“I believe that what we're creating is the path to peace, equality, and prosperity in our world. I know with all of my heart that education is the way." -Maggie Doyne
When our students graduate from Kopila Valley School, they are equipped with the best education available in the region and the critical thinking skills they need to navigate their futures. They graduate with the confidence and leadership skills they need to become the future leaders and changemakers within the community. Our Futures Program prepares our students for life beyond the walls of Kopila Valley.
WITHIN OUR HOME
As parents, we make sure that all of our Kopila Buds are ready to leave our home prepared with the life skills necessary to be healthy, thriving, compassionate young adults. Our transitional housing program prepares our young adults for life outside the home. We give our young adults classes and practical lessons in personal finance, sexual health, time management, and conflict resolution (to name a few). Working together with them in regular individual and group counseling sessions, we assess when a student is ready to transition out of our Children's Home. While remaining a part of our family and returning home for birthdays and holidays, the students live in their own flats in the valley, preparing all their own meals and managing their own finances.
FUTURES AT SCHOOL
Our students are usually the first in their home to complete primary education, so it’s vital that school be a place where their professional and personal development needs can be met. After 10 class, our students decide to continue on a vocational or academic track. Our career counseling department mandates a two year professional and personal development workshop series, with students working on writing assignments and career research projects and coming to monthly sessions on topics, such as resume writing and interpersonal communication. We provide intensive individual and group counseling to our students during 11 and 12th grade to help them figure out their next steps.
We provide no interest loans to some of our students to help them keep dreaming big. These students can choose to continue their studies with vocational training or undergraduate studies. Our students will become the future farmers, doctors, engineers, teachers, business owners, and architects that will uplift their communities and bring positive development to Nepal.
