This monograph is one of APCEIU's EIU Best Practices Series, which aims to encourage educators, scholars, and activists to implement and share local initiatives on EIU. The Series No.26 showcases a Multilingual Education Programme initiated by the Magar community in Nepal, that fosters EIU and multiculturalism. As there are over 200 local languages within Nepal, the MEP seeks to address the educational needs of non-Nepali speaking population. The program helps to enhance teacher capacity building, training manual development, and curriculum development, thereby allowing non-Nepali students to study in respective mother tongue.
