Our mission at AFPN is to educate Nepalese middle and high school students about the history of the Second World War and the Holocaust, through the inspiring story of Anne Frank.
History of Anne Frank Project Nepal
AFPN started in June of 2011. By the end of the summer, the project had reached out to more than 2,300 students enrolled in six schools throughout three different cities in Nepal.
After the positive response AFPN received from both the students and the teachers, AFPN decided to expand the project in the summer of 2012 by continuing the educational visits, reaching out to a total of over 5,000 students. AFPN built a peace library in a school for 250 war-affected students as a permanent resource where students could access historically accurate information. Additionally, AFPN has advocated for a wide-spread policy change to national curriculums to incorporate a more detailed and accurate history of World War II and the Holocaust.
