BRANNGO Cttee Mbr John Matthews

 John Matthews, the BRANNGO Education Working Group Lead, founded Children of the Mountain after visiting Gorkha in 2009. The charity aims to support the poorest children in rural and urban Nepal by providing them with opportunity through access to education and personal development.

The BRANNGO Education Working Group aims to foster co-operation between NGOs working to achieve SDG4 (‘Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’) in Nepal, with the ambition of providing a comprehensive, measurable solution for government schools.

Members of the Group share information on the Education sector in Nepal (Government policy, global education NGO programs, implementation partners, local authority support); and intend to develop best practices for BRANNGO members (risk, governance, engagement, reporting) and BRANNGO member and partner schools (management, curriculum, resources, training, measurement), as well as translate their recommendations into actions.
