CHANCE is a youth development service organisation funding education programmes in Nepal. We aim to address quality of education and provide personal development through the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award.


CHANCE (Charity Helping Advancement of Nepali Children’s Education) provides sustainable aid for education in Nepal. We address access and quality of education and provide educational facilities through income generation projects with local co-operatives.

We launched the charity in April 2004 and registered in the UK in August 2004. Our programmes help to progress quality education and provide young people with development opportunities.
