In a global economy, knowledge is the way out of poverty.


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.
