Mondo in Nepal

In Nepal, our projects are handled by a local NGO; Helambu Education and Livelihood Partnership (HELP) headed by our country manager, Jimmy Lama. HELP has a small-dedicated team governed by local residents and an advisory committee of Nepalese education experts.
Our focus in Nepal is to improve the quality of education at community run government schools in the rural villages of Sindupalchowk district

Building new classrooms, toilet blocks, playgrounds (and fencing to ensure safety) and improving drinking water supplies.

Providing desks, benches, whiteboards, blackboard chalks, books, stationery, school uniforms, school bags and other invaluable educational materials.

Funding additional teachers’ salaries, training for teachers, school trips, extra-curricular activities including sports days and SMC/PTA workshops and meetings. Supporting schools to improve through Mondo self-evaluation methodology.

Ensuring that students with potential have the resources to undertake higher education, whilst giving back to their communities.

Nepal Earthquakes 2015

Immediately after the devastating earthquakes in 2015, we delivered emergency supplies and shelter to 3,000 families in 32 villages and completed 205 Temporary Learning Centres in 42 villages in partnership with the Nepalese government enabling schooling to resume for 4,000 children.

In November 2015 we were awarded the prestigious Directory of Social Change Award for our work post-earthquake and are currently working with the Nepali Department of Education to help repair, rebuild and resource a number of schools in the valley.

“We have valued our partnership with Mondo enormously during the last five years in which we have delivered over 10,300 SchoolBags to students in over 80 schools.  What’s especially wonderful is that these SchoolBags are made in Nepal, with supplies sourced in-country, therefore strengthening the local economy. We have seen first-hand how this practical, personal donation to each student is giving them self-worth and an identity as a learner – we’ve also received reports from schools since SchoolBags have been distributed, telling us that both grades and attendance have gone up, which is just fantastic. We are looking forward to continuing, and growing, our partnership with Mondo over the coming years and giving hope to many more children”.
– Luke Simon, Founder of School In A Bag

Volunteer in Nepal

Volunteers have contributed to our programme from the outset and have been an invaluable resource in the energy, ideas and skills they bring. Since the earthquake in 2015, volunteers are an even more important part of our projects, helping to empower local communities and assisting in capacity building.

See how you can make a real difference to local communities by using your skills to train teachers, organise sporting events, survey building projects and much more!
