Nepal has an estimate population of 30 million and only about 39%of the total population is literate. There is also a wide variation among the literacy rates of the male and that of the females. According to the Central bureau of Statistics (CBS), the literacy rate of the females is only about 25% while it is about 54% for the male population. Realizing the fact and the need for proper education in the society for the overall development of the nation, KTE initiated a Scholarship program in the year 2002 to all the children of the small farmers of Panchthar District.
Scholarships are provided to all children of the farmers to study in the local English Boarding School and the Community School. Various institutions and tea buyers have provided the scholarship funds in the past years. We are grateful to Nepali Bazzaro for initiating the project and Zensho for taking the baton from this year.
We have provided 2300 students with scholarship till date and 93 are currently on this year's program. With the number of students growing each year, Nepal Tea LLC plans to make the model sustainable through "Adopt from Abroad" program.
The Adopt from Abroad Program
Solely provide a child with education support.
Interested people will be able to cover the expenses of a single child. After we review students on a need-based basis, a basic profile of the child will be sent to you along with his/her study reports.
