  • World Youth International
    On September 14, 1999, WYI opened Nepal’s first primary and secondary school, in honour of the late Robert Hoey, with a small group of 24 students. 18 years later, more than 550 students are attending the school, and it has been recognised as one of Nepal’s leading learning institutions. The school is in Gokarna, approximately 1 hour drive from Kathmandu.

  • Come-Share education programme
    Come-Share, our project in Sri-Lanka, provides educational funding for children from year ten (O level) onwards. Education up until year ten is free, and many children from poor backgrounds can complete up until year ten unassisted. After this point many children are forced into manual labour by lack of funds, even if their school results are very good.
