Nepal: Empowering girls and their communities
Give girls in Nepal the opportunity to develop and increase their self-confidence. By offering an outreach program to girls in their communities around Kathmandu in which education, health care and personal development (sports & life skills) are central, you not only change the lives of these girls, but we structurally build self-reliant communities.
When girls are given the opportunity to go to school, to develop and to decide about their own lives, they make a structural difference to their communities.
Empowerment is central to this. Strengthening communities, but also on an individual level, stimulating personal power among young people, especially girls. With the Volleybal4life program we use volleyball (the No. 1 sport in Nepal) as a tool to discover who you are, what you are good at, and how you can make a difference for yourself, your family and your community. For girls and young women in particular, a sport such as volleyball can contribute to improving their position as women in general. Girls and women who excel in sports can act as role models for other girls and women. This can ultimately lead to a change in women's self-image.
