Goal: Sponsor schooling costs for female students to empower gender equality in education
Girls in Nepal are at a high risk of dropping out of school due to poverty, societal pressure for early marriage, and family duties. As a result, we wanted to provide female students with the financial support and motivation to continue their education.
Provided scholarships for a total of 40 girls to date
Female students we sponsored felt a greater sense of empowerment to push back against conservative societal pressures (e.g., teenage marriages) and actively promote their experiences in school to others
With education comes greater ability for female students to participate in decision-making forums, contribute meaningfully to their family’s income and well-being, and set positive example for future generations of female scholars
