We are pleased to announce that Julia Volkman (Maitri Learning's founder) has been invited to join the Board of Advisor's for the Diyalo Foundation. The Diyalo Foundation is a local organization in Nepal founded by a team of well-educated, globally-minded entrepreneurs. They're mission is to develop a sustainable, replicable, and organic educational model specifically for children in rural Nepal. They face many challenges beyond repairing earthquake-damaged infrastructure. Key among these is that only two out of every three Nepali children pass the 10th grade. Diyalo is working to change that.
This is an organization worth watching. If you are interested in community-led, sustainable education, please contact the Diyalo Foundation to see how you can get involved.
