Educate Girls

The girl child in Nepal is often deprived from her right of an education. The number of girls dropping out of school far exceeds the boys because girls are expected to help at home, either with household work like washing and cooking or with taking care of younger siblings.

Since girls spend more time performing domestic duties and this increases the gap between female and male equality in rural parts of Nepal, it perpetuates the myth that education is of no help to the girl and her primary job will be  to look after the household work, get married early, have children and then raise them.

If this is the job she has to do, then education is of no importance to her and it is not imparted. Also, even with education and financial independence, women might not get the same rights and liberties which a man may have. It is through education in the early days of a child that we can bring about behavior changes and open doors to opportunities that will enhance their confidence, personality and career. Women's education is the key to reducing discrimination against girls.
