Child Sponsorship Program

Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, the per-capita income of Nepali people is 165€ (US $240), and more than 45% of Nepali people are illiterate. There is an unbelievable amount of parents who are unable send their children to school due to the incredibly low income-rate, so their children often have to endure difficult manual labor from a young age. Another major obstacle is that most of the rural population does not understand the value of education.

VSSN has plans to initiate an education program for children and illiterate parents. This information will be used to help gain international attention and support in the form of funds, books, and other supplies, thereby forging a long-term relationship between children who are not able to go to school due to financial problems and people who are interested in making someone's future brighter by making small contributions.

VSSN has designed this program with the idea, and hope, that small contributions of money and supplies can benefit and even change the lives of many poor and needy children and their parents. Parents play a major role in their children's education, as the children spend the majority of their time at home and only five to six hours a day in school if they attend the school. Therefore, VSSN aims to work with children as well as their parents, in an effort to increase the general populations' confidence in the value of education.
