About Global Family

Global Family Care Network is a non-profit organization that protects at-risk children in many of the world’s most desperate communities. We believe that every child is valuable to God and needs protection. Every child is at risk of abuse and exploitation in one-way or other, in particular a girl child. According to CWIN almost 40 per cent of survivors of child sexual abuse and rape are girls below 18 years. Most of them are abused at home, in educational institutions, work places or any given place. They are vulnerable in all these places.


Bhitri Sundarta (BS) is a tool developed by Global Family that focuses upon protecting young girls and preventing girl child trafficking and sexual abuse. The goal of the curriculum is to provide young girls with the tools and knowledge to protect themselves, support communities to turn to and the realization of their potential. This curriculum 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.

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.


The curriculum aims to not only empower the girls to go out into the world and become leaders, but to excite them about what they can do, who they can be and what kind of role model they can grow to be! The potential to make a positive impact upon families, schools and communities is real and possible through the inner beauty that each one of these girls possesses.

The model for club development was established in response to the environmental and individual risk factors of child trafficking and abuse. Clubs are founded and run by community volunteers, who may be youth or mentors from the surrounding area. Clubs follow a curriculum and often meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis in local community centers, public spaces, schools, or alongside partner organizations. 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.


The Empower curriculum is an adaptation of Bhitri Sundarta (meaning ‘inner beauty’ in Nepali), a collection of lessons created to teach girls in Nepal between the ages of eight and fifteen about the dangers of child trafficking and sexual abuse. This version of the curriculum has been modified to reach girls in the United States.

Our Founding Club

We founded the first Bhitri Sundarta club in Kathmandu in June 2010. The girls of this first club inspired many of the games and activities included here, and chose pink, burgundy and green as their colors. In the process of leading these girls through the meetings and assessing how they learned and responded to the concepts, we were able to create lessons and meeting plans that are fun, adaptable and meaningful for young girls.

Project Highlight

Girls Choice Foundation


The Thali Miniland School club in Kathmandu, Nepal is a student led club that formed just after the 2015 earthquake. Their mission is to promote girl child rights and support and protect each other from trafficking and abuse in Kathmandu, Nepal. The girl students (and few boys who are invited to join) took action when faced with harassment at school. They meet weekly to discuss matters and listen to one another, work though the "Bhitri Sundarta" (Inner Beauty) curriculum, and raise funds for needy children in their community. These girls have gained confidence and support one another with the encouragement of their parents and school principal. Now, they are training girls from a nearby school to start their own club! The club spreads awareness of trafficking and abuse, and now these children are teaching their peers about their rights and encouraging each other to stay in school… It seems the Girls’ Choice Foundation can do just about anything!


  • Develop child-friendly messaging on issues such as trafficking, child rights, and abuse
