Currently, in 2014 , 257 children of 21 public schools from 11 different VDCs in Kathmandu Valley are directly benefiting from the ESP. The programme is financially supported by Interpedia, Finland through the individual scholarships (the Finnish sponsors). The overall objective is to be committed to the cause of establishing the right to education for children living and working at difficult circumstances, and ensure them the opportunity to enjoy their childhood through education and awareness opportunities.
