In this report, we would like to share about our yearly progress on Girls Empowerment Programme with is a part of PHASE's Integrated Education Project. Please find the report below:

Gender mainstreaming is another top priority of PHASE Nepal education programmes. While women focused acivities are blended in all of the PHASE's programmes including health and livelihoods improvement, PHASE also runs a specific programme to mobilize and empower all the adolescent girls of the project village. The programme named Girls Empowerment Programme involves the rural adolescent girls in a yearlong activity at school level and community level with the help of trained community facilitators.

This year a total of 93 girls from Kasigaun Gorkha took part in the empowerment training and follow up activities. A training of trainers was conducted by PHASE team for the locally 8 identified and selected female facilitators and 3 aspiring lady teachers. This year a total of 93 girls took part in the empowerment programme covering all the school going adolescent girls of the village. The girls took part in a two week long interactive training and learning sessions in the schools organized for two hours (7-9 AM) in the morning with a facility of morning meals so they could eat and join their regular school classes. During the training the following thematic topics were discussed and practices with interactive games and activities.

  • Girls Only: Creating a Safe Space
  • Clean Rules! Hygiene
  • "Help! What’s Happening To Me?”; Demystifying Puberty
  • It's That Time of the Month; All about Menstruation
  • Staying Safe
  • Harming Someone is NEVER Alright; The realities of domestic violence
  • Tying the Knot Too Early; The perils of early marriage
  • I’m Not For Sale! The reality of human trafficking in Nepal
  • Hands Off!; Sexual abuse
  • Girl Power; Building confidence and self-esteem.
  • Our Mother’s Legacy
  • A Real Life Leader; Guest Speaker.
  • The Girl’s Only Team”-Peer Support
  • Putting It All Together; Reviewing what we have learned
  • Follow Your Dream- Education and Career.
  • Putting the Girl Effect in Action
  • Action Plan
  • Evaluation Day- What I have changed!

After the completion of the training the girls took part in several out reach activities in the village and the school level. The team conducted two different street drama covering issues like menstrual hyegine, modern day human trafficking , the consequence of early age marriage, importance of education and career for girls. They also took part in several extracurricular activities in the schools with the support of PHASE in management and prizes. The girls who were very shy on the first day of their participation in the programme became confident speakers and active participants in academic and co-curricular activities after taking part in the programme. PHASE will continue to provide follow up support to these girls in the next two years.

 “After I took part in girls empowerment programme, I have discovered a new aspiration for myself. Earlier my plan was to finish school and get married as my mom suggested. But now I would like to go to college, get a degree and get a job and will stand on my own feet. I aspire to work in organizations like yours.” - Esmita, a participant from Manjushree School, Kashigaun
