Challenge

9 out of 10 children in Nepal's public schools are not likely to complete secondary school. Most of these children come from poor families and live in Nepal's rural communities. According to Ministry of Education data, 90% children who appear on national board examinations fail in maths, science or English. At the same time, there is over 23,000 teacher shortage in these subjects.

Solution

To enhance the quality of education in public schools and to strengthen public education system Teach For Nepal was launched as a movement to bring outstanding Nepalese university graduates and young professionals -- to teach in public schools for two years as volunteer teachers. We focus on mathematics, science and English, where there is high number of teacher shortage and also where students struggle the most as seen in NASA tests and SLC (SEE) examinations.

Long-Term Impact

By ensuring quality education and supporting students from low income families complete secondary school, door for their higher education opens. Education attainment is linked to livelihood opportunities and higher income possibilities, which means that the children who are educated today can life themselves and their families out of poverty.
