Girls Empowerment Program Y2

Results: Final Report

Thanks to the support of the GO community, we were able to support General Welfare Pratisthan (GWP), an organization committed to making lasting positive change in the lives of Nepali girls who are in jeopardy of being trafficked or have escaped from sexual slavery, to continue their socioeconomic and youth empowerment programs in the Bara and Parsa Districts and to establish 20 new peer-to-peer support groups in the area. Each group is comprised of 12-15 girls who receive educational and business loans to help them become independent, mentoring from their peers, life skills trainings, and knowledge to prevent child trafficking in their community. This was GO’s sixth grant to GWP, and we are excited to continue to work with them to reach more girls living in the Parsa and Bara Districts.
