This July, we are celebrating our generous sponsors for all the love and support they have provided over the years through our child scholarship program. Due to these sponsors, many children in Nepal have had the opportunity to gain a quality education and work towards a brighter future.
Nepal is a country where the majority of people live below the poverty line and struggle to make ends meet. The support that we have received over the years through our child scholarship program has helped numerous children gain access to quality education, healthcare and accommodation. We have been able to provide a platform for children who live in vulnerable communities to learn and reach their full potential.
In Nepal, due to the impact of the global pandemic, general expenses like food and fuel have increased in price and families are really suffering. All schools, including the World Youth International School, have shut down and there is no infrastructure in place for children to be educated remotely through online learning programs. The School has been encouraging the students that they have been able to stay in contact with, to focus on their fitness and mindfulness to stay optimistic while they are away from School. The School is due to reopen in August. You can read more about the pandemic’s impact on the children’s education and mental health here.
Education is crucial for breaking the cycle of poverty so many families have lived in for generations in Nepal. For most families, their children are the first generation to be literate, and to have access to education at all.
The support of our child scholarship sponsors provides hope for the children within the communities we help.
We believe in the power of education to not only benefit the life of the child, but also their community, and we thank our sponsors from the bottom of our hearts – their contribution empowers and inspires positive change where its most needed.
