ADWAN Nepal has been functioning in Nepal for more than two decades and has significantly contributed to enhance girls' quality education and women's quality of life from different perspectives with special focus to ensuring and promoting the educational and economic rights.

ADWAN is mainly focusing in Education and Economic empowerment from its implementation phase. Education is a social process aimed at performing different vital functions in society. ADWAN believe, girls' education play a significant role in the development process from family to broaden area. When they become mother, they can contribute to improve the literacy, awareness and health of their children and other family members too. We also believe the educated girls can contribute to building the nation in the days to come. Learning of ADWAN; “girls’ education is reducing early age marriage and women’s pregnancy rates, child mortality rates and lowers maternal mortality rates. Realizing the significance of education, ADWAN has been investing from its earlierphase.

COVID-19 is having a negative impact on girls’ Education, health and well-being and many are at risk of not returning to school once they reopen. Available research shows that prevalence of violence against girls and women has increased during the pandemic which directly hit their health, safety and overall well-being. Every day, girls face barriers to education caused by poverty, cultural norms and practices, poor infrastructure, violence, and fragility. ADWAN is seeking for collaboration from civil society organizations, the private sector, and donors to advance multi-sectorial approaches to overcome these challenges.

As girls stay at home because of school closures, their household work burdens might increase, resulting in girls spending more time helping out at home instead of studying. This might encourage parents, particularly those putting a lower value on girls' education, to keep their daughters at home even after schools reopen. Therefore, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, we might see more girls than boys helping at home, lagging behind with studying, and dropping out of school and college because of poverty. But all the girls who receiving scholarship from GG is continue their study after reopen the schools.

From the installments received from GG, we are in-line to select 24 girls of the target 50 deserving girls to send high school in 2020. That is why we hope your generous support will continue and we kindly request your help for the 26 remaining girls by donating again at https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/send-50-girls-to-high-school-in-nepal/. Also, please share this link with your family, friends and relatives because your small support make a big impact in the lives of many poor girls in rural Nepal. We at ADWAN express profound gratitude for the consistent and generous support from kind-hearted people like you. Together, in partnership, we will continue to be an agent of change for Dalit as well as other marginalized, poor women and children in Nepal. Special thanks from the bottom of our heart go to GlobalGiving team for creating such a wonderful platform and supporting needy people all over the world.

All the people of the earth are suffering by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the bad situation, Nepal has under go in lockdown from 24th March and still ongoing in educational institutions, cinema halls, super markets. To prevent people from contracting this virus, Nepal government announced to people for self-care. Due to the COVID-19, all the schools and colleges were unable to take exams so that, most of the educational institutions announced results on the basis of student's internal performance. But the students who are in final year of 12 must give their final exam after lockdown or when the time will be safer for students and teachers. COVID-19 is directly effecting finance, poverty, health, and the education system. All the schools and colleges are closed, but some private schools are trying to take online classes after this, government schools also trying to run online classes but lack of the fundamental equipment of poor family the online classes in not working properly. The scholars who are in their final year, their exams are postponed but they are learning and revising their subjects via virtual classes but all don't have excess of good internet service and smart mobile so they are in trouble to complete courses. They are contacting teachers through cellphone learning. According to the girls, it is so difficult to all the students to focus in study and complete course while they are feeling stressed about final exam date and about their future. They are just waiting for exam date and normal situation from COVID-19. From the installments received from GG, we are in-line to select 22 girls of the target 50 deserving girls to send high school in 2020. That is why we hope your generous support will continue and we kindly request your help for the 28 remaining girls by donating again at https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/send-50-girls-to-high-school-in-nepal/.

The pandemic spread of Novel Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has significantly disrupted every aspects of human life, including education. The alarming spread of the corona virus caused a havoc in the educational system forcing educational institutions to shut down. According to a UNESCO report, 1.6 billion children across 191 countries have been severely impacted by the temporary closure of the educational institutions.

As the consequence of the lockdowns, schools and universities in Nepal have been temporarily closed for plus 3 months now. As of the second week of May 2020, UNESCO (2020) estimates that nearly nine million (8,796,624) students in Nepal are affected due to school/university closures in response to the pandemic. Out of this number, 958, 127 (11%) are in pre-primary, 2,466,570 (28%) are in primary, 3,463,763 (39%) are in secondary and 404,718 (5%) are in tertiary education. Because of the compulsory closure of schools and universities for a considerable period of time, the education system has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning whereby teaching and learning is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms. However, there are many challenges around equitable access to e-learning, who are living in remote areas and don't have internet and other services.

