Challenge

Youth unemployment and underemployment is an entrenched crisis in Nepal, standing in 2021 at a staggering 35%. But this is even more pronounced for women in Nepal. Due to systemic oppression, marginalization, and gender-based violence, women face many more challenges in obtaining opportunities for economic freedom and empowerment. Lots of women are left with limited choices for employment - many of which take place abroad, are unsafe, and highly exploitative.

Solution

This project matches women with the resources they need to achieve economic empowerment. Trade school scholarships are offered to those pursuing opportunities individually, and specialized courses at NYF's own vocational school are offered in fields like carpentry, industrial tailoring, agricultural and greenhouse farming, and more. Each course includes entrepreneurship skills training, counseling, and job placement support. We even offer start-up funds to help our graduates get started!

Long-Term Impact

Nepal's growing economy needs a skilled workforce. Careers in these sectors pay well above the country's minimum wage. Usually, starting salaries are enough to support an individual's entire family, including providing educational opportunities for their own children. This project, then, not only helps individual women to achieve economic freedom and empowerment, but also helps to break generational cycles of poverty - all while strengthening Nepal's economy at the same time.
