Literacy and Livelihoods for 445 Women in Nepal



This project will run literacy classes for 156 women and activities for a total of 445 people, as a foundation for opening businesses, managing their own finances and forming community groups.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Women who speak minority languages face many levels of exclusion in Nepal. Many did not attend school or were forced to drop out to take care of younger brothers and sisters and work in the fields. If they were in school, unless they could speak Nepali they were unlikely to learn to read, write, or understand math. Illiteracy deprives women access to information that would help them be better mothers, run family based businesses or take part in community discussions and decisions.

How will this project solve this problem?

LDC will run livelihoods training and literacy classes in the local language and Nepali. Materials will be on topics relevant to students' lives, such as maternal and family health, agriculture and the political system.

Potential Long Term Impact

Four hundred forty five women in rural communities in Nepal will lead improved lives through literacy and livelihoods training.
