Challenges We Face

“For the community and by the community”

The first of the 3 schools, Maya Universe Academy, was founded in 2011 in Ratamata, a small village in Nepal between Katmandu and Pokhara. The school is helmed by Manjil Rana and was created with the goal of establishing free private schools that improves access to affordable and quality education for children living in traditionally underserved rural communities. Money shouldn’t be a barrier to access quality education which should be a fundamental right for all.

Maya Universe Academy accepts and treats all students equally regardless of their race, ethnicity, nationality, class, caste, religion, beliefs and gender. Along with our sustainable model of “For the community, and by the community” our school generates funds through volunteers from Europe and the Americas. If the students are the soul of Maya and the school is its body, in many ways, the volunteers are like oxygen, constantly being refreshed and an essential part for us to create a self sustainable model.
