Summary

Girls' education has been ignored in Nepalese communities for various reasons such as, cultural traditions, an unsuitable schooling environment & financial problems. It is particularly rare for girls that come from poor & Dalit families in rural villages of Nepal, to receive an education. Consequently, this project will support 90 girls most in need of schooling. Educating girls has many advantages such as, improved gender equality, health, education, better family planning and economic growth.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Girl's education is still ignored in Nepal, particularly in remote villages amongst poor & Dalits families. The major reasons for this are cultural beliefs, an education for girls is supposed unnecessary, the school environment, a lack of awareness, affordability, plus a lack of motivation in parents to promote girl's education. Some effort is being made by the government to address this issue but still 60% of girls are not in school and most of them drop out of school by age of twelve.

How will this project solve this problem?

We believe that there is enough evidence to suggest- investing in girls' education will bring the highest return to individuals, families, communities & nations. Therefore, we will support 90 girls most in need of schooling. We will raise awareness concerning the importance of girls' education through their parents. We will monitor the girls in the scheme on a regular basis to avoid dropping out from schooling. We will also work closely with schools & teachers to improve the school environment.

Potential Long Term Impact

Ninety of the neediest girls in rural villages of Nepal will finish their schooling. This will result in ninety educated mothers for tomorrow. There is enough evidence to suggest that an educated mother will ensure that her children will be educated regardless of gender, will raise healthier babies & contribute to better family planning. Also six poor families in the villages will be trained to sew & make uniforms for the girls in the scheme, which in turn will improve livelihood opportunities.
