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

Funding additionalÂ teachers’ salaries, training for teachers, school trips, extra-curricular activities including sports days and SMC/PTA workshops and meetings.Â 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.
“We have valued our partnership with Mondo enormouslyÂ duringÂ the last fiveÂ years in which we have delivered over 10,300 SchoolBags to students in over 80Â schools.Â Whatâ€™s especially wonderful isÂ that theseÂ 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 – weâ€™ve alsoÂ received reports from schools since SchoolBags have been distributed, telling us that both grades andÂ attendance have gone up, which is just fantastic.Â We are looking forward to continuing, and growing, our partnership with Mondo over the coming years and giving hope to many more children”.
