STEM for Girls
1000 Girls: 1000 Futures
The primary aim of this project is to connect girls with mentors so that they can expand their horizon and broaden their vision of opportunity and future for themselves. This is the project partnered with The New York Academy of Sciences; where we connect 1000 girls to the 1000 women mentors from various parts of the world who can spend at few hours in a month and can impact in the life of a girl engaging her in various activities and providing opportunity.
Some 5 girls will be getting opportunity to be a part of the New York Academy of Sciences out of 1000 girls. The New York Academy of Sciences provide more opportunities for the girls beyond mentorships.

We prepare a group of 50 girls from Karnali in coordination with schools, local municipalities, districts and provincial government; and we organize two residential STEM workshops in the province headquarter, Surkhet and 10 virtual training sessions. It’s an annual program for empowering the girls from Karnali.
Karnali is the most remote geography of Nepal and the women and girls are facing numbers of problem due to lack of education. This is the project to empower the girls from Karnali Province in STEM, Education and Entrepreneurship.
There is good internet and connectivity in the province headquarter where we can run physical event in presence of the global experts; and for the continuation of the virtual sessions, we will provide one tablet per participant including the internet SIM card from Nepal Telecom.
