My mitzvah project will be to raise money in support of Empower Nepali Girls. ENG’s mission is to empower and support neglected, marginalized, and at-risk girls and young women in Nepal, especially those who are at greatest risk to be forced into early marriage, sold into sex slavery, or abandoned as orphans. They provide scholarships, mentoring, career guidance, and subsistence for children who would not have the opportunity to attend school and pursue future careers in medicine, engineering, business, teaching, and other professions.
Many of these girls have dreams to get a good job and giving to this charity will give these girls a chance to follow their dreams. Just $170 sends one girl to school for an entire year with all the supplies she needs including books, school supplies and a uniform.
Empower Nepali Girls is important to me because if I was in their position I would be devastated.
It is very important that kids get a good education so they can get a job. My very close family friend, Uncle Sameer, is the president of Empower Nepali Girls and introduced me to the organization and my family and I have been supporting it for over 5 years.
Thank you for your support and for donating.
