Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Continue to serve the schools we have built and the children of our communities through providing both capital and educational project assistance. We have 25 students in our Higher Education Scholarship Program and are exploring opportunities to provide specific educational opportunities with programs such as computer literacy and intense instruction in English.

GCE partners with the community to INVEST in schools - we do not provide hand-outs of charity. The community must own, operate, and maintain the facilities GCE provides. We believe "You nurture what you create" and involve the community in the school's creation.

Nepal Country Director Tanka Kapri is our main capability in Nepal and spearheads GCE's activities there. We also utilize local talent and involve the community.

Current programs under consideration include more computer/technology education and a teacher training program, especially relating to English skills. We are also considering other school projects and a scholarship program.
