What is YouMe Nepal?

YouMe Nepal is an NPO founded by two dynamic youth of Nepal in an attempt to pay back to society as well as to inspire other youth to do the same.

The motivation behind the establishment of NPO lies in their selection as scholarship students to study in one of the finest schools of Nepal, which ultimately led their journey to Japan in pursuit of higher studies. While they feel fortunate to have obtained good education, many youth like them are compelled to leave the country in search of labor.

Lack of quality education is the cause of several social problems in Nepal. Realizing this, YouMe Nepal is committed in establishing and running quality schools across the country in manageable quantity. The uniqueness of these schools is that English is the primary medium of teaching. Moreover, unlike other Private Boarding Schools, the schools built by YouMe Nepal charge tuition fee as low as Government Schools maintaining the standard of service.

Q. what is your motivation behind this project?
A. 私はネパールの貧しい村に生まれましたが、一生懸命勉強した結果、今は東京大学大学院で研究をすることができています。なので、自分の村に学校を建設し、恩返しがしたいです.

I was born in a countryside in Nepal but I was fortunate to have obtained higher education in Japan. However, many youth of my generation in Nepal are not as fortunate as me. Lacking an access to better education, many of them are compelled to go and work abroad in countries like Malaysia or Middle East with a minimal money. Comparing what I had gone through in my life with my friends from the same village, I understand that education does make a difference in somebody’s life. With a passion to educating children, I founded this project with Rai.

It was 2013 in Kathmandu when I first met Dinesh at APU alumni gathering. Dinesh was so quiet, each word he spoke was after deep thinking and consideration. He is quick to listen and speak less, thinking something every moment. I instantly thought he has something special in him. Sharad, I met in a kitchen of my office in Japan for the first time same in 2013. He was wearing a funny nit beanie, I was thinking if he is Japanese or Nepali. He himself was probably thinking funny to see non-stop Nepali speaking Didi(me). When I heard about YouMe Nepal from them, I felt in love with the idea like many people did. I’m so privileged to be a part of YouMe Nepal and committed to help in every way I can do.

I was highly inspired by the projects, stories and goals of YouMe Nepal. With which I could initiate social projects on my own. I am really delighted and honored at the same time to be a part of this wonderful team working on a beautiful dream. I have always believed that proper education has power to bring change at the grassroots level. I shall give my best as a team member of this trust to work for the betterment of society, for better tomorrow.
