Star of Hope Scholarship program started from 2016 after the 2015 earthquake which destroyed many lives in Nepal. During earthquake, NWF conducted many relief program in various remote places in Nepal. While our visit to those places, our team came to witness the suffering of many families which largely impacted the daily life of the children and some of the families were living in very pitiful life before the earthquake. Their adversity was added with the devastating earthquake dragging them down to extreme poverty, lack of basic needs (food, shelter, education) and improper government monitoring.
Our Vision and goals
We truly believe education is the most powerful and best possible tool we can offer our future generation to create a better world for every living being. SOH program was specially initiated to reach out to the children who lost their parents during the earthquake and the kids who have never have gotten the opportunity to attend school due to extreme poverty. Our goal is to provide an educational opportunity to these kids and provide a platform where they can develop to his or her fullest potential to help them create better future for themselves and for the community.
Since April 2016, Stars of Hope have admitted 116 kids providing sponsorship covering their schooling, stationery, uniform, boarding and transportation expenses for staying in the best boarding school available in their local neighborhood. We have committed to support all these kids to complete their schooling. The key factors which drive us to continue SOH program are, it has an amazing ability to reach out to the kid anywhere in Nepal and it also lets the child grow in the local communities where they belong to and stays close to their friends and family.
In the near future, we wish to be able to support those potential students to persuade further studies and full fill their dreams through this program. We are also very much looking forward to sending more kids to school in the coming years.
