Chyangsar: Individual Scholarships

Girls have to take on many household duties from an early age. Whether they can go to school or not is of secondary importance. Many can hardly read and write, they are especially important as workers. Due to the poverty of their families, many girls in rural areas are still married very early, even at the age of 12 to 16. There they live together with a (often much older) man whom they almost do not know and also have to run the household under the strict supervision of their mothers-in-law. Only through education is it possible to break this cycle: without education, young women are dependent on their husbands and their families. If this dies or leaves them, they have hardly any chances. Sometimes they are also chased away by their husbands or parents-in-law when they give birth to a girl. But even when they are married, they often do not escape poverty: the mothers then have to decide whether they prefer to feed their children or send them to school. These children then have just as few chances as their mothers.

Our role

We have developed our own process to support our scholarship holders: Through regular meetings with parents (especially mothers), teachers and the girls themselves, the life situation of the scholarship holders is closely monitored and important topics are discussed with the family. Together we discuss what the girls really need in order to work optimally on their education. In this way, individual consideration can be given to special situations. Our local employee Kusang Tamang visits the girls regularly and hands over the materials.
