Project Report | Mar 26, 2020
Your support changes lives: Thank You!

By Eimi Olson | Project Leader

24-year-old "Suresh" lives in the mountains in a remote village east of Kathmandu. His two sisters were married years ago, and his father passed away in 2018 – leaving Suresh and his mother with no income to support them.

Though Suresh did well in school and passed his major examinations, he was reluctant to continue his academic studies given the high unemployment rate for college-educated youth in Nepal. More importantly, however, he couldn’t leave his mother alone at home.

Suresh enrolled in one of NYF’s Vocational Training programs nearby and began taking electrical training classes. He studied hard for three months, and successfully completed his training in December of 2019.

Suresh now works under a private contractor installing electrical wires inside homes, and earns more than enough to support himself and his mother.  Suresh hopes to advance his electrical skills in the future – but in the meantime, is so thankful for what he has already learned.

Thank you for helping young adults like Suresh lead independent and dignified lives!
