Educational Projects

Students elated to see computers for the first time in the new Computer Lab of Bhamara Foundation School, Bhamara Nuwakot. We are working towards making more computer labs in other remote areas of Nepal to give every child equal opportunities.

Though Nepal pledges assurances of equal access to education from grades 1 through 10, children are often unable to continue on past this very basic level due to the financial constraints of their families. In the most disadvantaged communities, this problem is most common, resulting in an overall lack of quality education for everyone in a single area. Obviously, this reduces the opportunity for any single individual from that community to improve upon their own condition.

Our educational initiatives are robust and comprehensive projects designed to accommodate all facets of the educational system in Nepal’s rural communities. These programs are designed to provide assets to children and their educators from the ground up, starting with the school’s infrastructure itself, including the building and a hygienic lavatory. We are also diligent in ensuring all students are equipped with school supplies and uniforms, and all classrooms are equipped with electronic resources such as computers and text books. Implementing and maintaining proper teacher training is also a major focus of these programs.

Over the past years we have built more than 15 schools, set up more than 10 computer and library, teacher training and motivational labs. Our more recent projects are focused on providing students with an international exposure to help them later on in their career. Along with career counselling resources, we provide exchange programs for students to gain an understanding of different cultures and potential career opportunities.
