Nepal is the poorest country outside Africa.
Education of its children is the long-term answer.
Yet with teachers lacking education and training,
few children are getting the education they deserve.

You can help us address poverty by training teachers.
In cooperation with government,  we target
the teachers of schools in remote areas,
focusing on the Myagdi District of Western Nepal.

Quality Education Nepal is a project of Rotary Australia World Community Service.  We established LEARN as an NGO
in Nepal to train teachers and foster better education in schools.  Funding from numerous sources including Rotary International (Foundation Global Grants) is helping us to reach an ever-increasing number of teachers.
As a Public Benefit Institution, donations are tax-deductible by Australian taxpayers.
