Many of the GEE Nepal girls have parents who are, or have been, in jail. This is because GEE operates as a special project under Prisoners’ Assistance Nepal (PA Nepal). Prisoners in Nepal are among the most vulnerable people – they are stigmatized by neighbours, villagers and family members, and their families face enormous financial and emotional hardship.
This fits perfectly with GEE’s vision of wanting to help vulnerable and disadvantaged girls in Nepal. To qualify for our sponsorship programme a child needs to fulfill three conditions: to be a female, to be from verified underprivileged background, & currently not attending school.
