Mission Literacy is an international level programme from Solidarity Nepal which focuses on basic education for underprivileged children and youth. The largest single project ever undertaken by us is the dream to build a new government recognized school under Education Project called “Mission Literacy” to give our children a far better education and ultimately a much better future. With outside admissions we hope to have a student base of over 2000 children within 2 years. The school has potential to support the orphanage through admission fees and other facilities. Outside of school hours we hope to run adult education classes, free medical camps, conferences and have a facility for local community meetings.
Right now we are working on Stage 2 of the building plans, after we decided on a basic design we have now begun to look at the practical layout of the school as well as things like room sizes, plumbing and lighting. Stage 3 will involve taking the plans to an architect for final checking.
Solidarity believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there’s no better place to start than in the corridors of Education. Because education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: means, because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues- from healthcare to appropriate social behavior to understanding one’s rights – and in the process evolve as a better citizen.
Solidarity Nepal’s educational initiatives include Basic “0-3 yrs”, Pre-school “3-6 yrs”, Non Formal Education “6-14 yrs” (non-school going), Remedial Education “6-14 yrs” (school going), Bridge Course “14-18 yrs” (drop-outs), Functional Literacy “18-45 yrs” women and Family Life Education for adolescent girls.
Solidarity works with under-privileged children under difficult circumstances such as child labor, children of poorest of the parents, children inflicted and affected with HIV/AIDS, street and runaway children, children with rare disability (Autism, Deaf & Dumb, Blind, and Spastic etc.), disaster struck children and slum children etc.
"We want to make Nepal cent percent literate". Children are the future of a nation. For an emerging and developing country like Nepal, development of underprivileged children holds the key to the progress of the nation itself.
Education for underprivileged Children is the key whether we are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights issues.
