This year our Project with our JEPC students is to send our children to a Private English Boarding School. On the surface, this year’s project appears to focus in and around education, but in so doing, Building Education is actually able to branch out and support and foster a number of other equally important supports and services in the area. Ultimately, Building Education is using the education of the community’s children as a means to bring about significant and much needed changes within the slums. In starting first with the education of our children, it is our aim to effect and impact a greater number of areas, including the overall development of the slums and the creation of contributing leaders within the community itself.
Education in Nepal is a privilege as the costs for admissions, uniforms and books are high. Being born into the slums, they repeat the cycle of poverty because their parents are put into the lowest caste system making it difficult to find work and nearly impossible to afford education let alone feed their families.
By providing education to the children, Building Education serves to break that barrier.
Private English Boarding School ensures the highest of education with the most qualified teachers – most importantly, they teach all subjects in English.
Because tourism takes a vital role in the economy of Nepal, learning the English language fluently provides students with the greatest opportunities to a stable job in the future, empowering them to be the change in their own community.
