American-Nepali Students' and Women's Educational Relief was founded in 2001 after obtaining excellent results with our own little "street girl", Uma, whom we placed in a private school in Kathmandu. After 3 years, she had become fluent in English, had made up for being placed back two years initially, and was obtaining top marks. From wanting to simply learn to read and count, she began to feel she wanted to be a doctor. Uma graduated with honors in nursing and is working in a hospital in Katmandu. Eleven years after founding and many refinements, we have over 600 children in 120 schools and colleges all over Nepal. We are 117 for 117 in sending our high school students to college. Half of the college graduates have careers in Nepal, the other half are still pursuing their studies at the Universities. Read More

ANSWER receives nothing but good karma for organizing this trip, so we assume no liability. You can join or leave the group and travel on your own at any point. Each year we have 5-10 people traveling with us. We now have at least 9 considering (but often half opt out in the end, so there is still room). Allow a full 2 weeks in-country. Total Cost (including RT to Nepal) will usually run $2500-$3000 per person, depending on what you want to do. An extra week is possible for not much more if you have the time. More
