Due to other factors in relation to the priority needs of both our local partner REED Nepal, and the communities in which AHF works in Nepal; funding from this project was directed to support the education of women and girls through the AHF’s flagship program, Teacher Training and Quality Education (TTQE).
The overall objectives are aligned to supporting the progression of women and girls through both quality teaching and education and creating opportunities for life-long learning and career progression.
Without access to a quality education, children in remote communities like the Everest region of Nepal remain deprived of the life skills and knowledge gained from education and are more likely to remain trapped in the cycle of poverty. In response to this need, the AHF is helping to ensure that all children (with a particular focus on girls) have access to a quality education that can lift them out of poverty.
The funding from the Footprints Network supported the vocational training of teachers in techniques to improve the quality and delivery of child-centered learning. This is implemented on the ground by AHF’s Nepalese NGO partner REED Nepal. Trainers from REED visit the schools in remote communities to observe the training in-school and provide valuable feedback and ongoing support.
REED is accredited by the Nepalese Government’s National Centre for Education and Development and implemented in coordination with the Ministry of Education. AHF’s TTQE Program is recognized as one of the most comprehensive education programs in Nepal.
In the 2016/17 Financial Year, the following outcomes were achieved:
“… I believe the TTQE Program and the training I received are key reasons I was awarded the National Education Award in 2014 from the Ministry of Education and the Best Head Teacher Award From REED in 2017.”

The TTQE Program has been running for over 15 years and will continue to be delivered by AHF in partnership with REED Nepal. AHF has a strategic focus of building long-term capacity in the communities where we work so any change is sustained.
AHF can make special arrangements for supported visits to projects depending on the current priorities and resources of our NGO partner and the schools at the time.
