Our Work

The Small World USA empowers girls, women and communities in the Himalaya. We support locally driven sustainable community development projects in Himalayan regions, including Nepal. These projects help to break the cycle of poverty by working to provide education for children (especially young girls at risk for exploitation), empowerment, and opportunities for local communities.

We partner with The Small World in Nepal to accomplish projects that have tangible and profound impacts in the lives of girls, their families and their communities.

The Small World in the USA and Nepal are partnering to facilitate these key projects:

Girls Bachelor’s Education Initiative

Goal: To provide scholarships to 12 girls from the Solukhumbu for Bachelor’s degree programs in Kathmandu.

For $750/year ($62.50/month), you can sponsor one of these bright, motivated young women to help them continue their education in courses of study including nursing, engineering, public health, business management, social work and more. Sponsor a student in full or partially by donating today. Learn more.

The Friends of Arhaus Children’s Home

Goal: To build a fully supportive home for 100 children in Salleri, Solukhumbu. This home will provide lodging, food, loving care, access to quality education at a local private school and more.
