Why Sponsor a Child’s Education?

Nepal is one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world, with an estimated 30% of Nepalis living below the poverty line – some 82% of people live on less than US$2 per day.

Sadly this means that many children miss out on receiving a full education, and remain stuck in the cycle of poverty, with little or no opportunities for career development. Sponsorship through VIN provides children with the invaluable opportunity to enter or remain in education, and realize their full potential.
