Project Report | Aug 2, 2016
Also creating livelihood opportunities in Nepal

By Krit Sharma | Project Leader

We have a provision to provide school uniforms to the girls in the scheme. Currently, we support 101 girls most in need of schooling from the poorest families in rural villages of Nepal. The girls receive a shirt and skirt or trouser every year in July as part of the summer uniform.

We contracted with four small family-run tailors in the village to sew the uniform, and this created a job for a whole month for them. Sometimes, the tailors do not have any job for months, and they struggle to support their families. So a month packed of jobs is fantastic.

Similarly, we have also created fourteen part-time and one full-time job in the villages. The unemployment rate in rural villages of Nepal is as high as 80% and finding a job even for an educated person is extremely challenging. So, creating fifteen jobs in the communities is a significant achievement.

Last year, we spent £6000 pounds (900,000 Nepalese rupees) in the village's economy through our two main projects, the Girls' Education Project and the Mosquito Net Project. 900K rupees is lots of money in Nepal, particularly in rural villages. So when you sponsor a girl, it doesn't just keep a girl in school. It also supports the local economy and create job opportunities.

Please sponsor a girl today. It costs only £4/$6 a month.
