challenge prevailing perceptions about girls being inferior and less important than boys. Our project prepares a new generation of enlightened citizens capable of tackling the poverty, inequality (especially gender equality) and political situation in Nepal.
