Ritu Tops the President’s Running Shield Competition

Ritu is one of the girls that we support through the Captivating Village Program (CVP) in Nepal. The Captivating Village Program aims to empower out-of-school girls in the villages around Nepal. The program includes offering scholarships, providing life skills training, assigning a staff member to oversee the girls’ well-being, conducting awareness sessions for parents and leaders, and improving the quality of education resources at the local school. This comprehensive plan seeks to address issues such as school dropout, child marriage, and poverty, ultimately transforming the lives of the girls and their families.

Girl Receives Award

Ritu Receives Award for Sports

Ritu’s family hails from a humble background, where her mother works on a farm and her father works as a driver. Ritu struggled to attend school with her two older sisters because of their financial difficulties.

During a recent field visit, our team evaluated their situation, provided educational assistance, and raised awareness about the importance of education and human rights. The family expressed deep gratitude for the support received and emphasized the paramount importance they place on education.

Despite the obstacles, Ritu excels in taekwondo, achieving the top position in the President’s Running Shield competition and earning accolades in various school sports events. Her talent in sports was further highlighted when she won a cash prize of NPR 10,000 (USD 75) in an interschool taekwondo competition. Ritu’s accomplishments emphasize the positive impact of educational assistance and support in nurturing holistic development, showcasing her dedication and talent in academics and sports.
