Proud to be a Girl

If she is educated she will do the rest with pride

Being born a girl in a developing country like Nepal is challenging as girls face discrimination and are held back in every step of life but at The Small World we strongly believe that if we could only provide girls an educational opportunity she will feel proud to be born a girl. On the International Day of the Girl we would like to share some amazing stories of the girls who are proud of them being born as girl.

The Small World is very happy to share some of the successful girls stories & launch our new program "I am proud to be a girl" on 11th October, The Day Of The Girl. With this new program we will be creating awareness and proving education opportunity to remote Nepal girls to bring gender equality in education and make them feel proud of being a girl.

According to World Bank, today girls’ education is a strategic development priority. Better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labor market, earn higher incomes, have fewer children, marry at a later age, and enable better health care and education for their children, should they choose to become mothers. All these factors combined can help lift households, communities, and nations out of poverty.
