TOIT (The Organization for Indigent Tots), Nepal
Partner - TOIT was established as NGO in 2000 to create a platform for children where they could build up their career opportunity. Our primary mission is to provide quality education for poor but worthy children regardless of their origin, cast, creed or gender. Those educational activities are based on formal and non-formal education. Since the establishment, we have been able to provide educational opportunities to more than 1,000 disadvantaged children. In countries like Nepal, education is expensive, because of which it has been the prerogative to children from wealthy families. Most of the existing schools are focused on certificate-orientated education where children are filled only with information. TOIT believes in providing education with a difference where children could bloom naturally. We encourage figuring out their inner passion with recreation and skill-based education.
