EYE Nepal is a small UK based charity dedicated to enhancing the life opportunities of the poorest children in rural districts of Nepal through better early years education.
In order to implement change and deliver our educational programmes, the charity has established a not-for-profit sister company based in Kathmandu. We work in conjunction with local municipalities in Nepal who provide back-to-back funding for our projects.
We currently support Early Years classrooms in ten rural schools, two after school learning centres and our EYE Nepal teacher training centre where over 50 teachers have been trained to date.
Investing in the early years of a child’s life is one of the smartest things a country can do to eliminate poverty and stimulate economies. Girls who attend school are less likely to marry early or against their will, education empowers women to make life choices.
Nepal is one of the world's least developed countries with at least a third of the 26 million population living below the poverty line.
Change has to start somewhere… and we firmly believe this is through excellent early years education.
Our aim is to attract and retain children at school at a young age, preparing them for primary education and improve their chances of a bright future when they are there.
Your donation helps to make this possible.
Thank you to all our supporters.
Why We Do It
Nepal is famous for being the land locked home to Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, and the vast Himalayan mountain range. Perhaps less well known is the fact that Nepal is one of the world's least developed countries with at least a third of the 26 million population living below the poverty line.
Agriculture employs 70% of the population
57% of people in Nepal exist on less than $2 per day
One third live at least 2 hours’ walk from an all season road
Only 5% of rural Nepal has electrification
5% of children aged 5-9 years in rural Nepal are estimated to be out of school
24% of 4 year olds are not in pre school or primary school
In total, 800,000 children do not attend school at all in Nepal
During the recent COVID19 crisis, 95% of children did not attend school for over 8 months
60% of girls marry before 18, many before 14
80% of children will suffer from domestic violence
Eye Nepal believes that good education is the way to unravel the chains of poverty. We help schools to attract and retain children at school from a young age, to properly prepare them for later years of education and to improve their chances of success once there.
EYE Nepal has teams in both the UK and Nepal. All the UK trustees associated with EYE Nepal work on an entirely voluntary basis, funding their own expenses, and concentrate all the funds raised to directly supporting the various projects managed and delivered by the team in Nepal. Over a number of years, the trustees have built a strong reputation in Nepal for their services to early years education and have established relationships with the municipalities in which EYE Nepal operates. Our team on the ground in Nepal ensures that each project is delivered to achieve maximum impact.
