Empowering Adolescent Girls and Young Women through the Provision of Comprehensive Sexuality Education and a Safe Learning Environment in Nepal
PDF File Size: 553 KB | Download   
Nepal has nearly achieved universal enrolment in primary education and has also made significant improvements in gender parity in primary and secondary education. However,
many challenges persist for young women and adolescent girls in terms of access, participation and completion of good quality education. Female students tend to drop out of school as they reach higher grades.

In many instances, education systems and plans are not gender-responsive and do not take into consideration girls’ and women’s particular needs. But even if there are provisions within the education sector to ensure universal access to all, social/cultural values tend to override such provisions. Among the many socio-cultural, economic and other factors preventing adolescent girls and young women from accessing education are, for example, child marriage and early pregnancy, gender-based violence, lack of knowledge or provision of proper hygiene facilities such as WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene).
