Summary

The project will provide scholarships to 40 children, mostly orphans and from poor families, studying at Jyotidaya School in Nepal.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Bibek was only five when his dad committed suicide. He and his elder Brother, Bijaya, are now raised by their mother, Ganga. Ganga never left home before her husband died. Now, she is struggling to make a living for her family. Because of poverty, Bibek and many children like him, in Nepal, cannot afford to go to school. Children in rural areas do not have access to quality education. 40 children like Bibek need support to go to school.

How will this project solve this problem?

By providing scholarship to the most vulnerable children, especially the orphans and from poor families, Sarvodaya enables them to attend the schools.

Potential Long Term Impact

According to the UNICEF, "Children who do not go to school are more vulnerable to poverty, hunger, violence, abuse and exploitation, trafficking, and HIV/AIDS." The project will educate 40 children allowing them to uplift their soco-economic status.
