educate & empower
Bahini means “younger sister” in Nepali. Bahini Education Project provides social, economic, and academic support from secondary school through college and fosters consistent, long-term relationships with the bahinis and their families. We aim to educate and empower all bahinis we work with because we know that young women can be confident leaders, inspire others, have a greater role in society, and transform their communities.
Bahini Education Project strives to be Nepal's leader in empowering and supporting young women to fulfill their educational and career goals.
Investing in girls' education will create lasting positive change for individuals, families, and communities.
Secondary and postsecondary education is a tool for alleviating poverty and is the key to economic and social empowerment.
