With this International Day of the Girl Child, Bridges Between supports girls by supporting women’s education. Mothers who understand the links between education and livelihood fight for their daughter’s rights to equal education in the rural areas of Nepal.
Bridges Between is sponsoring the first ever Teacher Training in the Taksindu, Solukhumbu, Region of Nepal! Trainers Sarala and Mahanta will spend four days leading workshops for ten women identified as leaders in their communities. Training will focus on the importance of women’s education, cultural preservation and addressing the links between education and livelihood. Please donate to support this effort!
Last week Katherine left for Nepal to visit the schools and ask students and teachers what assistance Bridges Between can offer in 2017.

This year Katherine will send photos and updates throughout the entire trip thanks to the newly installed internet in the Taksindu district. Read more

Our dear friend Pasang reached out to share photos of his most recent project – the reconstruction of his home! Pasang’s previous home was badly damaged during the earthquake last year. However, it’s safe to say that him and his lovely young family have a beautiful new home, nestled above the solar greenhouse project in the village of Chhulemu.
