This project focuses innovatively on decreasing inequality in accessing higher education in Nepal. The main goal of EATHEN is to enhance inclusive management practices and access for people with a disability and from marginalized groups and regions in Nepal to higher education. The goal will be reach by supporting the universities in their development towards inclusive management and practices. Reaching the main goal enhances implementation of the policies and strategies of Ministry of Education (MoE) in Nepal. Innovative approach turns up via establishing support centres and services for students from marginalized groups, and also via providing training programme for personnel of support centres and courses for teachers and administrative personnel. All the planning and implementation goes hand by hand with the strategies and policies of MoE.
