We have started the Girls Against Aggression training in Shree Barahi Higher Secondary School in Pokhara. A variety of tools and concepts are introduced to help girls recognize and better understand violence in order to prevent it and keep themselves safe. This 5 day intensive training is funded by the Cottier Donze Foundation from Switzerland.
Nine team members from 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking & Empowering Women of Nepal (EWN) and one participant from Go Sports Nepal are getting ready to depart for the United States for an Exchange Program called “Empowering Girls Leadership Camp.”
In March 2016, 10 participants from Soccer without Borders from the United States travelled to Nepal. They observed and participated in EWN’s GOAL Program, were involved in a cultural exchange program, went on a 4 day Leadership Trek, engaged with a women’s group in Dhampus village, and organized a soccer clinic in Kathmandu for girls of Go Sports Nepal.
We hope this exchange will expand the horizons of our team members, foster lasting friendships, gain international perspective, provide opportunities for personal growth, self-development, learning and wisdom.
EWN is grateful to the U.S State Department for funding this program to Women Win for their continued support and to Soccer without Borders for hosting and organizing this exchange.

This nine months program for 80 participants was funded by the Cottiers Donze Foundation from Switzerland. Congrats all!
To come in line with recent government changes it is being decided that we needed to minimize our commitment to the children home. With this in mind some of the girls have returned to various family members and continue to be supported by EWN for their education. A number of girls have gone into hostels and again continue to be supported by EWN. All the girls continue to be welcome at 3 Sisters family for their holidays and festivals and this will be their home as long as they need our support.
We thank you for your continuing support ensuring that these girls receive a good education and all the support that they deserve.
