Shikshya Foundation Nepal, through contribution in education, aims to create a critical mass of leaders who will be instrumental in turning our society into a just equitable, secular, accountable, thinking, questioning, progressive society.
Shikshya means Education- and we strongly believe that while the emphasis on formal education is important, it is equally important that education can take place beyond classrooms, especially through arts and culture.

The executive board members work voluntarily with zero over-heads. Every amount donated goes to implement specific project.
