Plan International Nepal is a recognised leader in education in the country. We are committed to improving access to basic education, especially among girls, children from marginalised communities and those with disabilities.
We place a heavy emphasis on improving the quality of basic education by supporting schools and the educational system to effectively introduce child-friendly and non-violent teaching methods.
We have worked closely with communities to establish village education committees (VECs), in which members receive training on how to develop village education plans, conduct out-of-school-children surveys in school catchment areas, and enable out-of-school children to access basic education either in a formal or non-formal setting.
