Thank you, Educating Girls to educate the world

Greetings from Solukhumbu with view of Mt. EVEREST
Greetings from Solukhumbu with view of Mt. EVEREST
Dear All friends and supporters , Namaste ! 

I hope this emails finds you well.   I am very happy to share you about the current situation from from field in Solukhumbu about how our girls are doing during this COVID-19 pandemic as a human, economic and social crisis affecting everyone, and Nepal, like the rest of the world, has not been spared. 

With the rapid rise of coronavirus infections, Nepali governments have adopted measures to curb the spread, by closing markets, businesses and educational institutions for more than 6 months. The potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on girls’ education are numerous and diverse. In a country like Nepal even though the government tried to implement distance learning more than 80% families cannot afford to pay for internet, laptop or smart phones so many children are missing out on education this year.

Samjhana, grade 9 when this pandemic started and schools closed, she thought it will be just for a few days and we will be back to school but now it’s been almost 8 months and schools are still closed. It’s tough for her to get in online classes because since Kathmandu is hotspot for COVID, now hope girls are shifted to Solukhumbhu in Everest region and our elder sisters are teaching younger sisters there and girls are very happy learning from sisters with good motivation and everyone trying to teach each other and staying together as a lovely sisterhood.

Here, in the Everest region, besides teaching and learning, our girls are also actively participating in helping at our construction project site learning painting, hiking great Himalaya, cooking, and dancing. They love solukhumbu and everyone love you for all your generous support, helping to educated girls by keeping in school who otherwise will have at high risk of trafficking, child labors, abuse, child bride, early high child death rate and continue the circle but with your generous support together we are trying to break down the barriers that girls are facing many challenges here in Nepal.

During this pandemic, our very important work to keep girls safe and educate the world became more important than ever. Therefore, I like to extend tons of thanks for your most wise investment on girl’s education & supporting our mission.

We need your support more than ever! Please consider telling your friends and family about our work—you can share this link on social media, or just bring us up in conversation. Sharing with your community why you chose to support our organization, in your own language because they know you and understand better than anyone else.
