UWS Nepal

UWS Nepal is a charity dedicated to improving educational opportunities for underprivileged children. We started operations in 2015 as a non-profit, the same year our country witnessed a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Post-earthquake UWS Nepal has constructed 536 earthquake-resistant classrooms across 216 communities, educating 13,451 students in our Sankhuwasabha, Gulmi, and Taplejung districts. We aim to provide quality education to all children, and to reach that goal; we work to improve educational opportunities for children living in marginalized communities and remote regions. Our education transformation philosophy is maintained by developing and introducing child-friendly pedagogies that allow for more significant innovation in the classroom and greater engagement between the in-class lessons and real life, parents-teacher relationship, and harmonized relationship between local government and local communities in a shared mission to ensure a future for children in the communities where we work.
