It is with great pleasure that we present you with our new project progress report.
Journey Home Foundation (JHF) under the initiative of of promoting gender equality and women empowerment has been providing various kinds of training opportunities to girls as requested by them.
Although the risk of Corona virus has been reeling all over, Nepal has relaxed its lockdown and restriction formalities. With this, the normal lives have been resumed to some extent. But tourism in Nepal has been hardest hit. Tourism in Nepal is mostly international based but with Covid - 19 that has not been possible. But, domestic tourism has seen quite a boom in Nepal in current context as many places has seen quite a huge influx of domestic tourists compared to minimal number in previous years.
With this in mind, JHF Nepal initiated a training camp where people, especially women, were provided basic cooking training and hospitality knowledge ( about home-stay). This training is the first training conducted by JHF since the covid-19 and lockdown in Nepal. This training was organized in cooperation in the local government and JHF. After this training, the participants will head back to their respective villages and start their own small venture in contributing in local tourism as well as domestic tourism.
Also, with the global pandemic of Corona virus affecting the world, we would urge everyone to stay safe and practice social distancing to avoid the spread of this deadly disease.
