Issues such as the marriage of girls before age 12, parents’ reluctance to have their girls in school with boys after puberty, the dowry system, and restriction of women’s decision-making all play a role in suppressing the rights and potential of women in the region.</p> <p>Karuna Girls’ School is working to change these statistics by <strong>providing education for girls</strong> from grades 6–12, as well as vocational training for underprivileged girls and women in Lumbini. Since this is an all-girls school, parents are more willing to allow their daughters to attend, and Karuna Girls’ School has gained some popularity in the region. During the course of 2016, the school grew from serving 150 students to <strong>186 students</strong>.</p> <p>RMF’s current support to the school is in constructing a <strong>4-classroom building</strong> and handing it over to Karuna Girls’ School. This is a step in helping the school to meet its long-term goal of accommodating 500 students.</p> Gaurav Pradhan and Deanna Boulard info@realmedicinefoundation.org Free Health Camps for Cold Affected Communities: January 2018 http://realmedicinefoundation.org/initiative-reports/nepal/archives/2018/01/18/free-health-camps-for-cold-affected-communities-january-2018/ 2018-08-09T18:34:31-07:00 2018-01-18T18:30:00-08:00 [ Read more...]]]> Ganesh Shrestha and Deanna Boulard info@realmedicinefoundation.org 10 New ICU Beds Donated to Hospital: January 2018 http://realmedicinefoundation.org/initiative-reports/nepal/archives/2018/01/16/10-new-hospital-beds-donated-to-hospital-january-2018/ 2018-01-16T17:42:50-08:00 2018-01-16T17:00:00-08:00 [ Read more...]]]> <p>Shortly after the April 2015 earthquake, Real Medicine Foundation (<span class="caps">RMF</span>) started its support of Kanti Children’s Hospital by donating more than <strong>$400,000 worth of medicines, medical supplies, and laboratory supplies</strong>. <span class="caps">RMF</span> continues to support a blood bank, lodging, food, transportation, medicines, laboratory services, and other necessities for needy patients and their families.
