Amics del Nepal initiated the Women Literacy Project at Bhimphedi Rural Municipality with an orientation project (in January 2022). We started with 15 women and provided them with all the necessary materials. A facilitator has also been hired for the support, and the space for the classes has been arranged. The classes were paused in February and March because most of the women were busy during harvest time. Then the project made a fresh start again on April 28 with the same number of students. The beneficiaries of the project are of different age groups and ethnicities. The main objective of this project is to develop the basic reading and writing skills of women and make them aware of their surroundings. In the classes, women are exposed to various activities such as health and hygiene workshops, guest speaker sessions on various important issues, field visits, and movies to expose them to a better learning environment.
The classes have been very helpful for the women there to also get awareness of important issues and their surroundings leading to healthy and productive lives.
This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics de Nepal and the collaborating partners:
