Challenge

Musahars are the most politically marginalised, economically exploited and socially outcast people in Nepal. They are excluded from basic public services such as healthcare, education and even transport. The situation is even more dire for Musahar girls. Just 3.8% are literate and 100% are out of school by age 10. Many are forced into early marriage and have multiple children by the time they are 15 years old. They are trapped in a life of extreme poverty and social exclusion.

Solution

To empower Musahar girls with basic literacy and numeracy skills and employability training. Girls will participate in classes providing them with the skills and knowledge to establish and run a small business. Alongside this, girls will attend weekly life skills support circles to improve their self-confidence and decision-making. Training sessions are also designed to strengthen girls' awareness of their basic rights like education, health employment, social services.

Long-Term Impact

Your donation will transform the life-prospects of excluded Musahar girls, giving them crucial skills, self-confidence and increasing their participation in social and political decision-making. Not only will the future of these 3,650 Musahar girls be changed with free access to their basic rights like education, employment and social services, but the lives of their children and their communities will be impacted too.
