Mission & Values
Our mission is to provide poor and orphaned children with the financial means to access and complete primary and secondary education in Kathmandu, Nepal, facilitated through fundraising initiatives in Canada.
Our vision of NCEP is based on the belief that education is key to the empowerment of children living in poverty. For tens of thousands of Nepali children, however, access to this basic level of education is denied.
We operate in partnership with a Kathmandu-based organization called Canopy Nepal. Run by a team of passionate young Nepali leaders, Canopy Nepal promotes literacy and education through a slate of highly-lauded initiatives. Our scholarship program is one of these initiatives, and is known as ‘CANSHIP’ in Nepal. Despite being separated by 12,000km, the NCEP teams in Canada and Canopy Nepal have a long-standing friendship, are fully aligned in values and mission, and maintain continuous communication.
We could not do what we do without the hard-working volunteers who make up our vibrant Edmonton, Toronto, and Vancouver Chapters.
Board of Directors
We have an impressive Board full of distinguished, talented, and dedicated leaders.
ALL FOR THE CHILDREN
We pride ourselves on being a lean organization with almost no Canadian overhead, so over 98% of your money goes directly to our programs. We conduct weekly calls with our team in Nepal to ensure progress towards our goals, respond to challenges and opportunities, and thoroughly review the financial records to make sure every dollar goes where it should.
