Chairman’s Welcome  

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 deliver our projects and bespoke educational programmes, the charity has established a not-for-profit sister company based in Kathmandu, and we work in conjunction with local municipalities in Nepal who provide back-to-back funding for our projects. We currently support 10 rural schools, 2 after school learning centres and our EYE Nepal teacher training centre which is based in the Kathmandu Valley.

MIKE SMITH

We actively campaign against gender and caste bias and promote creative education as a practical alternative to a life of poverty and the horrendous reality of child labour which is born out of lack of opportunity.

 

In the past decade Nepal has had to overcome civil and political unrest, two devastating earthquakes, all manner of economic difficulties and of course, the Covid pandemic.  As a result of the pandemic, nearly all schools in Nepal were closed for 8 months, and with so many children out of school for so long, an already fractured system was brought to its knees. 

 

There has never been a more urgent need to support the early years education of some of the world’s most disadvantaged children.

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.

Our Mission

Eye Nepal believes that education is the way to unravel the chains of poverty. We seek to attract and retain children at school at a young age, to properly prepare them for later years of education and to improve their chances of success once there.
