COMMITTED believes education gives individuals the freedom to dream the impossible and chart their own destinies. However, often in rural Nepal, education of children is either neglected or not a priority due mainly to poverty. In the communities COMMITTED serves, the financial burden placed on the household is so much that children either do not go to school at all or drop out long before graduation. To address that, and as a part of Sikchya Mero Adhikar (Education-My Right) Campaign, COMMITTED establishes Social Business for Education (SBE) projects.

Social Business for Education is an income-generating project, profits from which will be used mainly to run and support free, mandatory, and quality education at community schools. The rest of the profits will be spent on village development projects through a local government-led community planning process. These income generating self-sustainable businesses are appropriate for the local economy and run as a community managed cooperative. As such, both the community and the school will participate directly in the planning, implementing and running of the business. Each year a certain amount of generated funds from the SBE is allotted towards improvements outlined in the School Improvement Plan (SIP).
