The Small World USA supports 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.
In 2017 and 2018 The Small World in the USA and Nepal are partnering to facilitate three key projects:
Goal: To provide school scholarships/sponsorships to 50 children, both girls and boys, from villages in the Solukhumbu region of Nepal.
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.
Goal: To build a community center in the village of Phuleli.
