Hi everyone, I have started this campaign as a part of CGI U Commitment challenge. The Clinton Global Initiave 2017 will take place in October at Northeastern University, Boston which will be hosted by Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton. As a part of the commitment to action, I am working towards providing better lives for Musahar women and girls of Nepal .
Musahars are one of the most poor and ostracized communities of Nepal. They are considered untouchables and stigmatized which prevents them to actively enter workforce or avail education. Even though, Nepal has laws which has made untouchability illegal, Musahars face innumerable problems while trying to obtain education and jobs. They lie in the lowest income bracket, which further worsen their living conditions giving a high rise to disesases and a high mortality rate.
The Musahar women and girls face even more adverisities due to lack of education and no income source on top of gender discrimination. Hence, I am committed to change the lives of Musahar women and girls who live in a small town of Rajbiraj in Nepal where I am originally from.
The funds that you will donate/ have donated will go towards empowering these women by giving access to education, skill training workshops, vocational training to raise income, and a safe office space for developing entrepreneurial skills.
Please help and spread the word by sharing!
