Beyond the Four Walls (B4W) provides Nepali girls and young women with entrepreneurship and technology training to become change agents within a society where girls are at risk due to forced marriage, trafficking, abuse and indentured servitude. We are leveraging this first generation of literate women to be the beacons for ongoing advancement and hope in a country where women and girls are treated as property with an absence of free will.
