KINOE (Kids in need of Education)

KINOE , Kids in need of education, is a UK registered charity, founded in 1996 to raise funds for educational projects in the Indian subcontinent. We raise money for schools in India and Nepal, helping to educate around 3,500 children who would otherwise receive little or no education. It's aim is to help less priviledged children escape the poverty cycle and build a better life through the benefits of a good education.
In India, KINOE has funded up to half of the Akanksha projects which began 13 years ago and currently helps over 3,500 children. Around two and a half million children live in the slums and on the streets of Mumbai. The aim of Akanksha is to change these children's lives through education. The schools also provide a safe haven for the children, somewhere where they will be treated well and where they can have a good time.

In Nepal, KINOE funds a school in Lo Manthang, the capital of the remote Buddhist kingdom of Mustang. The Lo Kunphen school has 30 children and is run by traditional Tibetan medical practitioners (Amchis) and focuses on teaching the children a basic curriculum as well as traditional Tibetan medicine. The school fulfils a triple objective: to provide an education to children from poor families; to provide a much needed medical service to the local population once the students have qualified; to make a cultural impact by keeping local traditions alive.

KINOE also sponsors some children at a boarding school in Kathmandu.
