⦁ Our Literacy program is conducted at Sundarijal and Nayapati Village Development Committee, Kathmandu in partnership with District Education Office, Kathmandu where 1174 illiterate adults benefitted from the program. The Nepal government program aims to have all of Nepal's citizens literate by 2015. The literacy program focuses on those who never had the opportunity for a formal education due to poverty, lack of awareness, migration, geographical distance, being a caretaker of family members, the need to farm to support their family or other familial obligations. Consequently, many rural citizens struggle with simple literacy tasks they may encounter in their daily lives. The majority of our students are women and young girls. They were denied an education in favor of their male counterparts. As a result, the literacy rate among females is very low in comparison to male. However, because of our literacy program, the literacy rate among women is steadily increasing. Those women who participate in our program become empowered and develop their leadership skills and dignity. The program runs for three months. Financial support is provided by District Education Office, Kathmandu. The need identification, timely implementation and completion, follow-up, coordination between stakeholders, reporting of the program is conducted by SDO-Nepal.
