About CANWES

img_4481CanWES’ current projects include our initial goal of creating opportunities in Nepal. We are currently the sole contributor to the operation and assistance to education in the remote village of Sanitar, Nepal. Our operational costs are $30,000 per year and include paying salaries for 18 staff, assisting 250 students with regard to supplies, tuition, and uniforms, and maintenance of the two buildings that are currently being used. In the short existence of the Canadian World Education Society, we have raised almost $300,000 and created significant awareness about the impoverished nation of Nepal. We are also proud that less than 8% of the funds raised have gone to administrative costs – a rare feat in the operation of non-profit organizations these days. CanWES is currently working hard to raise additional funds to support the growing demand for quality education.  It has been the goal of CanWES to assist Sanitar in their desire to achieve progressive change. The ability of the students to receive quality education for years to come will make a significant difference in the opportunities that will be presented to the youth of the community. CanWES is proud of our accomplishments to date, and look forward to observing the progress of this remote village over the next decade.
