Who We Are

Bloom Nepal Foundation provides scholarships for good primary education to underprivileged children from remote areas of Nepal.

Education remains the single most important aspect to guide a progressive society. With this as our guiding principle, we are a charitable organisation aspiring to make a difference to the lives of underprivileged children with undescribed talents by providing them a equitable access to good primary education.

What we do

Seek

Our partner schools reach out to community schools spread across Nepal and seek the students who have not had enough intellectual push due to limited resources. Selection is done based on following four criteria:

  • The student has been studying in community school(s) for last three years.
  • The student is top of his/her school or the class.
  • The student has demonstrated need for support.
  • The student and its parents are highly motivated.

Educate

Our partner schools provide interest based education. Our (day) residential model encourages children to do more than just fact based learning. They explore their talents like music, sports, arts, science and programming.

Empower

Our schools create a setting where we inspire and motivate children to think different. To become creative and motivated to make a change.

Change

Education is the best weapon in the fight against poverty. We want our students to become changemakers for Nepal.
