Sending Children to School in Remote Villages

Provide an education to the first generation of children in remote areas of Nepal. These disadvantaged children would remain illiterate, and continue their life of poverty without any hope of change.


Two-thirds of Nepal's population is illiterate; only 22% of the girls are literate. Schools in villages are grim with a high dropout rate. Schools don’t have sufficient teachers; the ones they have are poorly trained, and schools lack educational materials. School-aged children migrate to urban areas to work as domestic servants or laborers. NYOF provides scholarships to students because of poverty, to female students, to those from a low caste community, and those who are physically disabled.


NYOF is changing the future. NYOF improves and builds schools, trains the teachers, provides education materials, and pays the scholarships for children who would otherwise not have the ability to attend school. NYOF caters to the most disadvantaged.

Long-Term Impact

Help eliminate poverty; an education is especially important to woman. Once educated women practice birth control, take better care of their families, and educate their children. Only hope for Nepali children who would otherwise remain illiterate.
