BENEFITING: EMPOWER NEPALI GIRLS INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 18, 2014
Goal: I am raising $5,550 to bring education, opportunity & hope to at risk girls in Nepal, specifically to send 10 girls to primary school, 1 woman to university, and to provide 3 students computers through Empower Nepali Girls (ENG). I'm joining a volunteer team in Nepal this December to meet with ENG girls, their families, and the schools. 100% of the proceeds of your donations go directly to ENG.
Why: Earlier this year I took a leave from work to fulfill one of my dreams of traveling the world. While hiking the Annapurna Mountains in Nepal I met with students & volunteers from ENG and was inspired by seeing their mission in action –empowering and supporting neglected, marginalized, and at-risk girls in Nepal through education. The girls in Nepal are at high risk of being forced into early marriage, sold into trafficking, or abandoned as orphans. Through ENG the girls are given education and a support structure to provide them equality, opportunity, and a better life.
Learn More: ENG supports over 200 scholarship recipients who receive all the necessities they require, including uniforms, supplies, books, shoes, fees and community support. ENG is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Learn more: http://EmpowerNepaliGirls.org/
