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. EWN provide financial support to educate a child upto grade 10, covering the tuition, a school uniform and stationery. 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.
Education Support to Disadvantaged Nepali Children Project is deactivated from GlobalGiving as for this year EWN got fund and will continue this project to support marginalised children . EWN has two other Nepali young girls and women empowerment projects besides this Education Support project on GlobalGiving.

She used to take care of her brother, collected water, and fetched water at home in the high mountain. Her father is a yak herder and is the only breadwinner for the family of four. Due to poverty Latun was sent to the district headquarter to work for a family. She comes from one of the most remote district of Nepal-Dolpa, West Nepal. She was eleven years old when she was admitted at our Children Home through her mother who knew about our Children Home Program. She was fortunate to get EWN Children Home. In 2018 she passed the SEE (Grade 10) exam with great grade. Now she is studying in grade 11 at good school in Kathmandu.
"Everyone has their own life. Life is filled with happiness, sadness, tears, smiles, laughter and emotions and everyone has their own life story. So, I have my own story. In my family there are four members in my family. I am the eldest child and have a younger brother who stays with my parents. My father name is Danta Bohora and mother’s name is Rupa Bohara. My parents have a very difficult life living in a Humla, remote district of Nepal. My father’s one eye is visually impaired and my mother is deaf. They are therefore not able to work, which makes our living and financial condition precarious. One man of a local organization recommended me to Empowering Women of Nepal. I was 4 years old when I joined Empowering Women of Nepal where I got another family. Now I am studying in grade 8 at National Inventive Secondary Boarding School, Pokhara. I am studying here from kindergarten with the support from Empowering Women of Nepal. If I did not have joined Empowering Women of Nepal, I would not have got an opportunity of education. I struggled very hard not only for me but for my parents. I always want to continue my higher education. I thank God, my parents and Empowering Women of Nepal for making my life better and encouraging me to work hard."
