Shenpen Education believes that every child in Nepal has the right to attend school and receive a quality education. Our goal is to help provide educational opportunities for poor and needy children in Nepal.
Shenpen Education recognises that although steady progress has been made in recent years, there is still much work that needs to be done to ensure that all Nepali children are able to attend school and receive a quality education. Unfortunately, even when it is available, the quality of public education in Nepal remains very low.
In response to the inability of the Nepali government to deliver a public education system that meets the needs of all children, in the last two decades a large number of private schools have opened both in the Kathmandu Valley and across Nepal. The rapid increase in private schools places significant stress on the educational system as a whole, and also on ability of individual families to be able to afford to educate their children.
Shenpen Education recognises that a good quality education not only helps provide a brighter future for children and families, but also for Nepal as a whole. That is why we are working with poor and needy Nepali families to help them educate their children. We are doing this in three ways:
- Sponsoring the education of individual children
- Providing hot meals in school each day
- Distributing stationery supplies
