The Problem

Education is increasingly necessary to allow people to reach their full potential in an evermore complex world.

Mountain people have always been isolated to a certain extent by virtue of their geographical isolation, but increasing populations, changing economic situations and changing expectations and aspirations make education increasingly important in even the most remote areas.

Widespread illiteracy, poor access to educational facilities, poorly trained teachers and exclusion based on gender are all features of the current situation in remote areas throughout our operational area.
