Our Mission

Our mission is to break the cycle of rote memorization based learning in the Nepal rural classroom. ECC aims to show teachers that using interactive and active methods, as well as appropriate interactive teaching materials, changes the entire environment of the classroom- for the better! Interactive education in proven better for child development so with ECC’s help we hope that teachers, schools, and parents will learn and adopt more effective teaching methods.

In addition, they will become community centers, providing support and services to the community as they shift their perception of the importance and meaning of school and education in the rural setting
