The Lasting Effect of Educating Underprivileged Communities

Juni is from one of the underprivileged villages in Nepal. Her family struggled financially due to their large size, so she left school to work alongside her father as a laborer at just twelve years old. Since she was the eldest child, she knew she needed to help support her family. One day, a staff member in Nepal saw her picking up sacks of sand on her way to work and interviewed her about the Captivating Village Program (CVP). She was very much willing and excited for the opportunity to go back to school, so we talked to her parents about the value of education.

When we interviewed Juni’s mother, she admitted that she didn’t deem education to be important, especially in underprivileged communities where she was born. Survival was the topmost priority, and education was just an option for the family. Raising her five children has already been challenging for them.  Fortunately, our implementing team in Nepal recognized their situation and provided educational materials and encouragement to enable children to attend school. It is through the Captivating Village Program that Juni Praja continues to receive an education.

Her mother is deeply grateful for the assistance and pledges to give her the best environment at home for her education.  Stories like these remind us of the importance of education, especially in underprivileged communities. The influence of the CVP is not limited to the girls who receive scholarships but extends to their parents and the entire community. The program raises awareness about the importance of education, which has a lasting effect on their lives. We are grateful for our sponsors who play a crucial role in ensuring that children like Juni have access to education and a chance to break the cycle of poverty.


HELP US CREATE MORE IMPACT

In 2023, the Captivating Village Program initiative reached 18 villages in Nepal. Every time $5,000 in funding is secured from a generous donor (or group of donors), another village program can be planned and implemented.
