Girls Education in Nepal

As the year 2017 is coming to end, we would like to thank all of our supporters for believing in our work and making it possible annually for above 2000 girls and children to stay in school. With huge thanks we still would like to share that right from childhood, life is hard in villages for Nepali women and girls. Mortality rates are higher, literacy rates are lower, and work longer and harder, for less reward.

 

Only 1 in 5 women can properly read and write in Nepal. If a family can only afford to send some of their children to school, girls are usually the last choice. If they do go, they also have more work at home, which has an effect on their studies.

The economic contribution of women was substantial, but largely unnoticed because their traditional role was taken for granted. When employed, their wages normally were 25 percent less than those paid to men. In most rural areas, their employment outside the household generally was limited to planting, weeding, and harvesting. But with all of your generous support The Small World is working to change these statistics. Now in the remote Himalayan district of Solukhumbu, 40 girls are receiving the higher education every year that will make their dreams come true and completely change their lives for the better. Not so long ago, they couldn’t have imagined this as possible. The direct results of the education will help us achieve following.

  • Reductions in Human Trafficking
  • Later Marriages with Smaller Families
  • Improved Health Individually and for Families
  • Economic & Social Empowerment
  • Alleviation of Poverty
  • GDP Increase
  • Knowledge of Justice and rights/Political representation
  • Confidence & Ability to choose one’s profession

 Girls’ education is one of the best investments in the developing country like Nepal. When girls are educated, community becomes safer, healthier, and more prosperous. We valued you as a partner in our vital work, sharing our work and taking action to get girls into classroom.

 We hope that you will make a donation today to educate a girls to change world beginning with her.

PREPARING FOR THE LIFE THEY ALWAYS DREAMED ABOUT 
BUT NEVER THOUGHT WAS POSSIBLE

In the remote Everest region of Nepal, seven out of ten girls drop out of school after grade 10. Other than for reasons of poverty, the prevailing cultural view in Nepal favors sending boys to school and keeping the girls at home to take care of household chores. As a result, the literacy rate of women is just 23%.

To end the gender gap in education and realize our vision of equal access and opportunity for boys and girls in remote villages of Solukhumbhu, we built the first of its kind Girls' Dorm for higher education. This provides guardianship for girls to have a safe place as well as tuition fees, uniforms, and books. Several Women's Leadership Programs help them to push their personal limits with a goal of future role model leadership for their community.

Since 2010 this place has been beautiful home for 150 girls. This month our 3rd batch of girls graduated and we welcome 40 new girls. Every girl who joined us belongs to remote village in Himalaya, where life is difficult in many ways. Most villages that our girls come from are without electricity, telecommunication, and running water and health facilities. They have to walk several days to arrive at the facility where college education is provided.

We select girls from different villages based on a ranking test because we have only 40 seats but over 200 applicants. Once they are qualified they will be provided free accommodation, college education sponsorship with all the supplies. Besides college education girls are also provided basic computer training, public speaking training and awareness about human trafficking and how to be safe and save our sisters from such situation. 

Because of their enthusiasm and desire to make their dreams a reality, it is easy to envision these girls becoming future leading women of their community. Role models are important, so once a month we arrange meetings with inspiring female leaders, such as female teachers, nurses, business women, police officers, social workers, etc.

Twenty-seven percent (27%) of all the graduates are placed in different jobs like teaching, health care, accountancy, journalism, police force. The Small World has always believed that gratitude should be at the center of all we do. So huge thanks to you for being an instrumental part of our girls' education project's success. We will share stories about the journey of our graduates how they feel now once they achieved their dream which they never thought they will.

Girls Education Program.
We are thrilled  to share our actions on Girls Education here at ground. We have reached to over 160 girls in remote himalayan region through our girls education program so that they can continue to be in school. The sad reality of these remote himalayan region of Nepal is that there are limited or no access to higher education, college and universities. But only primary level education is not enough for anyone to qualify for a job. So we are providing these deserving girls a safe and free accommodation along with scholarship for their college education at district headquarters of Solukhumbhu where the facilities of higher education and university is available.

All the girls belongs to underprivileged families and have no other means to continue their study without our support. This program is one of its kind in the entire region.  Beside complex geography reasons like poor economic conditions and various tradition and culture are barriers for the girls are not to allow to continue their education after basic schooling. 7 out of 10 girls drops out permanently after grade 10 education and then she joins her mother to work in farm, look after cattle and soon be married at age 18 or so. With the initiation of this project and intervention of free education with free and safe accommodation we strive to provide them with opportunities and hope for their future.

Binita age 19 says “ in my community girls are always prepared for getting married and looking after her husband and inlaws, and i was in similar circumstances until The Small World supported for my college education. For me life is now beautiful and i hope i can be a first female teacher in my community and will marry only when i am ready. Thank you for the support.”

The stories continue to grow and as we educate these young generation of girls today we strongly believe that they will take on the responsibility to make sure their children are educated.

Thank you for joining your hands with us in the humanitarian journey. We are forever grateful for your undying support. without your support none of these will be possible today.

Dear All Donros, Namaste ! 

Himalayan Hope Home,Located in Kathmandu, this large home, built by The Small World in 2012, completely supports thirty (30) at risk girls ranging from three to sixteen years of age with safety and security; an education that includes learning English to prepare them for college; all meals, clothing, and medical care; and, just as importantly, a very kind, supportive, and loving family oriented environment.  Each girl is taught self-sufficiency from an early age in taking care of day to day needs, such as washing her own clothes and keeping her room and the home neat and clean. In such ways, each girl learns self-reliance and self-respect.  Their lives are totally changed from the poverty and vulnerability that would have meant a future of forced labor, abuse, illiteracy, forced early marriage with complete dependence on a husband with responsibility for his family as well as theirs, or being trafficked into international sex slavery, for which there are 20,000 to 30,000 girls victimized every year in Nepal.

 Thank you very much for your investment in Girls Education in Nepal. Educating girls in developing country like Nepal is the most powerful and effective way to address majority of problem that girls are facing like poverty, inequality, abuse, neglect, exploitation & trafficking. With your help we can give many more girls the opportunity to change their lives and those of their families. 

 

Once again, thank you very much and Namaste !
