GEE Nepal is a New Zealand charity organisation focused on empowering young girls in Nepal through education. They run a great initiative to run programmes to facilitate the education that these girls need and deserve.
At the end of this year, representatives from the GEE Nepal will fly over to Nepal and continue to do their amazing work. This is where they need us! The aim of this page is to raise enough money to BUY school supplies for Girls in Nepal. They have blankets and other provisions but what they need is stationary! Books, Pencils, teaching posters etc.
100% of the funds raised will go to purchasing school supplies that go directly to the girls in Nepal! AMAZING!
Often, we don’t know where the money we donate goes to however, for this cause…we do! So, let’s get behind it and donate as much as we can. Even a $1 can go a long way! Every little bit counts. I’ve put an open goal so you can donate to your heart’s desire.
(P.S. The site made me put a minimum amount of $250+ but the goal is as much as we can by the deadline !!)
Thank you guys so much!!
(A little bit more information for those who are keen and lean!)
Why Nepal? And Why girls?
Nepal, unfortunately, is one of the world's poorest country. Almost 25% of their population, that’s 7.25 MILLION people (!!!), live below the poverty line. In term of literacy rates, the country stands at 66%. The literacy rate for women stands at 57%. Girls in the country unfortunately, like in many Asian countries, do not get the same opportunities to study to and beyond secondary school. These girls want to learn, they want to work and want to help their families. We can play a small part in helping these girls achieve their dreams to an education.
