Challenge

In the rural Himalayan community in Nepal, where The Small World is working gender gap is very high and girls are often not given equal rights to education compared to a son. Since girls are not in school they soon become child bride and she remains vulnerable to violence, abuse, insecurity, trafficking, and spends rest of her life being dependent on her husband. The cycle goes on if there is no intervention of education somewhere in this cycle by educating girls today for next generation.

Solution

The Small World have created a special program of Girls education, keeping in school providing essential support in the remote villages of lower Solukhumbhu who otherwise at high risk of trafficking, child bride & abuse. We believe that Education has the power to change lives and break the cycles of Poverty . An educated mother is more likely to have educated children, both boys & girls, which help ensures that universal education & gender equality will continue on through the generation.

Long-Term Impact

In developing country like Nepal, if we educate a girl, she'll will change herself, educate her family, gain self-sufficiency & create positive impact in her community. Educating girls is most wise investment. If she educated she will do the rest..
