Breaking the Bonds is a project within Street Child. Its aim is to support the most vulnerable members of the Musahar Caste (untouchables) in a remote region in Nepal; they are a politically marginalized, economically exploited and socially excluded group. Musahar girls are 100% out of school after age of 10, owing to their untouchable status.
The aim of the IPS project is to give vital social support to 600 Musahar girls.IPS raised the necessary funds for this project thanks to its kind and generous supporters, said Kanthi S Beck, President/Founder of IPS. The IPS support will help these vulnerable women and girls and give them a chance to learn basic literacy and numeracy so they can break free from bonded labour, (modern day slavery).
Attached information about our fundraiser on behalf of Street Child. As IPS of Sweden supported Nepal, also attached a Field report of the Nepal project so you get an idea of what cause IPS of Sweden are supporting.
The project is “Breaking the bonds”, Empowering the most Marginalised group of people in Nepal, those belonging to the Musahar caste.
(support to train 20 Social workers who then deliver vital social support for 600 vulnerable girls).
