Over the next 3 years, 985 girls and 5000 beneficiaries will be reached throughout Nepal for gender equality.

YEAR 1 COMPLETE! Please take a look at our progress.


In March of 2018, we kicked off the Girls Empowerment Program in rural Nepal. Currently violence and discrimination against women is a major problem throughout the country and is compounded by the unequal social and labour relations and existing power structure. This program aims to empower young girls to ensure that they will have the capacity and opportunities to lead a dignified life and future, serving as role models for the rest of women in Nepal.
