The College is proud to support Edinburgh-based charity EMMS International’s ‘Every Girl Matters’ project. ‘Every Girl Matters’ aims to improve healthcare in rural Nepal and help young girls continue in education. You can donate here.

Chronic sickness in rural Nepal causes unnecessary pain and suffering and places a huge burden of care on young girls like Sunita, who left school after both her mother and father became ill and were unable to care for themselves.

The project is helping to extend quality palliative care and access to essential pain relief to 20,000 families in rural Nepal. With their loved ones well cared for, 1,646 young carers can return to school and enjoy the hope education brings for them and their communities.

The College is backing EMMS International’s project to give girls like Sunita a chance to fulfil their aspirations by returning to school, safe in the knowledge that her loved ones are receiving the care they need.
