The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the leading youth development scheme in the world, now launching in Nepal.

Quality education

We provide education support with teacher training in active teaching and learning techniques, encouraging pupil participation, and helping to wipe out corporal punishment from schools.


We started small, we’ve learned a lot, and we celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2014. We pride ourselves on sustainable youth development policies supporting both formal and non-formal education.
