Since its start in 1976, World Education Nepal has been a leader in improving basic literacy for poor and marginalized groups in Nepal. Using a holistic approach, World Education Nepal has provided thousands of women and marginalized groups the foundation to build their own livelihoods through economic and literacy classes. This photo documentary shows some of the women and communities we have worked with in the Gulmi and Arghakhanchi districts. Literacy and economic classes make a difference for many Nepalis across the country, and this photostory is a testimony to this fact.

When Dikchhaya was a girl, she was forced to drop out of school because her parents could not afford her school fees. She entered a life of bonded labor, and then fought as a soldier during the armed conflict in Nepal. After the war, she struggled to earn enough money to feed her family and could not pay for her daughter to go to school.
Dikchhaya wants her daughter Liza to have a better life than she did.
World Education is working in Dikchhaya’s community to improve the overall quality of education, involve mothers in their children’s learning, and help mothers start small businesses to support their families. Dikchhaya joined a World Education mother’s group where she learned basic education and entrepreneurship skills. She took out a loan through the program to open her own small shop, selling snacks and supplies near a school, and pays Liza’s school fees with the income.
Now that Dikchhaya can afford to send Liza to school regularly, Liza’s grades are improving and she is learning to read. World Education also works with teachers, school management, and local governments to improve the quality of education for Liza and other students in Nepal. Liza and Dikchhaya are just two of the more than 120,000 Nepalese children and adults who benefited directly from World Education’s comprehensive learning programs in 2016.
In Nepal, teaching and learning reading in the early grades remains a significant challenge,with most primary school students unable to read at grade level. Although enrollment in public schools is high, drop-out and grade repetition are common-place. Teachers often resort to rote instruction methods, resulting in memorization rather than actual reading. World Education and its partners are working to strengthen early grade reading in the weakest public schools through learning assessments, teacher training, and the introduction of grade-appropriate reading materials and activities for early learners.
Worldwide, the use of child soldiers is seen as one of the worst forms of child labor; during the People’s War in Nepal, many children under the age of 18 became involved with different armed groups. This document highlights how World Education and its partners used community sensitization and reintegration activities to assist children who had been associated with armed forces or groups. This booklet also identifies the most successful approaches and the major challenges faced by children returning to school or those in vocational training and apprenticeships.
