STRONG SCHOOLS EQUAL EDUCATION

Children of the Mountain is a non-profit organisation supporting the poorest children in rural Nepal,
providing them with opportunities through education and personal development.

“Education can reduce poverty but for it to have impact it must be EQUAL Education.”

JOHN MATTHEWS

It is widely accepted that education has a major impact on poverty. Educating a child is the most effective action in supporting a family climb out of poverty. Children from marginalized communities are denied the opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty through lack of investment in schools and teachers. We advocate for and make such investment. However access to education is not enough, the education provided must foster equality of opportunity.

We believe children from marginalized communities attending public sector schools should have EQUAL school infrastructure, EQUAL teacher capacity and EQUAL encouragement and support as any child attending a fee paying school in the private sector. We proactively advocate for and invest in Equality of Education.
