PEP is an outreach ministry of Sundar Dhoka Saathi Sewa. In Nepali, the word "Prerana" means "to inspire". The "Partnership" strategy within Nepal via PEP, involves engaged parents, teachers and schools, the child, and the PEP field officer who serves as a liaison of help, counsel, and advocacy.
PEP stays with each child through a complete school education and on to vocational opportunities. Education is their path out of poverty and into a life of fulfilled potential and fruitfulness. With a quality education (including English language), opportunities for employment and appropriate income are possible. PEP kids are qualified for good jobs, vocational schools, trade, college and university entrance.  

PEP "sees" each child as an individual with value and potential.
