Create Jobs: Teach 1000 Women to Drive Taxi, Nepal
 
Teach women to drive professionally and earn a good living. The goal of this project is to teach 1000 women how to drive taxis. The program will take 3 months to complete and we have job opportunities already lined up for those who pass the driving tests. Our partner in Nepal, Laxmi Pratisthan will conduct the training program. They have a great deal of experience in the management of women's skill training programs. project reportread updates from the field
Slums to Schools, creating success in Kathmandu
 
On the banks of the heavily polluted Bagmati river there is a slum, with tin shanty "homes' having no toilets, floors, heat or lights. Everyday, 140 children walk from this slum to Koseli School where they bathe, brush teeth, change into clean school uniforms, have a hearty breakfast and begin to study. It's a place of miracles, there's no other way to state it. It costs just over $1.00 a day to feed, educate and provide clothing for these kids, an incredibly cheap cost. project reportread updates from the field

Teach English for Jobs Growth
 
46% of Nepalis don't have jobs. Half of all Nepal households have one family living and working out of the country, mostly in the Gulf region. 2.1 million Nepalis have left the country for employment. These figures can be reversed, Nepal does not need to suffer a "brain drain" nor have half of it's families split apart. Next door neighbor India has developed a thriving trade and created hundreds of thousands of jobs buy capitalizing on India's English language abilities. Nepal can do the same. project reportread updates from the field
