Girls Leadership Training (GOAL PROGRAMME, NEPAL)

Empowering Women of Nepal (EWN) is implementing the GOAL programme in Pokhara, Nepal starting June, 2013. Our goal is to empower and equip at-risk youths, especially girls, with valuable life skills as they deal with complex issues that are brought on by family, their peers and traditional society.

60 young girls from Janapriya Higher Secondary School (public school), Pokhara will participate in this pilot project for a total of seven months. An hour of life skills sessions followed by sports and other creative activities will be used to empower these young deserving girls.

Courses include:

Be Yourself –communication, peer pressure, learn to say No, conflict ladder, girls and boys, gender and work, who am I and what do I want to do.

Be Empowered – violence, breaking the silence, environmental issues, wants and needs, know your rights, papers for life, mapping resources, trafficking girls.

Be Healthy – body image, menstruation, real beauty, hygiene, contraception, bodies, emotions and sexuality, living with HIV.

Be Money Savvy – saving plans, managing money, challenges to savings, making a spending decision, the art of budgeting, ways to make money, skills vs quality, saving & borrowing wisely.

EWN is grateful to our donor Cottier Donze Foundation (Switzerland), 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking (Nepal), Janapriya Higher Secondary School (Nepal), Women Win, The Netherlands and the Goal Programme, India for all making it possible to bring GOAL to Nepal!

        Go EWN. Wishing you all kinds of success with this new program. It’s a great program and a great need. Self knowledge and esteem + life skills + a sense of empowerment and working within a team toward mutual goals through one’s body is a well rounded and not often experienced enrichment for women. Team sports and physical challenge is a profound way to build all kinds of life skills. Again, hooray for EWN for their vision and profound commitment to the women and the people of their home country, Nepal. Sandy Shaw
