We had to turn away 60 kids this year from the school as we didn't have funding or room for them.
We are going to add a second school so we don't have to turn young, sharp minds away from an education. The organization has the staff, experience and capacity to manage a second school.
The kids living in these slums have little hope for the future. Their parents are mostly illiterate, very poor, day workers. The kids at Koseli on the other hand can read and write, most in English now as well as their native language. After completion of primary school our aim is to get them into vocational training programs where they will find work. Slowly, the slums will fade away as generation after generation are educated, have jobs and leave. These kids are the future of Nepal.
