At Mitini Nepal, we give as many scholarships to study to LBT individuals as possible. Education will increase opportunities for members of our community, which is currently under-educated, mostly due to family abandonment, general societal discouragement to participate in the mainstream, and a plethora of unusual challenges faced due to intersecting forces of discrimination. When Mitini Nepal provides ounselling, we usually recommend that community members seek formal education as part of our main program set, and when possible Mitini Nepal will pay for the education, although funds are only intermittently available.
Through your donations to the Mitini Nepal Scholarship Fund, we are able to pay the education fees for individuals who may not have the chance to seek higher than grade 10 education through public school, or who have dropped out and want to continue adult education. We provide support if an individual is interested in finishing high-school education, in pursuing a skilled technical vocation, or in attending university – individuals are truely listened to and are helped on case by case basis.
Your donation can help empower LBT individuals in Nepal to reach their fullest potential. Please consider donating online or in person at our office in Baluwatar, Kathmandu.
Due to excessive paperwork for small amounts, suggested online donation amount is minimum 1000 Nepali Rupees (10USD). We appreciate smaller amounts to be given in person at our office or at a Mitini Nepal attended or sponsored event.
