Girls Bachelor’s Education Initiative

Every year, The Small World provides 40 girls from the Solukhumbu with safe lodging, clean water, school tuition, fees, uniforms, books, school supplies, additional curriculum (such as computer classes) at the Girls Higher Education hostel in Salleri, Nepal. This program supports girls in grades 11 and 12. But when they finish here, many girls want to continue their studies at the Bachelor’s level and many programs of study are only available in Kathmandu.

You can help change a life and 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.

Nursing students need a sponsorship of roughly $1200+/year for a 3 year program. Students of engineering, public health, business management and social work need a sponsorship of roughly $800+/year for a 4 year program. (Please view the profiles of individual girls to view cost breakdowns for their specific programs of study.)

Sponsor a student in full or partially by donating today.

Sponsors will be matched with one of our motivated, intelligent, hard-working young women and we’ll send you information about them  – pictures, updates, progress reports and more. To discuss specific young women that need sponsorship please contact us. We’d be happy to share their stories with you!
