Our Youth Scholars Program identifies children in Nepal who are “at risk" of discontinuing their education. Each child receives a minimum of $200USD of funding per year. These funds are paid directly to schools, clinics, and parents to help subsidize their education and keep them in school.

- Continue with data collection on students.
