Pictured Above: A few of the kids who would walk with me as I headed to work and they to school.
For many families in Nepal, girls' education is either not a priority or not a possibility. 80% of girls drop out of school by 11th grade due to a range of factors including household responsibilities, inability to pay school fees, and child marriage.
Every year I help raise money to keep 11 girls in school. 100% of donations go to a Nepali nonprofit and help pay for school supplies, tuition, and other emerging needs that would otherwise force these girls to drop out of school. Several are now at university pursuing degrees in management and hospitality!
I hope you will join me in empowering these motivated girls to become leaders and changemakers in their communities.
