Challenge

A huge political change has taken place in Nepal. The decade-long armed conflict has ended. During the conflict more than 17000 people were killed and many disappeared (either kidnapped or displaced from their communities). Thousands of children lost their parents. The conflict has severely altered Nepal's cultural and educational traditions. Especially education of girls, which already was receiving very less attention in this developing country, is now completely ignored in poor communities.

Solution

NCBL has provided educational support to more than 200 girls. Some of these sponsored girls have already graduated from schools and are now pursuing further studies or hold dignified jobs. NCBL sponsors increasing number of girls every year, which means every year more and more girls receive quality education, get good jobs and/or get admitted to good colleges. These girls are able to initiate societal changes and inspire various development/peace processes.

Long-Term Impact

The project promotes good educational/professional opportunities for 25 conflict affected girls. The project encourages economic and intellectual development of these girls. The project will allow these girls to be able to inspire societal changes around them in the future.
