"if you educate a girl, you educate the world!"
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.
