Schools & Education

Changing Lives Nepal has supported 16 local schools, benefiting over 8,000 students in the area surrounding our Children’s Home.

Together with local partner Neel Shahi, Director of TEAM Nepal, we have helped to build, repair and renovate regional schools and hostels near Talamarang village. We have constructed new classrooms as student populations have expanded and as schools have been destroyed or damaged by natural disasters. 

CLN has renovated stark kindergarten classrooms with colorful educational murals of the alphabet and early reading words. We’ve also provided furniture to suit the needs and size of very young children as well as computer labs for older students.

Because hostels are a critical factor for children to be able to attend higher grades, CLN has provided gap funding to help complete hostels for more than 200 children from extremely remote villages to live and study. Without hostels, children would have to walk 2-3 hours per day in order to attend schools for higher grades and this often causes high dropout rates.

These new hostels allow students to stay onsite at their closest high school, while maintaining access to their families and farms. Our plan is to make education increasingly accessible to the children of Nepal.
