Girls scholarship program in Solukhumbhu

volunteering in Nepal

Over half of the population don’t attend secondary school in Nepal, the reason is caste system, an archaic (and technically abolished, but still observed) form of social stratification, has become an almost insurmountable obstacle to development. Anita Ghimire, from our Solukhumbu Girls Scholarship Project is also considered as lower caste. They are deprived of entering temples, funeral places, restaurants, shop and other public places. They are also not allowed to utilize public drinking water taps and wells.
It’s a country imprisoned by its past.
Generation after generation, the caste system still divides.
So, our priority is to provide scholarship to discriminated and underprivileged girls who are deprived of quality education which will help to break the caste based discrimination in the society.
