Help Us Build A School! Give the gift of education – Help us build a school!
If you want to do something truly remarkable and life changing, then build a school in a remote community of Nepal. Creative Hands has the experience and local knowledge to guide you through the process. Working in partnership with the local community, we will help you to build a school that is sustainable, gives every child access to a good education and becomes the focus of community life.
See the transformation unfold…

Through our Build a School programme we carry out teacher training, build classrooms and infrastructure, provide books, desks and other supplies, and develop school governance capacity.
The introduction of free primary education in Nepal some years ago resulted in massive increases in enrolment. However, as this was not matched by an increase in resources, the majority of poor children in Nepal still cannot access a decent education. Children who are lucky enough not to be sent out to work attend overcrowded and poorly managed schools, and must grapple with teacher shortages, poor teaching, absenteeism and a lack of learning materials. This results in 3 out of 4 pupils dropping out before completing primary school and only 20% achieving recommended competency levels in literacy and numeracy.
What We Do
We believe that quality education will only be achieved when parents are involved. Creative Hands works with parents, children, teachers and government education staff to identify the key problems each school faces and prepare a 3 year ‘School Development Plan‘. We then work with the school, the parents and government staff to implement the plan and transform the school by:
- improving infrastructure;
- continuing to increase parental involvement;
- improving standards of teaching and learning;
- strengthening school management; and
- increasing gender and HIV/AIDS awareness.
By working together, the schools have seen a dramatic rise in attendance and in the number of pupils going on to secondary school, increasing their chances of a brighter future.
Our aim is not just to support the schools, but to develop a model which can continue working without us.
