Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Our purpose is to provide holistic, needs based support and education and training to women and girls in Nepal who've experienced abuse or are at risk, especially of sex trafficking and violence. Project Didi Australia supported our partner organizsation, Asha Nepal to move from housing girls in an institution setting to establishing Family Group Homes and Family Reintegration and Family Strengthening Programs. Our support included counselling, rent for a family group home, basic medical costs, school fees, and other educational and recreational expenses for young girls. Our Youth to Youth program focused on positive psychology and personal development and involved Australian and Nepali students in peer to peer learning, interaction and fun. Training workshops were delivered to Asha Nepal staff and girls by skilled Australian volunteers in social work , dance and fire safety. We provided scholarships to 5 girls in high school and another in second year nursing. Through our partner Samunnat Nepal, an organisation empowering survivors of violence we provided a scholarship for an older teenager returning to high school.
