Experiencing the journey, changing the destiny.

Citizen Bank presents Teach For Nepal Walkathon officially came to an end on Saturday, June 30th, 2018. The event included more than 700 young professionals and students from 40 different colleges and universities who raised money to support the work of Teach For Nepal in ending education inequity in Nepal.
 
Speaking at the event, Teach for Nepal Board chairperson Reshu Aryal said, "It feels always good to see the involvement of the youth with Teach For Nepal and I hope this kind of support from youth is very needed to end the educational inequity in Nepal."

The walk that started at Labim Mall, Lalitpur passed through Thapathali, Maitighar, Bhadrakali, Sundhara, Tripureshwor, Kupendole and ended back in the Labim Mall.

The Walkathon then came into an end with a closing ceremony that featured a musical performance from folk instrumental band Kutumba. A select group of participating college students also performed during the closing ceremony.

"Walkathon became a huge success to bring together college students in Kathmandu valley for raising massive awareness and bringing together people from different walks of life by raising money to support the Teach For Nepal fellows who will be teaching in the remotest part of Nepal," expressed Shisir Khanal, CEO of Teach for Nepal. "Charity walk was designed for the general public to experience the pain of over 60 lakhs students, attending public schools, who walk hours to get to a school but are still deprived of quality education."

Students attending public schools come from low-income families and socially marginalized communities. In rural Nepal, students of Teach For Nepal Fellows come to school on foot walking long distances. Some of our students walk as much as 3 hours one way, just to get to a school.

Citizen Bank presents Teach For Nepal Walkathon is thus a solidarity walk to commit ourselves that no children regardless of socio-economic status will be left behind.

Teach For Nepal Fellows are currently teaching in 51 schools across six districts in Nepal - Lalitpur, Sindhupalchowk, Dhanusa, Parsa, Dang and Lamjung reaching the lives of more than 10,000 students. Teach For Nepal has justed opened its application for the next academic years Fellowship. Interested change-makers are encouraged to apply by visiting www.teachfornepal.org
