BENEFITING: EMPOWER NEPALI GIRLS INC
The guiding mission of Empower Nepali Girls is to educate and mentor the most neglected girls of Nepal, namely lower caste young women who are otherwise unable to attend school. Many of these young women are at-risk of being sold into domestic or sex slavery; for them, an education is the only path to freedom. Young women are chosen by their financial need as well as their perceived potential to transform their communities and continue the cycle of education. More information on the foundation can be found at www.empowernepaligirls.org.
This coming December, I will have the incredible privilege to return to Nepal to award new scholarships and to mentor and track existing scholarship recipients. As part of this commitment, however, I have agreed to raise a minimum of $5,000 for scholarship funds… and I need a little help! Empower Nepali Girls is registered in the United States and Nepal as a 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax-deductible. Any donation is much appreciated and truly does go a long way, for it costs just $100 to send a girl to primary or secondary school, and "when you educate a girl you educate a nation."
