In the 2012-2013 academic year in Nepal (April 2012 – March 2013), NCEP was supporting 23 scholars. Of those 23, 4 wrote the SLC (School Leaving Certificate) exams and graduated, and one is being supported from this point on by another partner organization. The remaining 18 progressed to the next grade and were renewed as NCEP scholars.
In the 2013-2014 academic year, we awarded NCEP scholarships to 18 new students, increasing our total scholars to 36 (12 at Shanti Nikunja, 9 at Durbar High School, 7 at Shree Bal Kumari Ni Ma Vi, 4 at Sitala Devi School, and 4 unique cases at other schools). We matched these scholars with 36 committed Field Volunteers at 4 colleges (Trinity College, Chelsea College, Ace Institute, and King’s College). You can see a map of these schools and colleges here.
