Education is a high priority in Umbrella and we ensure that the children in our care receive the best possible schooling and support we can provide.
Child traffickers often prey on vulnerable rural families, promising ‘the best education in Kathmandu’. We dispel the illusion that quality education can only be found in the capital by only sending them to government schools similar to those available in their home districts. By offering the same opportunities their parents can provide, we have encouraged more families to take back their children.
Education does not end when school is finished. Our Next Steps Education Programme (NSEP) provides them with the personal skills and further qualifications to become employable and responsible Nepali citizens.
