Empowering Women of Nepal organized 4 days “GOAL Camp” training in Chapakot -10 from March 12th to March 15th 2019. We distributed 26 books, 3 volleyballs, 3 footballs, 1 volleyball net, 3 pairs of badminton sets, and an air pump to the school for promotion of sports skill for children.
In order to empower adolescent girls through educational activities and sports so that they can make positive decisions for their future and have more equal participation in society and to mobilize the community against Gender based violence, Empowering Women of Nepal (EWN) conducted 4 days Girls Leadership Training (GOAL) camp on 20th– 23rd March and Girls Against Aggression (GAA) on 26th-29th March for 80 girls from Nava Pravat Secondary School and Mahendra Secondary School.
‘I learned many things through participating in this program. I learned more about menstruation, how to be hygiene, rights, and saving money. Not only this, had I learned about the violence faced by women in the society and to stand up against it. I would try my best to put in practice whatever I have learnt from this program.’ A participant
We would like to extend our deepest thanks to NOVO- Women Win for their financial support and all our facilitators for making this program successful.
EWN would like to congratulate all 36 participants from 12 different districts of Nepal who have successfully completed 38th Basic Female Trekking Guide Training. This one month intensive training covered the topics related to trekking, tourism, leadership, empowerment, health and basic English communication.
EWN successfully implemented the four days “Community Change Project” GOAL Camp for 86 girls in Shree Nepal Rashtriya Secondary School, Mahuwan-5, in the Parsa district of Nepal.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to our supporters who donated to EWN via Global Giving and to Mr. Manoj R. (social worker), the school Principal, teachers and staff members of Shree Nepal Rashtriya School for their invaluable assistance in the field.
