What is ECC?

Education Concern Center is a research based non-profit that aims to change the way teachers, students, and communities view the teaching and learning process.

Our non-profit is the result of two people very passionate about providing quality education to rural Nepal. ECC works in the classroom, with the school as a whole, and in the larger community. Rural Nepali classrooms all around the country are stuck in a cycle of out-dated and ineffective teaching methods based on rote memorization and recitation. ECC aims to break this cycle by showing the efficacy and importance of interactive and active teaching and learning. As a research-based non-profit, ECC is striving to create a low-cost and replicable model that can be used in primary schools across rural Nepal.

To achieve their research goals, ECC is starting with a small pilot project. This pilot project is the Hollistic School Project. The project area is Gamaudi VDC in the Dullu Municipality in Dailekh district. ECC started its research pilot project officially in February 2018 and will track results closely for 3 years.

In addition to the HSP, ECC has plans for expanding it’s basic project principles to many other schools in the Dullu area beyond just the 5 target schools for the pilot project
