Secondary education is essential for adolescent girls to prepare themselves for healthy, safe and productive transitions to adulthood. However, many adolescent girls in Nepal are not in school or receiving a quality, relevant education to become healthy, productive and empowered adults for positive social, economic, and political change.

Power to the People Nepal recently conducted Feasibility Study of the proposed pilot project to promote adolescent girls' secondary education in two of the VDCs of Nuwakot District (Shikherbesi & Ghyangphedi).
