Global Family Nepal uses the Bhitri Sundarta curriculum in rural and urban club settings, which consists of foundational lessons designed to build a sense of community and friendship amongst young girls and strengthen self-image, social skills, and healthy habits. Club activities include children advocating for their peers, girls’ clubs that build self-work, women cooperating to keep girls in school, and community leaders upholding children’s rights. Other clubs aim to intercept girls being trafficked or trapped in abuse and restore them back to their families or guide them to a restoration shelter.
Bhitri Sundarta consists of lessons around building character, overcoming challenges, growing up, influencing others well, and planning for the future. Meetings consist of foundational lessons designed to build a sense of community and friendship amongst young girls and strengthen self-image, social skills and healthy habits. Each meeting is composed of a lesson, discussion, activities and a sample journal prompt for girls to record their thoughts. The lessons are adaptable to different age groups, religious affiliations and educational systems.
Meetings that address positive thinking are designed to help girls discover healthy ways of dealing with stress and difficult situations. Those that address facing obstacles and enduring hardship, on the other hand, are meant to allow a space where girls can identify and tackle the challenges they face, whether at home, school or in their communities.
