Stay At School builds and supports boarding houses at schools in remote, marginalised communities in Nepal, enabling children to access and maintain the education that is key to their future and the development of their communities.
In the poorest mountain regions, most children start school but more than three quarters do not complete their education. The drop-out or failure rate is high because Nepali children face huge challenges in getting to school and staying at school. Many spend up to 4 hours walking to and from school each day. Others are kept at home to help with household chores and miss out entirely on the opportunities an education brings.
