Strong girls!

Adolescent girls (and boys) from Dalit and other marginalised communities in South Nepal get access to quality education and a brighter future

Students at Mayadevi School in Rupandehi
Girls (and boys) from marginalized and Dalit communities have equitable access to inclusive quality education enabling them to complete primary school and transition to secondary education in three districts in Terai (Rupandehi, Kapilbastu, Palpa). Educational standards will be improved and enable all students to achieve targets in 15 schools (teachers training for 160 teachers, separate toilets for girls). Dalit girls (900) are confident and competent to fully take part in school life. Dalit women/families (600) are empowered and engage for their daughters’ education and are improving household income through micro-finance and income generating activities. All local stakeholders are
sensitized and committed to improve access to quality education for Dalit children, girls and all children. The ministry for education includes findings in the general curriculum thus benefiting many more marginalised girls.
