Paying It Forward

Once a Little Sister, Always a Little Sister

Little Sisters sponsoring Little Sisters is one of our proudest accomplishments!  Once Little Sisters graduate and become financially stable, they are encouraged to support the education of a younger Little Sister. We are incredibly proud of these alumni and supporters as they champion the efforts of girls in Nepal on their paths to becoming educated and empowered young women. Their support makes a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of Little Sisters for generations to come.
