About This Project

Youth-focused Integrated Vocational Skills Training and Empowerment

This one-year project that started in August 2022 was designed to support young people from communities in Kaski, Nawalparasi and Parbat districts which have been affected by natural disasters or the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic to become economically active and improve family income.

Prioritising those in greatest need, this project provided support and resources to 155 individuals and indirectly benefited 741 family members. Trainees received vocational and entrepreneurship training, as well as receiving mentorship throughout the project duration.

71% of trainees were economically active by the end of the project, and 50% of trainees reported more than a 30% increase in household income.
