Books for Nepal
Rural Education and Development, Inc.
Nepal’s caste society—with a powerful patriarchal tradition—fosters gender disparity from early childhood. Women of all ages have been disadvantaged economically and educationally, and their illiteracy rate is significantly higher than that of men, especially in rural areas. Literature and informational materials designed for women are in short supply.
Join READ Global in its quest to change the world—one country, one village, one individual at a time. The self-supporting library community centers created by READ offer a women’s literature section and provide a supportive environment for the women’s associations and other women-only activities that encourage female empowerment. Your contribution will provide new literature and educational materials for women anxious to learn. Your gift of women’s literature will be provided by READ Global.
