This past holiday season (2012-2013), we were able to raise $3120 to support our partner, Himalayan Healthcare’s Education Program! This year, donations will go towards a Women’s Empowerment Program. Thank you everyone for your generous donations!
What is the Women’s Empowerment Project about?
Through your generous contribution, Himalayan Healthcare (HHC) will be able to facilitate the training of teachers to lead the women’s empowerment program, cover the cost of running such a program, and provide some monetary support to the women as an incentive to attend the classes. Educating a woman educates her entire family. Women are supported through group discussions in domestic violence, alcohol, immunization, birth spacing, hygiene, child care, nutrition, animal care, vegetable farming and any other issue they deem important. In the past, these classes have not only raised awareness in women about making positive changes in their lifestyles, but also given them immense confidence to speak up about about diverse issues they face in the village. The Women Empowerment classes have been launched in two villages of Tipling and Sherthung, and with your generous support, we hope to expand them to neighboring areas as well.
