Literacy goes a long way for many Nepali women and girls. It allows women and girls to build livelihoods, understand critical information, and prevents vulnerable girls from entering a cycle of trafficking or child marriage. That’s why World Education Nepal and its partners work with local communities to improve girls’ education and literacy. One particular woman whose life improved through World Education Nepal’s literacy efforts is Rajiya Khatun of Samsi Rural Municipality in Mahottari.
This Kathmandu Post article details how Rajiya changed from a 35-year old woman without education to an activist in her community. Read the story below and learn more about our efforts on the site.
