Our main aim is to improve the quality of education and to provide basic health to the unreached children of Nepal whilst using a sustainable holistic development approach where there are meaningful partnerships with all stakeholders.
GAN is dynamic organization which has been working exclusively in Nepal for two decades to help develop the education system and implement social change. We work to enhance the rising generation’s life chances in Nepal by widening its access to and participation in empowering, community sustaining, gender-equalising basic education and vocational skills development. We are registered at Kathmandu District Administration Office with affiliation with the Social Welfare Council in Nepal, and with the Charity Commission in the UK.
Access to education is not the same as simply "going to school" - minimum levels of infrastructure and a child-friendly environment are fundamental requirements if children are to experience a complete education. Gender sensitivity, an interactive pedagogy and opportunities for children to enhance the development of their social and emotional life skills are also critical. These factors are prerequisites for quality education, and to narrow the gap between the "haves" and the "have-nots" and create an equitable society.
GAN believes that children are not only the future of the country, but that they are also active citizens in the present, and the way in which real and lasting change must come about.
