The magnificent Himalayan Mountains reach into the heavens, but the valleys of this region are filled with poverty, child exploitation, and little opportunity for education.
HOPE has worked in Nepal for over 20 years, running children’s homes and advancing the education of children and young women. Education is widely recognized as the gateway to economic security and opportunity, particularly for girls and women, however, poverty is a primary factor limiting a girls’ access to education.
In many areas of Nepal, earnings are not sufficient to meet even half of the family’s yearly needs. Women aren’t provided with the necessary skills to generate an income, quality education opportunities are unavailable, and there is a general lack of communication, transportation, safe drinking water, and health facilities.
Our programs bring gender equality in education, build awareness of gender issues, and support women through skills training while building their capacity in society.
