EducationIn a global economy, knowledge is the way out of poverty.
GIVE THEM THE TOOLS THEY NEED FOR TOMORROW.
Currently, only 57.4% of Nepalese adults can read.
Despite hopeful progress being made in recent years, Nepal’s population still struggles to read, putting the people at a severe disadvantage.
Those who can’t read find it hard to secure better jobs in the city, trade in the global market, or even enroll their children in school.
They’re literally cut off from the world, isolated to their impoverished life.
A full third of Nepal’s children go to work instead of school.
UNICEF reports that child labor rates in Nepal are at a staggering 33.9%. Without money or food, these families are forced to send their children to work instead of school.
But this only keeps the cycle of poverty spinning.
As long as poverty continues to grip the country, Nepal’s orphan population will rise and the crimes of the human trafficking will increase.
24,000 classrooms were destroyed during the 2015 earthquake leaving many students without any option for an education, their only hope to escape poverty.
Nepal has invested in public education, but the severity of recent natural disasters threaten to set the country back by years.
It’s only through people like you, those in the international community who care, that Nepal has a chance to get back on its’ feet.
When you give to WMOO’s Child Education initiative, you’re not just giving them necessities for today. You’re giving them hope for tomorrow.
Education is a visionary endeavor.
You invest in education when you want to give a hungry person more than a fish: You’re teaching them how to fish.
WMOO’s Education program provides necessary funding for families with extreme financial needs and Nepalese orphans to go to school and learn critical academic skills like math, science, and hygiene as well as vocational skills.
Besides learning their own native languages, WMOO is devoted to helping Nepalese people learn English at our Language Training Center so they can participate in a globalized society.
At the Training Center, we offer English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. Those students or professionals, who did not have the opportunity to go to bilingual private schools, express great desire to learn English so they can travel internationally, study abroad, or reach their career dreams.

It only takes a simple step.
