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.
