What is the project
The school for the very poorest of our Nepalese project partner Nepal Matri Griha (NMG) gives very vulnerable children a future by letting them go to school. Families have moved to Kathmandu in the hope of a better life, but the reality often turns out to be different. There is no place for them there either, no paid job, no food and health care and education are a distant dream.
'Education is a bridge from misery to hope'
Nepal Matri Griha helps these migrant children, who often have physical and / or mental problems. At the NMG school, children receive good education from kindergarten to grade 5 and a lot of attention is paid to their personal development and home situation. NMG believes that support from the home front is essential for a child to successfully complete an education. Their families receive special support in the form of information about hygiene and birth control, health and well-being and the importance of education.
In addition to education, children can go for physiotherapy and (basic) healthcare in the 'therapy center' and the 'healthcare unit' located next to the school.
80% of all NMG children goes on to further education after NMG. A fantastic result. It often happens that families have developed in such a way that they can afford this education themselves. NMG has a program for families where this is not possible that supports the further education of these children.
Why did Net4kids choose this project partner?
Nepal Matri Griha was the first local partner Net4kids joined. The personal acquaintance in Kathmandu between two passionate women: Shobha Rai, founder NMG and Anke van den Boog, founder Net4kids, has started the collaboration. Anke was deeply touched by the poverty and hopeless existence of the children, who had no chance without education. To this day, the emotional involvement is the reason that we continue to support this project, which has grown from a small shelter with physiotherapy center into a beautiful school.
How do I make a difference in this project with my company?
The starting point of CSR policy, choose a suitable project that stays close to your DNA and / or the working area of your organization. Doing something right is only credible if it stays close to your core business and core values.
Because of the small scale of the program, for € 270.60 you already support a child at the NMG School, we see that most supporters are private individuals or self-employed persons who want to provide support for 1 or 2 children per year. The possibility that we offer to go on a Stakeholder trip to Nepal, and then for example bring your son or daughter (15+), also appeals to this target group. You can see with your own eyes why Net4kids cannot let go of this project and that our contribution is still very much needed.
