The Centre for Learning & Children's Rights Incorporated

Creating opportunity through education in Nepal

The Centre for Learning and Children's Rights Incorporated (CLCR) is an Australian, not for profit, organisation engaged in providing education, health care services and development aid for underprivileged children in Nepal.

We coordinate three major projects across Nepal. 

1-Heartland Academy school and tertiary college, Kathmandu: delivering, high quality, practical, violence free scholarship education to students, predominately young women from the Dalit caste from Nursery/ pre-school to tertiary college level.

All funds received will go towards supporting scholarship education and teaching and learning resources at the school.

2-Heartland Centre for Women (HCW): HCW is a brand-new tertiary college based in Kathmandu, established specifically for women across the country, delivering courses in Law, Health Science, Culinary Arts and Hospitality, in which on the same site we operate a health care clinic focusing on screening and the initial treatment for cervical cancer. As well as counselling and educational support in areas such as menstrual and maternal health care for all sectors of Nepal’s population. Funding will be used for increasing scholarship numbers/ provision for young women enrolling into the college section as well as medical resources for the clinic section of HCW.

3-Heartland Academy, Palpa: in April of 2023, CLCR opened its second Heartland school in the remote region of Jagbadi in Palpa. HAP offers co-education from Nursery up to primary grade 5. The development of this project and school was based on strong community partnership, consultation, and engagement, with HAP set up to be a source of community support, employment and educational opportunity for students and families within the region. Much like Heartland in Kathmandu, HAP’s goal is to provide long term educational opportunity, especially to young women and marginalized caste groups within the region. We are in the process of large-scale school building design and extensive teacher training of our local team to support a strong student centred, life skill-based education to empower the local population. We aim to expand into the lower and upper secondary school sections over the next few years as well as the college/ tertiary level (11-12). Funding will be used for expanding scholarship provision to children of the region as well as school resources and the building of expansive facilities for the school as it grows. 

CLCR is proud to be a partner for our Nepali school projects and women's health care initiatives. The Heartland Academy (HA) J537N partners with Global Development Group (ABN 57 102 400 993), as an Aus-AID approved NGO carrying out quality humanitarian projects with approved partners to relieve poverty and provide long term solutions. Global Development Group takes responsibility for the project according to Aus-AID rules, providing a governance role and assisting in the areas of planning, monitoring, reviewing, and auditing to ensure that project J537N "The Heartland Academy (HA)" is carried out to Australian requirements.

How will the funds be used?

Funds will be utilised across the three projects to support teaching and learning resource provision, scholarship support for young women attending Heartland education projects/ schools in Kathmandu and Palpa and key medical equipment, resources to support assessment and screening for cervical cancer as part of the health care services coordinated out of the HCW clinic in Kathmandu. We will also utilise funding to support classroom development as we see scholarships and enrolments increase within our Heartland, Palpa school.
