Summary

Freedom to Learn's work in Nepal has revolutionised how children from some of the most vulnerable and marginalised communities gain improved access to and quality of education and improve their subsequent life chances. We achieve this by determining the barriers that impede education in state schools in Nepal and then develop and provide workable relevant responses to address these issues, from bikes to school, to teacher training, to school meals, for just under 5000 children across 6 schools.

Challenge

State education in Nepal is severely underfunded, violence in schools is endemic, government school teachers are under qualified and underpaid with limited resources to meet infrastructure needs, running costs, water and sanitation and essential educational materials. The children who attend government schools in Nepal are from the poorest and most vulnerable families in the community, often discriminated against for attending a state school, and therefore more often than not, don't go to school

Solution

We work to challenge and change this prejudice. Given the myriad of difficulties in the Nepali education system the need for creative and innovative solutions is ever more pertinent. We work with teachers, parents and students to develop a multi-faceted and child-centred teaching approach - including employing teachers, training teachers, providing essential school materials, a bikes to school initiative, improving water and sanitation facilities, careers counselling, hot school meals and more.

Long-Term Impact

1. Improved academic experience and associated performance 2. An increase in student self-esteem and well-being, as children feel valued and thrive in a much more positive and aspirational educational setting. 3. Increased attendance by staff and pupils. 4. Community increasingly valuing and feeling a part of the school. 5. Healthier stronger children able to concentrate and focus in class. 6. Increased understanding of the value of school and a quality education across the whole community.
