In June 2012, ROTA began supporting the second phase of the Move 4 New Horizons (M4NH II) project being implemented by Swiss Academy for Development (SAD) in Nepal. The ROTA co-funded project M4NH II is a follow-up to M4NH phase I, the award winning sport and play based concept. This follow-on phase of the project is an expansion beyond the first phase, now including two additional components. On the one hand, the project has been expanded to spread the playful teaching approach to include pre-school aged children and to reach out to children in their early childhood. Additionally, a vocational training and skills education component was added for youth of 11-18 years of age. These activities were added to ensure an educational continuum for disadvantaged Nepalese children and youth. SAD is implementing this project in collaboration with the local Dalit Welfare Organization (DWO).
