Education to underprivileged children

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

The aim of the project is to help these families to cover their financial burden so they are able to send their children nearby schools and get enrolled. The idea behind this is to ensure they receive proper education. Maitreya Foundation has been currently supporting 50 children within this project in some remote and poor villages of Nepal.

As there exist people of scheduled caste, it would be mandatory to back them up simply to lead a decent life in the society.

We at Maitreya Foundation believe in the dignity and equality of every human being and do not promote the caste system. Nevertheless, we are aware that being considered as ‘lower’ or any other caste directly leads to social discrimination and is often a huge obstacle on the way to ease up poverty issues.
