Our focus for this year
We are a development agency dedicated to helping children and community groups in less privileged areas of NEPAL
Helping to create safe and friendly classrooms so children have a better opportunity to pursue an education in an environment conducive to learning.
We are connecting skilled people from around the world to communities we work with in Nepal. We work closely with locals to understand how their needs can be helped filled by volunteers.
We support training and professional development programs for the benefit of women's groups, teachers and members of the community.
Creating opportunities for children who are marginalised and vulnerable by providing basic needs and educational support.
Using technology to help deliver rich content in teaching, enable children to learn about the world in their own way and to prepare them for full participation in the world as digital citizens.
We are diversifying our portfolio of services so we can fund community development projects in Nepal.
