An Evening with Mira: Understanding the Nepal Challenge
Meet Mira Rai, an award-winning trail runner from Nepal and National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year 2017. As a child, she had to walk for two-three hours over steep hills to collect water. She left her school at the age of 12 when her family couldn’t afford her education.
Join us for our Vision in Action Talk on 16 March where you can hear from Mira herself and find out how you can help the children in Nepal.
• Face-to-face with Mira Rai
• Sharing on the needs of Nepal and the impact of World Vision’s interventions
• Sharing by trippers who recently visited Nepal
Poverty is high in Nepal, with close to 24% of the population below national poverty line and just over 16% living with less than 1 USD a day. Only 29.3% of girls finish secondary school compared to 53.5% of boys. About 75% of grade 3 children cannot read a grade level text with fluency and comprehension. In the Sindhuli East area where World Vision works, the illiteracy rate is 60%. Parents in poor families do not value the education of their children. Rather, they send their children to work at an early age to supplement family income, and it is common for children to drop out of school at the primary level. Furthermore, traditional teaching methods as well as poor school infrastructure have further hindered the educational development of children in the area.
Why Nepal Education?
Area Development Programme
Since 2013, World Vision Singapore has been supporting a community in Nepal called Sindhuli. It is one of the poorest and most deprived areas in Nepal, ranking 56 out of 75 districts in the national poverty deprivation list. The majority of the people in the area are dalits (untouchables) and indigenous Janajati. These groups are among the poorest people in Nepal. They depend on agriculture, manual labour and seasonal migrant labour for their livelihoods. Nepal is also second out of the worst ten countries in the world for child marriage.
When you sponsor a child for $45 a month, you’ll help a child, their family, and community to tackle the root causes of poverty.Real kids. Real impact. Real hope.
