Investing in education is the single most effective means of reducing poverty.
Education is a key need, along with other basics, in today’s world for anyone, anywhere to have a good quality of life. In developing countries like Nepal, basic education is crucial to alleviating poverty, reducing inequality and driving economic growth.
Quality of education in Nepal is generally poor, characterized by high drop-out rates, lack of child- and girl-friendly facilities and child-centered learning environments. Nepal is home to 26.6 million people, with children younger than 15 years old making up more than 40% of the population. More than one in three people in Nepal live in extreme poverty, subsisting on less than $1 per day.
Why Mission Literacy?
Education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people, its future and is critical to reducing poverty and inequality. Education plays a decisive role in a child’s development. Mission Literacy campaign helps to improve participation of children, their parents and the community in education planning, improve learning levels and reduce dropout rates of children.

It has a goal to benefit more than 1 million people through learning process as it is highly recognized, participated and supported by Medias, colleges, corporate houses, youth agencies, government, political figures, NGOs, local organizations and local people.
