The team leader of Asian Hiking Team said that scholarship programs encourage the Dalit Student not leave study. According few years school data, Dalit students are stopping to leave school. This is small help but I think that make s to study hard and not leave school.
Stop who leave school before finish school level and Dalit student get highest mark, said Leader Suman. AHT’s scholarship programs is keep continues others year because its help competition of student to get high mark to received scholarship.
Why Asian Hiking Team choice Dalit student? According to Hinduism Dalit means lower cast people who have no land, miner work people, less education. But now in Nepal no more cast system but still its effect in remote area of Nepal. Scholarship programs are running from the sole percent of company profit so it not enough to help many of them.
Since open company, is also helping remote areas in the development of Education, Health and Environment awareness. Some percentages of the profits from Asian Hiking Team go into the welfare fund for this purpose. Asian Hiking Team is a local trekking agency with up to date travel organization services.
