The little school that's teaching a whole village.
 
In the village of Mankhu, there is a small primary school. It's not very good and too many children drop out of school early. At Her Farm (see project #9523) we're working to keep kids in school by offering a before and after school program that helps with homework and teaches them English as well. We also started day-care and early childhood education so that women no longer have to take their children with them in the fields while they work. We educate, we feed the children good meals. project reportread updates from the field
Stop Child Brides in Nepal
 
The biggest barrier to keeping girls in school is the cost of a uniform, shoes and supplies.Girls often drop out of school because they lack these simple and cheap things. Once out of school there is tremendous societal pressure to marry. 34% of marriages in Nepal involve girls under the age of 16. 20% of the nearly 10,000 girls trafficked out of Nepal are under 16. Staying in school lowers HIV and infant and maternal mortality Staying in school results in fewer children being born project reportread updates from the field

Change Nepal's staggering Maternal Mortality Rates
 
On average, one woman dies from the complications related to childbirth every four hours. (source UNICEF) Rural Nepal faces an acute shortage of maternity services. The result is one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world. It's a loss of life that is preventable. Lack of trained staff and facilities for delivery are two of the leading causes of the high maternal mortality rates. That's fixable, with very little money. project reportread updates from the field
Build a house for the homeless Chepang for $170
 
The Chepang people are perhaps the poorest, least educated and most marginalized people in Nepal. Until very recently they were denied citizenship and most still are not citizens. They live as part-time farmers and part-time hunter gatherers. Food insecurity is constant. Most are hungry, many don't even have the most basic shelter to live in. Over 80 percent are under the poverty line, which means they survive on less than US$1 per day. This project focuses on just getting a roof over their head project reportread updates from the field
