  Registered UK Charity No. 1140503

An independent Charity supporting the Education of Children in Nepal, established in 2004.

CFENC was established because of the personal experiences of its founder, Lisa Whitehouse-Foskett, during her visits to Nepal and seeing first hand the desires of the children for learning.

We aim to provide not only improved school buildings, teaching materials and sports equipment but also, to be able to provide grants and scholarships to enable students to continue their education. 

Our first project was the building of 'Budhha Primary School', located at just under 10,000 feet in a remote mountain village called Bittekharka, East Nepal, where upto 60 pupils aged between 5 and 12 years, are now being educated.

Through sponsorship, CFENC educates nearly 50 children of all ages and backgrounds.  Currently our youngest is 6 years and our eldest 22yrs.

They attend schools and colleges in and around Kathmandu and the Kathmandu Valley, as well as a mountain school independant of our own.

We give them a future that they would otherwise, not have had, through your generosity. 

We also support 3 remote mountain schools, in Khotang, far East Nepal.

We are now seeing the fruition of our work and your generosity, as our eldest students begin to realise their own dreams.  For example, Sangita who's lifelong dream was to become a Nurse, has graduated and is now Nursing in Kathmandu - currently nursing COVID-19 patients; Karma has just begun his 3rd year as a Medical student and Tenzin is studying at Engineering College as he wishes to be an Architect.

We can only support our children with your support, for which we are extremely grateful.

Every pound raised will help enormously; for example £1 will buy 10 text books and £15 a school uniform.

Every single penny raised goes direclty to our charity, we take no personal adminsitrative costs.  We pay all of our own costs incurred personally.

Your money really does make a huge difference.

The film highlights the work we are doing in Nepal and is typical of the many schools & children that require help.

From ourselves and the children, Dhanibat. (Thank You).
