girls’ education

GIVE THEM A HEADSTART

What happens when a Nepali girl isn’t in school? She is 3x more likely to be married before the age of 18, she stays home, has children at an early age, and the cycle of exclusion that keeps girls disengaged from leadership continues. CCF is championing girls’ education to give them options for brighter futures.

accessible rural healthcare

A Human Right

Between the rugged geography of Nepal and cultural taboos, access to and awareness around healthcare are a challenge. CCF’s current efforts in healthcare are two-fold: helping to fund and support rural access to healthcare and educating women, girls (and beyond) about menstrual health.
