Transforming lives through the power of education
The most effective way to help poor girls and their mothers lift themselves from deep-rooted poverty in Nepal is by providing access to education.
HIO's family-centric educational sponsorship program empowers poor girls and their mothers living in inner-city Kathmandu. By encouraging girls to remain in school, HIO helps them avoid child marriage, teen pregnancy, and low wage, menial jobs. We provide a hand up, not a hand out, to change the face of poverty for vulnerable people, one girl, one mother at a time.
