Thank you for helping young adults like Sajita thrive

As one of five children, 23-year-old “Sajita” started working immediately after her high school graduation to help support her family of seven. Knowing she was capable of more than a low-paying retail job, Sajita reached out to NYF for career counseling. She enrolled in the 3-month electrical training course at Olgapuri Vocational School.

Having a female instructor, Mandira, made it a little easier to be the only woman among 20 students. After graduation, Sajita quickly found a job earning 15,000 NPR (Nepalese rupees) per month – well over the average per capita income of 9,800 NPR per month.

Not only is Sajita helping to support her siblings, but she’s also already thinking ahead to advanced training – and even hopes to one day run her own electrical shop in her village.

Your support helps bright and talented young adults like Sajita take charge of their futures and lead independent lives. Thank you!
