Increased participation of girls
Dear Generous Donor,
Namaskar and a warm greeting from Nepal!
Today, I come to you again with a brief report of the project loved and donated by you 'Send a Girl to High School with a Bicycle Gift' https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/send-girls-to-higher-secondary-school-with-a-cycle-gift/ by Janaki Women Awareness Society (www.jwas.org.np), Nepal. Your support has contributed in moving a step forward for our journey in ending child marriage through increased participation of girls in schools and keeping them there until they complete their higher secondary education.
This time I have tried to put the mini survey findings of five schools where the bicycle distribution event has been held already by the project and the teacher's perspectives about the bicycle project there:
On our main questioner of what is the immediate impact of the bicycle gift for high school girls in the schools? – In summary we found their key responses like this:
- Number of girls enrollment in the school has been increased
- Girls participation in extracurricular activities in the school has been increased
- They are coming forward - their performance in the class and pass out percentage has been increased
- Bicycle recipient girls have rarely missed and late for schools
- Issues of child marriage has also become a topics of discussion in their home, neighbors, community and awareness level on this in those community has been increased
Whatever the immediate impact has been, this all has become possible from the donations made by you for the project. With your generous donation we can reach to more schools and more girls who are in threat of leaving the schools and marrying earlier.
We heartily thank all the donors and really appreciate and value your every donation for the cause - Increasing access of girls in the high schools and ending child marriage. Thank you to all the respondents of the mini survey and all those who are working whatever they can for ending child marriage in Nepal and elsewhere.
Please feel free to contact me for more details.
