We provide educational scholarship for underprivileged girls to attend school until grade 10. Depending on the need of the children, scholarship includes their tuition fee, accommodation, stationery, medical care and clothing.
Many Nepali girls are deprived her education because of poverty, marginalization, discrimination, socially excluded families to continue and support children's schooling where parent's income is even not sufficient to fulfill the basic needs such as food and clothing. Also in Nepal, many parents prefer not to invest in a girl's education because girl will be married within a few years leaving house after marriage.
The scholarship fund has been established so that deserving children from low income families can get education despite their financial difficulties. To come in line with government changes has been decided that EWN closed its commitment to the children's home. Some of the girls have returned to various family members and continue to be supported by EWN for their education. A number of girls whose homes are far away in remote village gone into hostels and again continue to be supported by EWN.
Education empowers girls to fulfill their dreams. More than 10 children of our children home are now pursuing higher education and some are doing job. Education helps them in economically independent and supporting their families. They can fight for their rights and discrimination. Currently we are supporting 10 children with full scholarship
