Each child at Quilts for Kids Nepal is a "first generation" student and each child has a unique story. One by one the young people are lifting up and changing their own world. We know exactly what it means to go from poverty to possibility, and we know what it takes to get there. Our kids inspire us every day, and here are some of their stories.
If all children in low-income countries completed upper secondary education by 2030, per capita income would increase by 75% by 2050.

Women with more education are more likely to learn healthy behaviors, understand their health needs, and advocate for the needs of themselves and their families.
