Coming from an impoverished family of eight who was struggling to survive, “Rani” was sold into indentured servitude at age 14.
She worked as a Kamlari for six years until she was finally rescued by NYF at age 20. Rani was recovering well, got married, and had two children.
While her young family was in good spirits, their financial situation was desperate, resulting in her husband’s migration to India to seek employment. Rani carried the overwhelming burden of raising her children alone without a reliable source of income.
Fortunately she learned about NYF’s vocational training program and applied for a 21-day Food Stall Management course. Now, Rani is the proud owner of two thriving businesses: a tea and snacks shop and an adjacent grocery shop. She is earning enough to support her entire family and saving for their future. Her husband returned from India and helps her with the businesses while their children attend a reputable local school. She says, “I am very grateful to Nepal Youth Foundation for helping me to stand on my own feet.”
Thanks to your support, graduates of NYF’s vocational training programs like Rani are earning as much as $4,000-$5,000 annually, a life-transforming impact in a country where 1 in 4 people live on less than $1 a day.
