Project HOPE is a light of hope to every child, to follow their passion and dreams. It is an awareness campaign strategy which is a direct outreach to rural schools at all levels to promote the understanding of importance of education with a motive to reduce the increasing rate of dropout students.
School dropout problem is still the crosscutting issue especially among the government schools in the rural areas of Nepal. Half of the children in rural villages quit school before reaching secondary level. Only few of them continue their higher education. In most of the cases this is due to their financial condition, lack of access to resources and poor management of education system, etc. If we see the current educational statistics, it has been improving compared to last 10 years. But if we see the dropout rate of Dalits, marginalized students, deprived communities then their dropout rate is still in a big volume. The unreached, marginalized, socially excluded groups are highest among the dropout.
This campaign is focused on improving the understanding of parents, children, teachers and community towards importance of education. It completely involves providing motivational session to children in order to convince them to follow their dreams and aims and continue their higher education. We use various practical and action oriented approaches for effective results.
