Currently there are four projects in four districts of Nepal. A project is a designated school and a group of students. The selected school is supported for stationery, extracurricular items, minor renovations, sponsored teachers and other accessories to improve teaching/learning process. A group of needy children/students are selected by the a school management whom the foundation put into its system. Those children are provided with school uniforms, foot wears, stationery, school bags, extra English books, and registration fee. Primary education is the beginning of life and this stage is also vulnerable therefore the foundation starts its support from pre-primary and primary grades. It is a very long commitment to support from pre-primary or grade one to high school graduation.
