empowering young girls

About the Foundation

Posted by  at 16 FEB 3:20 pm

Empower Nepali Girls, originally established as the Madhav Ghimire Foundation in 2001, was created to help provide educational opportunities for the most neglected children of Nepal, especially young girls from the lowest caste who would otherwise be unable to attend school and how may be at greatest risk to be sold into domestic or sex slavery. The guiding mission of the Empower Nepali Girls is to raise funds from individuals and organizations to assist and mentor girls with the greatest potential to transform their communities and country. Girls are selected based on financial need, as well as academic potential and performance.
It costs so little money to sponsor a child’s education, just $100 per year, which provides fees, school uniforms, books, and supplies for one year in primary or secondary school. It costs $2,500 per year or more to support a girl in higher education. Most of our girls wish to become doctors, nurses, engineers, teachers, and even enter politics. Since the founders and administrative staff volunteer their time and expertise, there are few administrative costs and little overhead–three-quarters of all money donated goes directly to the children’s education. We are currently supporting close to 200 children in 11 different villages and almost every region of the country.
Empower Nepali Girls is tax exempt charitable organization that is supported totally from contributions and volunteer efforts. It is registered in both Nepal and in the United States as a 501(c)(3).
