Going to school
Can you imagine not being able to read this sentence?
More than 10 million Nepalese children of primary school age lack basic reading, writing and math skills. If we have a look at primary education in Nepal, we see that of the 4.3 million children aged 10-16, whopping 1.7 million children cannot go to school every day. That is over 38%!
More than 1,700,000 Nepalese children aged 10-16 cannot read and write. In other words, 1 in 3 children is illiterate.
So many children who don't have the opportunity to go to school every day. We want to do something about that. However small the difference we make may be.
We believe that every child has a right to good education. Regardless of gender, background, religion and culture. We believe in what Nelson Mandela once said: "Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.”
