Maya Universe Academy cover
Mission A youth movement providing free education in rural Nepal. We provide space for people all around the world to volunteer and take part in grass roots development process.
Description Our innovative funding method allows parents to work at the school for two days every month instead of paying money. We use this time from the parents to produce agricultural and handicraft products. At Maya we ask volunteers to contribute 10$ per day for the duration of their stay to cover food and accommodation expenses, as well as salaries to Nepali teachers and staff. Discounts and scholarship opportunities are possible. Nepalese students can get a 50% discount. We are a social entrepreneurship venture trying to accomplish what international INGOs, NGOs and the government have always promised but continuously failed to deliver.
