Supporting the Education of Marginalised Girls in Kailali (STEM) 1) Training marginalised girls to complete a full cycle of education. These girls provide academic and emotional support to some of the most marginalised girls, or ‘Little Sisters’, by ‘Big Sisters’, who mentor the girls through their schooling and act as positive role models. International volunteers train and support the Big Sisters, and work with them to mobilise commitment in communities and resources for the continuation of the scheme. 2) Providing nine-month "Bridge Courses" (preparatory classes and school enrolment support) to girls who have never been to school or who dropped out in Grades 1 to 3 and learning support classes to low performing girls to help keep them in school 3) Mentoring the Big Sisters through male and female ‘adult champions’ from the local community facilitates negotiations with parents, adding credibility to the scheme. 4) Establishing gender-friendly school environments in schools that the projects’ marginalised girls attend.
