The task is enormous. It is important that we make a start, that too a meaningful one. We wish to achieve this with “ Rotary's “TEACH” Mission".Nepal's developmental challenges are high illitaracy rate Nepal's total population above five year is 23,926,541 nearly twenty four million and total literate population are 15,767,591 which is 65.9% this means 34.1% population are illiterate who could not read, write and understand sign languages.

Rotary Club Dhulikhel and Rotary International District 3292 initiating total literacy project based in TEACH model to enhance the quality of education in public school of Nepal. Rotarian of South Asia region are committed to help school support program adopting one club one school based on TEACH model.

These five components comes under the TEACH project. The objective of this project is to improve the educational standard in the government schools where the quality of educational standard is lowering every year.
