Dubai College Foundation
Almost one quarter of the world's poorest children are not enrolled in primary education. In rural areas of Nepal, this proportion rises to more than half. Poverty and social exclusion remain key barriers to education for hundreds of thousands of children in this area.
The Dubai College Foundation supports United World Schools by building and maintaining Jaisithok School in the central Nepalese province of Gulmi.
Our aim is to offer education to the poorest and most remote communities who would not have had access to this facility otherwise.
Completion of the construction took place in September 2019 and the school now provides education to approximately 180 boys and girls from Kindergarten through to Year 6 of all ethnicities and castes.
