Girls in Nepal need your help to learn and express themselves using modern technologies!

Modern technology enables us to connect with each other and the world around us in new and innovative ways. However, women and girls from impoverished and marginalized backgrounds are often not given the same technological opportunities. The ability to benefit from modern technology is not just important but critical in elevating women's participation in all sectors of society. Young girls who do not have access to such tools because of abject poverty will be left behind as the world technologically advances. Women need to be a part of the technological revolution as it now an indispensable part of our education, employment, politics, and creativity.

Unfortunately many women, like the ones in Katmandu, Nepal simply do not have access to the necessary equipment. VOW Media and Girls' Voices are starting a media tech center in Katmandu which will be a safe space for youth and women to familiarize themselves with modern technology. The media tech center will be created with a focus on marginalized people who are ignored by the conventional education and social systems in the area. The primary goal will be to provide quality care and technological education for young girls that can eventually change their lives by creating opportunities, knowledge and employment skills. It will ensure a better quality of education including participation in media/tech training, rights awareness, health and sexuality training and more. The media tech center will also allow the women to express themselves through various art forms on a regular basis, teaching the girls about the power of digital technology and storytelling.

These girls need your help! Your donation will go towards purchasing textbooks, cameras, and computers for the VOW Media's new technology center in Nepal.


About Girls' Voices
Girls' Voices is a Signature Program of GreaterGood.org intended to raise funds for girls' secondary education through media made by girls. Our goal is for girls around the world to connect to their voice, their dreams for their education, and use the power of digital media to create images, stories, and visual metaphors that can communicate their strength and potential to the world. The intention of this project is to empower girls to utilize videography to raise scholarship funds to remove financial barriers to completing secondary education.
