We are committed to reaching as many out-of-school children as possible. But the work doesn't stop once children are enrolled in our schools. We work closely with teachers and community leaders to ensure that UWS students are receiving a high-quality education. Their hard-work and commitment has not gone unnoticed, and in July UWS Baga School in Nepal was named as a 'Model School' in the region. 

This title has been awarded by the education authorities in the Sankhuwasabha District, based on a number of criteria including: 

  • Strong teacher performance and motivation
  • Good involvement of parents in all areas of school life
  • High levels of interaction between the local community and school staff
  • Strong support from local leaders

Both government and UWS schools will now look to UWS Baga School as a guide for excellent education standards. We are extremely proud of the school and this is a real testament to the commitment of the staff, teachers and community in Baga

UWS Baga School opened in 2016 and is currently attended by 100 students from kindergarten to Grade 5. In addition to core subjects like maths and literacy, students take part in regular sport and music lessons. The teachers also support the health of students through hand-washing and tooth-brushing drills. The children are rewarded for their hard work through the 'Student of the Week' board. 

We are excited to see the school share best practice and develop further in the future!
