We are a group of professionals who believe that education can empower individuals and communities to play an active role in addressing the causes of poverty and injustice around the world.

Education is not about politics. Education is about hope in the future. Civil Initiative (CI) has no political agenda. Civil Initiative welcomes Nepalese from all walks of life, from all ideological backgrounds, from all economic strata to join us. We would like to claim that it is our original idea to reach across boundaries to help Nepal’s most needy but it is not. Nepalese helping each other is as old a tradition as the country itself. It is in our culture, our language and it is a trait all Nepalese are born with.
