Background

Underprivileged Children’s Educational Programs (UCEP) was first established in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 1972 by Late Mr. Lindsay Alan Cheyne, a New Zealander, to enhance the living condition of street and working children by providing them opportunities to attend school and acquire job-oriented vocational skills.

UCEP extended its programs to Nepal in 1978 after conducting a case study of working children in the Kathmandu Valley. Five Non Formal Education (NFE) schools were started in 1980 followed by establishment of Sano Thimi Technical School (STTS) in 1983 with financial and technical assistance implemented by MS-Nepal for Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA).

Since then, Yamaji Fumiko Cultural Foundation (Japan), American Asian Free Labor Institute (AAFLI), Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), and Training for Employment (TfE) Project have extended support to continue the Technical Education and Vocational Training (TEVT) programs.
