Providing education for girls from the rural areas is of utmost importance. The Village Association of Imil together with “Education for All” Association have built a boarding house at Asni to allow the girls to continue with their education beyond the primary level. Girls often drop out of school as either the colleges are too far from their homes or their parents can’t afford them, nor have the confidence to send their girls away. Appropriate training for mountain guides, cooks and muleteers is being pursued. Tourism awareness is vital for the local communities.
