Who we are
We are the Brick Children’s School. We’re a community project supporting migrant families working in the brick fields of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Working with our partners in Nepal at Kopila Nepa, we provide education and healthcare for child labourers and literacy and skills training for adults.
Our mission is to give our pupils respite from work and a quality basic education in a safe, happy environment. We want to help each child achieve their potential and give them the opportunity just to be kids.

Our work in Nepal
We have supported education in the Kathmandu brickfields since 2001. We have many supporters fundraising for/donating to the BCS.
Last year the country was hit by a series of earthquakes.
Carole Green, from ITV, went to Nepal after the earthquake. You can watch Carole's film, which was broadcast on ITV Wales, on Facebook.
See our 'News' page for all forthcoming events.
Thanks to Emma Jenkins (EJ Catering) and all those who supported Brickjam2 in Cardiff on 27th January.
Thanks also to Shirin at Indian-Tiffin.com for the generous donation of colourful Tiffin boxes helping us to raise £10.5K
