In Nepal, poverty is a harsh reality in the rural and mountainous districts.
The families living in these areas have little or no income and are therefore relying on their farming to get food on the table. A key reason for the lack of jobs and opportunities for in income generation, is that the educational sector is not functioning properly. The facilities are damaged, timeworn, and insufficient, and most teachers only have a 3-months education after secondary school. As a result of this, many students are not attending school and teenagers are instead traveling to the Gulf states to work under inhumane conditions, to provide financially for their families.
To change the circumstances, we are working with the government and local authorities as a registered INGO. We have chosen this joint effort as it leads to a bigger and more sustainable impact for our projects and the district.
We focus our work on given districts mirroring the approach of our Governmental Partners in Nepal. This focus will lead to higher impact. We are working with the schools in the district holistically – as well as creating local impact projects to create income generation and jobs. Our local Human Practice Foundation Project team is responsible for implementing our projects.
