Girls’ Empowerment Program
Thanks to the support of the GO community, we were able to further the efforts of General Welfare Pratisthan (GWP), an organization committed to combating the sex trafficking of girls in Nepal through education, skills training, and small business support. GO funds were used to expand GWP’s successful empowerment groups to two new districts. Thirty new groups were established directly impacting 450 girls! The girls received vocational training and microloans to start small businesses. This support enabled the girls to become financially independent and greatly reduced their chances of being trafficked.