The SEE result has been postponed several time due to the corona pandemic. The education ministry of Nepal decided and relayed the order to all the educational institutions to complete the mark-sheet of each student according to his/her performance of grade 9 and 10. Now, all the educational institution is preparing the SEE result, hope we will able to see the result soon. Still all people are in confusion, what after SEE result? How to get admission? How to join e-learning, how to buy educational stuffs? May be government of Nepal will develop the tools for admission, e-learning and other educational stuffs but girls of this project are from hill side where electricity supply has been connected but rarely have electricity and no internet excess. Due to the disturbance of electricity and lack of internet more girls won't involve into the e-classes.

From the installments received from GG, we are in-line to select 18 girls of the target 50 deserving girls to send high school in 2020. That is why we hope your generous support will continue and we kindly request your help for the 32 remaining girls by donating again at https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/send-50-girls-to-high-school-in-nepal/.

Also, please share this link with your family, friends and relatives because your small support make a big impact in the lives of many poor girls in rural Nepal. We at ADWAN express profound gratitude for the consistent and generous support from kind-hearted people like you. Together, in partnership, we will continue to be an agent of change for Dalit as well as other marginalized, poor women and children in Nepal.

We extend our deepest gratitude to all our donors for giving the light of hope to poor, needy girls from the remote areas of Nepal. In Nepal, only 1 in 5 women can properly read and write.Sending girls to school is a last priority in these rural, marginalized communities, where people have lived hand to mouth for generations. Even when given the chance to go to school, many obstacles make the likelihood of staying in school overwhelmingly challenging by having to work at home. In addition, girls tend to drop out of school prior to gaining admission to higher grades because their families, especially those with three or four children, simply cannot afford the costs for school fees, school maintenance, insurance, books, pens and uniforms. To make matters worse, colleges (where high school grades 11 and 12 are offered) often require large deposits paid up front at the beginning of the school year, as impossibility for families who work day jobs for daily subsistence wages. Often the most insurmountable obstacle is the shortage of accessible colleges, requiring students to travel to other towns to attend higher grades. These costs can be prohibitive. This is why ADWAN is committed to providing financial support to these girls enabling them to reach their full potential through receiving a quality education relevant to their needs.

Education, ADWAN believes isthe most lasting and effective way we can help girls and their families to escape from the cycle of poverty. It also represents a double investment – an investment in the girls but also an investment in the future of their family, society and country as well. The scholarship program operates primarily in rural areas where the poor make up nearly 50% of the population. Starting in 2008 with only 10 girls, the program has expanded and currently supports 1240 girls - the first women in their families to break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy.  

GlobalGiving fund for 2020 and 2021 is designated for the girls who will pass the SEE (Secondary Education Examination) in 2020. The SEE exam is going to start from 19th March and complete in 30th March 2020. The result will be published in May 2020. We will select the most deserving of the needy girls once result has published. From the installments received thus far from GG, we will able to send only 18 girls of the target 50 deserving girls to high school in 2020. That is why we hope your generous support will continue and we kindly request your help for the 32 remaining girls by donating again at https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/send-50-girls-to-high-school-in-nepal/.

ADWAN’s beneficiaries are low-caste, marginalized, poor Nepali women andchildren. Most live in remote rural areas isolated by ignorance, gender bias and the caste system, as well as marginalized in their families and communities. In one of the poorest nations in the world, Dalit women and girls are among the most vulnerable and the last to receive any education.

In a society where simply being able to write one’s name makes one “literate”, literacy rate for Dalit women lies between 12 and 24%, compared to the national average of 64%. Furthermore, Dalit & other marginalized boyshave a dismal rate of school attendance; and even many high caste men are illiterate. This is significant because girls’ education and women’s empowerment cannot thrive in a hostile and regressive social climate. To create a supportive environment where women and girls can flourish, it is crucial to educate an entire community. ADWAN works to nurture the whole community by promoting Dalit & other marginalized boys’ schooling, and emphasizing human rights education, while encouraging women and girls to lead.

To date, ADWAN’s Global Giving campaign has raised $5,615 of its $15,000 goal to send 50 deserving girls to high school. These funds support schooling for 18 girls; but $9385 remains to be raised for the 32 deserving girls still waiting to receive funds to attend high school. You can help them by donating again at https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/send-50-girls-to-high-school-in-nepal/

Please share this link with your friends and relatives. It's a small-scale project that will make a big impact in the lives of many poor girls in rural Nepal.

We at ADWAN express profound gratitude for the consistent and generous support from kind-hearted people like you. Together, in partnership, we will continue to be an agent of change for Dalit as well as other marginalized, poor women and children in Nepal.
