In fact, you may lose your job because of the stigma of leprosy, or the disease may leave you unable to use your hands or walk properly. Not only that, but your children may also have trouble finishing school because your livelihood is gone and you cannot pay for books and uniforms.

Navitas is a leading global education provider, helping thousands of students obtain an education. This year, Navitas has pledged to expand your project in Nepal by providing 150 scholarships every year for the next three years!

And not only is education a fundamental human right, but the sustainable transformation of the world depends on it!

They have distinguished this goal as essential to reaching the other sixteen. Providing scholarships is one of the recommended ways we can reach this goal together.
