Progress report - May 2014

Consequences of dowry in Nepal
Consequences of dowry in Nepal

Despite the support we provide, school attendance of girls in the scheme has not been satisfactory. But according to the last quarterly report, 7 out of 10 girls are now attending school regularly. Considering the previous school attendance records, only 3 out of 10 girls were attending school regularly so this is a fantastic result. During the period, Sunita (the project assistant) made numerous visits to families whose girls are in the scheme. This indicates that a regular family visit works and hiring Sunita as project assistant was a good decision. Now, we have set up a target to bring all the girls into regular schooling.

Another great news is number of girls in the scheme has increased to seventy five from twenty five. Our target is to bring ninety girls into schooling through the GlobalGiving girl’s education scheme. The new girls introduced in the scheme are from very poor and Dalit families and all of them do not require a same level of support. That means with a similar or less resources, we can support more girls. If this year’s fundraising went well then we will achieve our target by the end of the year or by early 2015.

Increased number of girls in the scheme also means a higher financial commitment and without this the girls cannot continue their schooling. So this year, we have started a fundraising campaign- ‘one coffee a week’. This is to encourage supporters to drink one cup of coffee less a week and donate that money to support the project. One cup of coffee in London costs £1.80. So, even if only twenty five supporters have taken the challenge then the fundraising will be sufficient to support the ninety girls in the scheme and pay salary of Sunita. Sunita makes sure all the girls go to school regularly and report to NVF.

The message is ‘your one cup of coffee a week equals to education for the ninety girls’

Recently a seven-month pregnant Nepalese woman was set on fire by her husband over the undelivered dowry in western Nepal. We believe an education can change this violence and creates a better world.
