Not everybody gets the opportunity to go to school. Especially for women in Nepal.
For many different reasons they are being kept for going to school. Some girls are raised up as housewives, marry young and have to run the households and raise their baby. Some parents do not have the money to send their children to school. And so the reasons go on and on.
The womenschool in Kirtipur, give these women the opportunity to receive education!
It does not matter how old the women are, everybody is welcome! Their is a huge variety range in age at the school; from 18 till 60 years old.
At the school, they learn the women Nepali, how to write and to read. Most of the women do not know how to read or write.
" I wish I could read the paper instead of needing my kids to ask what is writing. I am supposed to teach my kids, not the other way around"
What can you do?!
Help them by teaching them English. Nowadays, English is needed everywhere.
To create chances for them to get jobs, they need to be able to speak and read English.
