Legacy Scholarship Programme 

We are honoured to support students from rural Panchkal in their university studies in Nepal. Our programme began in 2017 with three scholars, and we are now proud to have sponsored 15 scholars, two of whom have now completed their Bachelor's degrees. Their programmes of study include human rights law; teaching; information technology; accounting; medicine and hospitality. Our most recent graduate has decided to pursue an MBA and we are happy to be able to provide a scholarship for her future studies. Our financial support covers the costs of tuition, school stationery, accommodation and exams. The average costs of a Bachelor's degree for one scholar is £1,400. Donations of any denomination are greatly appreciated, and if you are interested in supporting our project, please contact Lauren Kelley


Year 7


Although we are unable to plan a trip to Nepal at this time, we continue to financially support the building of classrooms and a toilet block at Shree Bhuwaneshwari, a government school in Panchkal, Kathmandu Valley, where we have worked since 2018. Additionally, we continue to support our Legacy Scholars, and have set the target to fund scholarships for an additional six students, bringing our total to 21 scholars. Furthermore, we foster links between ACS Egham and Panchkal through our CAS work. 

Year 6 


Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to travel to Nepal in 2020. However, we are happy to report that all of our Nepali guides at NARBA Treks, the staff and students and Shree Bhuwaneshwari School and our Legacy Programme Scholars are safe and well and will return to school and work once things are up and running again. 


With education comes the responsibility and ability to make things better.

Through practical and committed outreach work our extended school community rallies to help those caught by tragedy or living in hardship. 

Project Nepal aims to support Nepalese school communities while simultaneously providing students with social action and emotional development opportunities - and the chance to make a sustainable difference. 

We come together with heart and immediacy to be that unexpected agent of change.
