A Happy New Year for The Little Sisters Fund
The Little Sisters Fund helps economically disadvantaged Nepalese girls to become empowered leaders. Through education and community support, we aim to contribute to the development of a more equitable and prosperous world. All children deserve the right to education, regardless of the basis of gender. With the Little Sisters Fund, 98% of Little Sisters continue in the program and with their studies every year. To compare, only 56% of poor rural girls complete primary school, and just over 20% complete grades 9 and 10.
The Little Sisters Fund is filled with gratitude for the opportunity of the future, of 2017. Continuing to support over two thousand Little Sisters, they are extraordinarily grateful for the chance to continue letting their lives flourish. They show dedication and compassion every day.
The gratitude they show on a daily basis inspires us to work even harder. Each Little Sister’s education is fully funded through twelfth grade and that they will soar into college and their adult life after they graduate from our program.
Happy 2017 from the Little Sisters Fund. Hopefully it is filled with the same compassion, dedication, and gratitude lived out by the Little Sisters every day.
