Kids at School in Nepal (KASIN) was founded in 2005 as a small charity and is making a big difference to the lives of hundreds of Nepali children. Nepal is one of the most beautiful countries on earth and its people are utterly delightful but it is also one of the poorest countries in the world, Nepal is the poorest country in South Asia and the 17th poorest in the world. Approximately 25% of Nepalis live below the poverty line and 30% are illiterate (20% of males and nearly 40% females so there is a huge gender imbalance).

Many teachers in remote schools have little formal training. KASIN’s  funds go directly into projects, improving school facilities, providing teacher training, learning materials etc. Our Trustees visit annually at their own expense to ensure funding has been allocated in line with our constitution ‘To advance the education of disadvantaged children in Nepal’.

We are well supported by expatriate Nepalis in the UK, who also donate regularly. If this is a cause you feel you could support, please consider donating either a single sum or a monthly payment to KASIN.
