In Nepal, a girl’s education is often neglected, most simply because half of the population cannot afford to pay for schooling. In addition, there are other factors such as traditional, cultural, and geographical issues that prevent more than half of these girls from attending school. As a result, many are forced to become a child bride as early as 16, and thus spend the rest of their lives being unable to read, write, or earn a living; this similar culture is then passed on to their own daughters.
These girls need your support to continue their education and break the cycle of illiteracy and poverty. Join the thousands of caring people who are passionate about helping those girls create a better future for themselves through education.
There are many different ways you can show your care: by donating, by volunteering in one of our girls’ education projects, by holding your own fundraising event to raise money for this cause, or by simply sharing with others about this cause and our work.
We believe Education is the Key solution for many problems facing the developing world – such as those Nepal is facing today.
