The Charity: Sunsar Maya builds pathways out of poverty by improving the livelihoods of vulnerable children and women through holistic, community-based services. Sunsar Maya operates two multi-function community centers that include an after-school tutoring and enrichment program for orphaned and and disadvantaged children to provide academic, socio-emotional, and medical care; and women’s literacy classes that build reading, math, and life skills. These services make up a multi-pronged and sustainable approach to addressing both the short- and long-term needs of a population that suffers from severe social and economic barriers. In addition, our teacher training program provides much-needed resources for educators in the rural villages of Nepal. Our goal is to create a community that breaks the cycle of poverty by investing in and supporting the well-being and success of its most vulnerable members.
