Sponsoring Children :
The Mountain Trust enables sponsors to help the neediest Nepali children to attend school. These include orphans and children born into riverbed families.
We only channel funds to children who we have made thorough checks on, and can be sure their need is genuine.
We organize Sponsorships for around 90 Students a year - from Primary to Secondary, Tertiary and Higher Education levels. We ensure regular feedback on the progress of the children to their sponsors. Sponsors are free to send letters and modest gifts to their sponsored student(s) via the Mountain Trust. Sponsors may visit their sponsored students accompanied by a member of the Trust's staff. For further details, please ask.
The cost of sponsoring a child is very low by Western standards - from approximately €50 for a year's education including uniform and books. That's not even € 1 a week! Considering it costs around 2-3,000 Pounds a year to put a British Student through Secondary education in the public sector, the difference illustrates the inherent inequalities of opportunity.
Sponsors are free to suggest naming the scholarship in their or a loved one's honor.
The minimum commitment is for a year and we ask Sponsors to support their Student(s) for at least three years to avoid disrupting their education.
We are also actively working to support Students in blind schools as part of our ongoing commitment to assist our hardest hit cousins in Nepal.
