THE GIRL'S EDUCATION PROJECT

Girls' education has been ignored in Nepalese communities for various reasons such as, cultural traditions, an unsuitable schooling environment & financial problems. It is particularly rare for girls that come from poor & Dalit families in rural villages of Nepal, to receive an education.

This is one of our on goining projects

  • Need

    Need

    Girl's education is still ignored in Nepal, particularly in remote villages amongst poor & Dalits families. The major reasons for this are cultural beliefs, an education for girls is supposed unnecessary, the school environment, a lack of awareness, affordability, plus a lack of motivation in parents to promote girl's education. Some effort is being made by the government to address this issue but still 60% of girls are not in school and most of them drop out of school by age of twelve.

    Solution

    We believe that there is enough evidence to suggest- investing in girls' education will bring the highest return to individuals, families, communities & nations. Therefore, we will support 90 girls most in need of schooling. We will raise awareness concerning the importance of girls' education through their parents. We will monitor the girls in the scheme on a regular basis to avoid dropping out from schooling. We will also work closely with schools & teachers to improve the school environment.

  • Impact

    Impact

    There is enough evidence to suggest that an educated mother will ensure that her children will be educated regardless of gender, will raise healthier babies & contribute to better family planning.

    Increases in the number of girls are in school and finishing their school.

    Risk

    Some girls may not attend school regularly despite receieving our support.

    A regular family visit by the project social warriors to ensure the gilrs are attending school and after school classes to those it is necessory

    Some parents may engage their daughters in house-works and discourage to go to school, as it is now.

    Again, a regular family visit & raising awareness about importance of education will reduce the risk.

    Reporting

    We will publish reports from the project periodically and will also communicate through emails, newsletters, Facebook and events.
