Zonta Club of Kathmandu support to Empower Girls in Dhanusha by donating bicycles
Zonta Club of Kathmandu, an NGO that has been working towards women rights and empowerment, has taken initiative in collaboration with the Hemisphere Fashion and Teach For Nepal (TFN) to empower girls in Dhanusha by donating 50 bicycles. The 50 girls from four different schools of Dhanusha were selected by TFN Fellows based on their economic background and who excel and are hard-working students. They have to walk 3-4 kms daily otherwise. Zonta Club of Kathmandu distributed bicycles for girls from class 5 to class 8 on the premises of Shree Janata Madhyamik Vidhyalaya, Ramaul on December 2.
Through this initiative, Seema Golchha, President of Zonta Club of Kathmandu shares, “These cycles will help in giving continuation to girl education. They will not drop out from school due to distance. We want to see every girl getting equal opportunity in education.”
