CaN Education Foundation

NGOs and Charities

CaN Education Foundation is a not for profit organisation incorporated with BC Registry in 2011. We help children in grades K – 12. Public or community schools in Nepal lack resources and the pupils attending these schools often come from marginalised and/or underprivileged families. The Foundation is helping schools and students, to improve the teaching and learning environment. Students who are on the verge of dropping out of school are supported by this Foundation, which provides them with school uniforms, bags, shoes, and stationery. This support takes some of the burden off their parents’ shoulders.

Himalayan Resources

This Resources is a curated list of businesses, NGOs, religious sites, and community organizations related to the Himalayan community in the Lower Mainland.

The UBC Himalaya program is working to build an interdisciplinary hub for sharing knowledge about the Himalayan region, drawing upon faculty expertise, student engagement, and community partnerships. We see our website as a resource for anyone interested in the Himalayas to network, connect, and learn by engaging with the Himalayan community in Metro Vancouver.
