Only a mere 28 percent of girls in Nepal are literate, and less than three out of ten can read. Without essential skills, these girls risk falling victim to prostitution rings and child trafficking networks. Others are forced to live on the streets. Education is the best hope these girls have of a normal life - a life of independence and true freedom. For more than a decade, Little Sisters Fund has been giving young and underprivileged women in Nepal, a glimmer of hope through scholarships. With beautifully evocative photographs and intimate essays, photographers Debby Ng and Edwin Koo tell the heart-warming and inspiring stories of these young women - Nepal's hope for a better future.
