Challenge

Thousands of girls across Nepal cannot complete their high school education & are married young. Among others one of the key reason they drop is their long commute & associated school expenses. They become tired & are insecure on the way. Expected to help with household chores, girls are often kept at home while their brothers attend school. Due to this they are irregular & often late for school & are finally turned into drop-outs. This project is supporting the education of 1000 girls in Nepal.

Solution

This project is supporting a bicycle gift & other educational support to 1000 poor & marginalized girls to continue their high school education and end child, early, and forced marriage in Nepal. With a bicycle in hand, a girl feels empowered, is more secure on the way, regular in school saves time & energy for better performance that helps her complete her high school education & is capacitated & bold enough to say NO to the child, early and forced marriage.

Long-Term Impact

JWAS is supporting education of 1000 Nepali girls to have their high school education and avoid child, early & forced marriage at home. Voices of girls in the typical male-dominated Nepali family are rarely heard & valued. An educated girl is matured & confident enough to decide about her carriers, marriage & her role in the family & society. She can influence the family decision & even convince her parents for the best for her. Once a girl is educated & empowered rest she will do it all alone.
