Education to underprivileged children

In addition to helping the children in the orphanage, Maitreya Foundation is also running a project to support the needy children in the villages of Nepal. This project targets those who are living in their homes with parents or other guardians, but are not able to cover the expenses of formal school education.

The project is to help these families to cover the educational expenses so these families are able to send their children to nearby schools. Maitreya Foundation is currently supporting 50 children in some of the remote and poor villages of Nepal. The Foundation gives priority to the children belong to the families of scheduled caste.

We at Maitreya Foundation believe in the dignity and equality of every human being and discourage the caste system. We also create awareness in the societies that being considered as ‘lower’ or any other caste directly leads to social discrimination and is often a huge obstacle on the way to resolve the poverty related issues.
