Vision & Mission

 

OUR VISION

Edulift is a non-profit educational initiative dedicated to transforming and empowering the lives of young people and children from marginalised Himalayan and Tibetan ethnic groups. We utilise innovative holistic and experiential-based educational methods based on relevant life-skills and practical learning. We work to incorporate our methodologies into the mainstream curricula in Nepal through lobbying and advocacy work and key stakeholders. We imagine a future where education provides the necessary skills to prepare young people to lead more purposeful lives contributing to their individual well being and that of their wider community.

 

OUR MISSION

EduLift techniques ensure that the the focus in the classroom shifts from ‘teaching’ to ‘learning’; practicing an integrated approach to active learning where experiential-based education is at the heart of our methodology. We emphasize building the relevant competencies and skills needed for students to tackle the increasingly complex challenges being confronted in our communities and throughout the world through various programs:

The “Arts and Language Program” is facilitated to improve both written and spoken English, English literature comprehension and knowledge, and to promote appreciation of different art forms as pathways towards creative expression, communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills.

The “Explorers Program” aims to support and empower students (post Grade 10) to develop improved thinking skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, source analysis and social-emotional skills, thereby stimulating their intellectual growth and social well-being.

The “Careers Counselling Program” is to facilitate students to create individual actions plans that assist their transitional phases from school to further education or employment.

Our “Teacher Training Program” provides the theoretical orientation of a fundamental constructivist approach to teaching and learning processes and techniques in the classroom.
