BENEFITING: EMPOWER DALIT WOMEN OF NEPAL INC
http://leahtakesonnepal.bbnow.org/events.php Hey You! Check out the above link to support me in my venture towards a summer of service in Nepal as an intern with CWish Nepal! While you're stopping by...give a little bit or a lot a bit to Empower Dalit Women! Remember: Women for Women! Finally taking the journey to South Asia! Nepal has one of the highest illiteracy rates in the world. With two thirds of adult women and one third of all adult men experiencing illiteracy, Nepal's education is in need of critical repair and redesign from the inside out. As a young female student interested in gender issues as well as indigenous cultures, I am greatly anticipating learning about fundamental traditional barriers to the economica advancement of women and betterment and elongation of education for young girls in Nepal. This is experiential service that I hope to bring back with me as I prepare myself to educate others in understanding that the fight for the recognition of dignity for those lesser persons in the world is far from over.
