Strength TogetHER provides safe space to share personal stories and experience which bring change in attitudes and lives. Girls get to explore and express themselves which helps to unburden themselves and create new meaning.
Girls discuss their issues and come up with solutions that group members can support each other with. They learn to speak up and share their stories to the group which is relatable to almost all girls. They are empowered by the story they share and learn new lessons after every session they attend.
Strength TogetHER has already provided its session to 19 cohorts all around Nepal virtually. Cohort 17 has been running physically at Mahendra Bhawan school. Similarly, it has expanded to Jumla in partnership with Zonta Club of Kathmandu. These sessions have been life changing experiences for many girls.
As Rezina, Strength TogetHER member, put it “Strength TogetHER has helped me discover and develop inherent strength to grow healthy and independent, ensuring all the girls have the opportunities to express ideas and feelings that bring about personal development and systematic change.”
