In schools supported by CHANCE for NEPAL, children taking their School Leaving Certificate have a 95%+ pass rate. Only 51% of children here complete primary level schooling. The national literacy level is 45%.
Education is a major project for CHANCE for NEPAL because the standard of teaching in many village schools is poor with only 10% or fewer attaining their School Leaving Certificate. In schools supported by CHANCE for NEPAL in Kathmandu, children taking their SLC have a 95% or higher pass rate.
While 80% of children (86% boys and 74.6% girls) are admitted to school, only 51% complete primary level and the national literacy level stands at 45%. Out of the total population of 25,371,000, 41% are children below 16 years of age.
We are delighted to have our third school built by Grassroot Movement in Nepal (GMIN). Rosy and Peter Gent from London came across our website
