We are excited to share progress in Tharu communities in Dang. We are encouraged by the community activities and progress of women led groups made possible through your contributions. Thank you. Highlights 276 Tharu women are associated in eight community cooperative groups and other women are interested in joining or starting a group to improve their socio-economic status. Groups meet each month to share progress and make plans for the coming month. The Get-One Give-One, goat gift program is run through these groups and this month 26 families received a baby female goat from group members who received goats last year. Each groups consists of about 26 women who received three days of self-help group management training from our staff. This training is focused on good record keeping, planning and implementing skills for community activities. Challenges Group members are requesting basic literacy classes in their own language (Tharu) and then in Nepali, the national language. For three literacy classes need funds to recruit one project supervisor and train three class facilitators. In addition the each class will require teaching and learning materials. Thank you for your continued support to these women communities in Nepal. Please continue to check our website, for updates on our progress, and share the link with friends and family.
