Nepal has a long and bumpy road to achieve gender equality. Girls and young women, especially in rural Nepal are victims of double discrimination.
They face many challenges in their everyday life. Early marriages, psychological and sexual violence, societal traditions and superstitious beliefs put these vulnerable girls in a very difficult position.
We at SYMF continuously work to uplift these marginalized young women through education. We constantly challenge the deep-rooted misconceptions about their inferiority. Our volunteering program accomplishes two goals: bring everyone together and empower the “privileged borne women” to educate the “poor ones”. They all learn from each other, so they can understand each other perspective.
Each of us is responsible to continue the path to #EachforEqual.
