Organization Background

United World Schools Nepal is a charity with the aim of providing quality education to children living in faraway rural villages of Nepal through modern teaching and learning methodology. Since its inception in late 2015, the organization has successfully constructed 44 schools in Sankhuwasabha and Gulmi district, thus enrolling and ensuring quality education to over 7000 children.
