Send 50 girls to High School in Nepal

ADWAN Nepal has been functioning in Nepal for more than two decades and has significantly contributed to enhance girls' quality education and women's quality of life from different perspectives with special focus to ensuring and promoting the educational and economic rights.

ADWAN is mainly focusing in Education and Economic empowerment from its implementation phase. Education is a social process aimed at performing different vital functions in society. ADWAN believe, girls' education play a significant role in the development process from family to broaden area. When they become mother, they can contribute to improve the literacy, awareness and health of their children and other family members too. We also believe the educated girls can contribute to building the nation in the days to come. Learning of ADWAN; “girls’ education is reducing early age marriage and women’s pregnancy rates, child mortality rates and lowers maternal mortality rates. Realizing the significance of education, ADWAN has been investing from its earlierphase.

COVID-19 is having a negative impact on girls’ Education, health and well-being and many are at risk of not returning to school once they reopen. Available research shows that prevalence of violence against girls and women has increased during the pandemic which directly hit their health, safety and overall well-being. Every day, girls face barriers to education caused by poverty, cultural norms and practices, poor infrastructure, violence, and fragility. ADWAN is seeking for collaboration from civil society organizations, the private sector, and donors to advance multi-sectorial approaches to overcome these challenges.

As girls stay at home because of school closures, their household work burdens might increase, resulting in girls spending more time helping out at home instead of studying. This might encourage parents, particularly those putting a lower value on girls' education, to keep their daughters at home even after schools reopen. Therefore, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, we might see more girls than boys helping at home, lagging behind with studying, and dropping out of school and college because of poverty. But all the girls who receiving scholarship from GG is continue their study after reopen the schools.

From the installments received from GG, we are in-line to select 24 girls of the target 50 deserving girls to send high school in 2020. That is why we hope your generous support will continue and we kindly request your help for the 26 remaining girls by donating again at https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/send-50-girls-to-high-school-in-nepal/. Also, please share this link with your family, friends and relatives because your small support make a big impact in the lives of many poor girls in rural Nepal. We at ADWAN express profound gratitude for the consistent and generous support from kind-hearted people like you. Together, in partnership, we will continue to be an agent of change for Dalit as well as other marginalized, poor women and children in Nepal. Special thanks from the bottom of our heart go to GlobalGiving team for creating such a wonderful platform and supporting needy people all over the world.

Report on Relief Fund for COVID-19 Pandemic Victim

Report for Covid-19 Emergency Fund

What is the number of:

  • Families reached     :           244 families.
  • Total beneficiaries   :           976 (Average 4 people in a family)

Crisis invites violence in every family and abuses can happen when all the people locked in society and home. We ran short awareness session on "against domestic violence and abuses" during the crisis in relief distribution time. With that session we reached 244 women and men from every households.

We deeply focused to very poor and daily wage working people who were in food crisis than sanitary items because situation has been worsening with the uncertain extension of lock down. At its start, the daily wage earners in informal sectors were seen as the most vulnerable groups because they used to fulfill hand to mouth problem by daily wage earnings. Earlier only the most vulnerable groups faced economic crisis vastly but later the situation of better position people were also going through the critical condition. They were in the situation of starvation. So that, ADWAN decided to distribute food items. The following table contains necessary information about emergency relief activities at Gorkha and Chitwan districts.

Challenges:

Authorization from local government: To receive distribution permission was critical challenge we faced in starting phase because Nepal government has implemented one door system for relief distribution. According to the government policy, the most vulnerable who do not have any source of income of their own, nor have any option for income generation would get relief through the local government or in collaboration with the ward. At the end, ADWAN distributed some relief package to them who were in immediate needs collaboration with ward in place of rural municipality, municipality and Metropolitan city.

High demand of neighboring community people: We mostly reached to those community where ADWAN affiliated women lives. In time of food crisis the neighbor community people came to us and asked for food item. We couldn't address their demand in this time because of budget limitation and return them we will visit your village in next phase of distribution if we receive sufficient donation from international donor agencies. And we provided package to some people who were in most need and recommended by ward chairman.

All the people of the earth are suffering by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the bad situation, Nepal has under go in lockdown from 24th March and still ongoing in educational institutions, cinema halls, super markets. To prevent people from contracting this virus, Nepal government announced to people for self-care. Due to the COVID-19, all the schools and colleges were unable to take exams so that, most of the educational institutions announced results on the basis of student's internal performance. But the students who are in final year of 12 must give their final exam after lockdown or when the time will be safer for students and teachers. COVID-19 is directly effecting finance, poverty, health, and the education system. All the schools and colleges are closed, but some private schools are trying to take online classes after this, government schools also trying to run online classes but lack of the fundamental equipment of poor family the online classes in not working properly. The scholars who are in their final year, their exams are postponed but they are learning and revising their subjects via virtual classes but all don't have excess of good internet service and smart mobile so they are in trouble to complete courses. They are contacting teachers through cellphone learning. According to the girls, it is so difficult to all the students to focus in study and complete course while they are feeling stressed about final exam date and about their future. They are just waiting for exam date and normal situation from COVID-19.
