Mount Summit Boarding School
We are proud to partner with and support Mount Summit Boarding School in their efforts in providing opportunity and access to education for children from poverty affected backgrounds.
The management and founding members of Mount Summit School came together in 2008, and have worked at building the school and improving quality of education and resources within the school. In addition, Mount Summit greatly exceed Government set regulations requiring private schools to provide 10% of enrolments to students affected by financial disadvantage.
108 lives Australia, and the executive and founding members of Mount Summit feel passionately that education is key towards an improved future; this is especially important as a means to create opportunity and change for the future generations of Nepal.
Om Guesthouse manager, Jiwan Poudel, has been a great support to the 108 Lives teams since the first volunteer project in 2012. Jiwan has a keen interest in working in social work and helping on projects supporting those in need within his own country. Working closely with 108 Lives team members, Jiwan remains a trusted and reliable local source of knowledge and support for teams working in Nepal.
Jiwan will also be a participant in future plans towards educationally focused projects in village areas with 108 Lives Australia.
