Combat Child Poverty In Nepal
In Nepal, 50% of children do not complete primary education. Resolve International needs your help to tackle this problem.
Our main aim is to increase access to primary education in Nepal, one of the world's poorest countries. Only 34% of children from the poorest groups in Nepal can read and write, yet literacy is a key to progress within education and overcoming poverty.
Books and Pencils
Our programme to provide writing books, pens and pencils to improve writing skills. Many parents in Nepal are too poor to buy the resources their children need for learning. This can stop them from enrolling their children at school. Only 20% of Dalits enrol at primary school.
One Book — One Child
School libraries are created by providing one reading book for each child in the primary schools we support. How can you learn to read without something to read from?
Social Justice for Children
Our BURSARY scheme pays the exam fees to enable the poorest children to progress. We are helping parents that are too poor to pay the examination fees. Up to 50% of children in Nepal do not complete primary school. We want to help to reduce this figure and encourage social justice for children.
In-Service Teacher Training for Literacy
Literacy is being developed as an essential component in equipping more children with the skills they need to carry their education on into secondary schools.
The Resolve International sanitation programme has been successful in building toilets for Schools, Women's Groups and families living in Nepal. We have installed water for whole village and two schools. The aim of the sanitation programme is to prevent the life threatening diseases occuring. As many as 13,000 children under the age of five, die each year because of the lack of sanitation. If we can provide sanitation, the number of deaths can be dramatically reduced.
