NCEF Announces Earthquake Relief Program: A Comprehensive Plan to Assist Schools and Students
Our President/CEO visited Sindhupalchok twice in May to assess the post-earthquake situation on the ground. Sindhupalchok is the hardest-hit district. 2,746 classrooms and 63,885 private homes are completely destroyed in this district. We used this field visit to formulate a comprehensive earthquake relief program that will leverage our core compentancy in education sector work and our track record of effective implementation of projects in coordination with the government and local bodies and the community.
he Nepalese Children's Education Fund (NCEF) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to develop the potential of disadvantaged Nepalese children through education. NCEF identifies children unable to pursue education because of economic situation of their families. Students are provided with tuition, textbooks and supplies to enroll in school. Our dedicated network of volunteers in Nepal meet regularly with the children and their parents to monitor the progress of the student through school. We dedicate our resources to each child until they complete their high school education (grade 12).
Established in 2002, NCEF has raised about US $150,000 and awarded more than 500 annual scholarships in Kathmandu, Nepalgunj, Patan, Sunsari-Inaruwa, Chitwan, Dolakha and Sindhupalchok. NCEF has identified dedicated local coordinators and volunteers to administer the scholarships while meeting its requirements of financial accountability and regular follow-ups with the children.
NCEF is a project run entirely by volunteers in both Nepal and the US. NCEF has no salaries, compensations, or office expenses.
