Right to Education

Right to Education program has just started in Konjyosom and Mahankal Rural Municipality from 2021. The main objective of the project is to promote the right to education of girls, children with disabilities and dalit students of all five wards of Konjyosom and all wards except Thuladurlung in Mahankal.


We receive very little funding from the Government of Nepal and rely on donations and sponsorship from charitable organizations and individuals. We had a major donor SCN Norway (SCNN) up to 2009. It used to support 64% of the total expenditure of the organization per year.
