About Educate the Children

Educate the Children works with women and children in Nepal to improve health, welfare, and self-sufficiency by building skills that families can pass down to later generations.

Nepal's rural poor women improve their lives by learning to read and write; plant kitchen gardens; save and borrow through their group's micro-credit system; learning about health, nutrition, and their legal rights. ETC establishes community-based micro-lending and literacy programs, provide scholarships for girls and teach families skills to improve nutrition and sanitation in the home. ETC is dedicated to creating community and family structures that remain self-sustaining well in to the future.
