Enable villages to become more self-sustaining
The REACH for Nepal Foundation encourages and facilitates opportunities for Nepalese people to complete vocational training through local providers. This will improve employment opportunities, create jobs and improve stability and harmony in remote villages. With in-demand skills, people won’t need to travel to the Middle East or India looking for work.
Assist local communities to rebuild schools and libraries
With abundant local knowledge, the REACH for Nepal Foundation identifies schools in Western Nepal that assistance help rebuilding classrooms or other facilities. These projects are funded through fundraising activities in Australia.
In all rebuilding projects, we use local labour and materials. This creates jobs and stimulates the economy by investing funds locally.
Provide education scholarships and student support
The REACH for Nepal Foundation, with the support of its Nepalese director, uses local networks to identify students in remote Western Nepal that would most benefit from an education scholarship.
When undertaking school projects or visits, the foundation donates used Australian textbooks to students. If you have school textbooks in good condition that you would like to donate for distribution in Nepalese schools, contact us.
Enhance the skills of local teachers
The REACH for Nepal Foundation encourages qualified Australian teachers to travel to Nepal and volunteer to pass on their skills and share their knowledge with local teachers.
Extend participation in sporting activities
Children who grow up in Nepal are often told to study hard. A good education helps graduates find jobs and provide a better future for their families, but it is only one part of the equation. At REACH for Nepal Foundation, we believe that sports participation is also beneficial to school-aged children.
Sport is a common language throughout the world, as it connects people. Participating in a sporting activity helps to:
- Develop decision making abilities
- Develop communication skills
- Build self esteem
- Provide safe and supportive community spaces for women
- Improve quality of life for people with a disability through participation and social integration
The REACH for Nepal Foundation encourages grassroots programs in villages with sports including cricket, football, soccer, badminton and table tennis. In the initial phase, the Foundation distributes sporting equipment to the school administration.
