" Child Education Project (CEP):

Under CEP, currently the foundation has been providing a complete education package comprising of tuition fees, room and boarding facilities to 14 underprivileged children from Kavre and Okhaldhunga districts. The families of these children are living in extreme poverty. If a family were to sell everything they own in order to educate just one of their children, it would not cover even one year's tuition. Quality education, though cheap by western standards, is still far out of the reach of any families from the outlying rural communities.

These children are now attending school in Kathmandu and are doing well academically, though initially adapting was difficult for them, due to the inferior quality of education in the villages, or in some cases, having received no education at all.

CASE STUDY:

Sunil is 8 years old boy. He comes from a broken home from a Magar community. In spite of his background he is very intelligent, cheerful and eager to learn. Since he was born he is been living with his maternal grandparents. He is been doing very well with his studies and came top in his class.

It is our hope that one day he will grow up to be a responsible and productive member of society and take responsibility towards his family.

"Children are today's investment & tomorrow's dividend."
