Cooperative Youth Organization Nepal

Youth-led non-profit organization
supporting children's education in Nepal

COYON was founded in 2002 in the small town of Benighat at Dhading district of Nepal. This non-profit social organization was created with the goal of providing a more practical and effective approach to education that meets the needs of the local community while also promoting cultural diversity and advancement for the nation as a whole. Cooperative Youth Organization Nepal (COYON), aims to sustain and advance this mission in a forward-thinking manner.

We, a group of determined young people with a passion for service and a desire of making difference in the lives of underprivileged, began a small campaign and form this organization. Despite facing challenges, we remained committed and continued to contribute our time and efforts in social service and established this organization, which aims to make a positive impact on the community.

Our team is composed of dynamic young people who are committed to introducing community-based school support, awareness and education programs for children. We believe that these programs are crucial for building a self-reliant and confident society. Regardless of minimal resources, we have accomplished a lot in the past 20 years and are proud to continue our work.
