Why We Do It


Nepal is famous for being the land-locked home to Mount Everest the world’s highest peak, and to 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.

Long-term Impact

Our Mission

Caste discrimination, gender bias, economic circumstance or simply a lack of facilities can lead to poor children in Nepal missing out on a formal education. This very often condemns those children, like their parents before them, to a life living on the edge with little opportunity and no financial safety net.

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

We want our teacher training and programmes to increase the abilities of the children by the time they reach Grade 3 and to have a measurable impact on their attainment and attendance levels going forward.
