Mission Education Nepal is a socially responsible, non for profit and non government organization established in 26 January 2011 under Nepal Organization Act- 1978 and it received affiliation to the Social Welfare Council (SWC), with the intention to provide formal education to all underprivileged children of Nepalese society by sponsorship.

We believe that children as the future leaders and the builders of the nation need special attention and care and their issues have to be well reflected in the development planning process of the country. Many improvements as regards to quality of education, physical facilities and infrastructure development are very much needed.

Child labor reflects the socio-economic condition of a country. As the families have to face difficulties arising from economic hardship, it directly affects and has a long term implications on the status of children. In such a dire economic reality the children invariably become the first casualties in that they have to contribute their share of labor so that their families can afford the two square meals a day. Nepal has its share of problem as far as child labor is concern. We can see our children working everywhere from disorganized to organized sectors. As per population last census, it shows that one percent of the households (39955 households) in Nepal has domestic child workers and these domestic workers consists of 57295 in numbers of which 62.8 percent are males and 37.2 percent females. Families can’t afford high-pay education, hence their child are kept at home or sent to become a child worker. So we hope that our small initiative can change few life, can provide them few reasons to smile.

Our Mission:

-  Providing formal education and other relevant facilities to underprivileged children of our society.
- To work and raise voice against any kind of child violence, exploitation and to promote child right.
- Facilitate child to enhance their future.
- Campaigns for education awareness.
- Joining hand with other partner organizations for sharing and learning.
- Establishing one library a year.

Who are we?

Focusing purely on social work, we are an organization that is registered with the District Administration Office (DAO), Kathmandu and affiliated with Social Welfare Council, Nepal. We are a mission; we are “Mission Education Nepal”.

What do we do?

In simple words, we don’t do ‘big’ things. Focusing on Nepal as our work area, we help those who haven’t been able to study, those who have been forced to leave school early because of their unfavorable socio-economic situation and the children of those genuinely poor people who have to work hard just to make their ends meet, by helping them to continue their formal education and schooling. In a way it can be said that we provide full scholarships to the most needy as far as our resources permit.

How do we help?

We help by identifying the children who really need our help and admit them into schools. We bear all the economic responsibilities of the expenses required for their school (including admission fees, tuition fees, etc.) and educational materials (including uniform, books, copy, pens, etc).

What’s the source of our funds?

We believe that Nepalese have to be the ones dealing with Nepal’s problems. Thus we ask the support from all Nepalese living within or outside the borders of Nepal.

Presently, the main sources of our funds are those Nepali donors who are satisfied with our work or are worried about the problems occurring in Nepal. We also generate some funds from membership fees charged to those who are willing to be affiliated with our organizations as well as annual donations committed by specific donors (whom we call ‘annual donors’).

What activities are we doing in the present?

We are currently supporting the education of 4 children in Nepal. Besides this we are also involved in establishing and upgrading a library at Saraswati School, Koteshwor in Kathmandu.

Where are our offices?

We don’t have any office or branches, and we perform all our official functions through the homes of specific members. Frankly speaking we don’t have the economic capacity to sustain an office. Our focus so far has been to support more people from the donors’ aid, rather than waste it senselessly on running an office.

How much do we spend on administration?

In the last fiscal year of 2067/2068 BS (i.e., 2011 AD) our administration expenses was around 8%, while its come to around 10% in the current fiscal year. Most of these expenses include compulsory government fees like registration, and re-registration, while the rest include stationary fees for our organization.

What do we do with the donation we receive?

We spend 100% the donated amount on exactly those activities and plans, on which the donors wish to contribute.

What are our future plans?

We aim to admit at least 5 new children in schools from the next academic session that starts from June 2013. We also aim to establish at least 1 library in a community/governmental school in Nepal every year.

And what is your Rupees 5 lakhs (Five Hundred Thousand) fund deposit plan?

Our plan is to select at most 2 districts every year within Nepal and collect NRS. 5, 00,000 per district. The collected amount would then be deposited in some reliable financial institutions on a yearly fixed-deposit basis. The interest received from such deposits would then be invested on the education of at least 5 children of the very district where the funds are collected. Our plan here is to support at least 10 children from 2 districts every year in their education and thus contribute something to develop Nepal.

What don’t we do?

We don’t sell dreams. We instead give efforts to change dreams to reality; a dream of seeing an educated, prosperous and peaceful Nepal.

What do we want?

Your support, contribution, goodwill and help.
