Opportunity to women from Jewelry training

Published on: 23/05/2019

VIN’s women’s empowerment program seeks to improve the quality of life of women living in the rural communities where we run projects by providing them with economic tools like basic education, improved health and life without violence. Women empowerment is defined as the process by which women take control and ownership of their lives through expansion of their choices. In May, VIN has organized “Crystal and Beads Jewelry Making Training” for 12 women of Kavresthali community, Thumka. It is 15 days program which is held in Tarkeshwar Municipality-2,  Kavarasthali ,Thumka. The main objectives are to use free time for income generating activities to create employment opportunities for the local women and to encourage women to be self dependent  by learning skills.

The program was started with the introduction of the organization, objectives of training, process of training and orientation on entrepreneurship skills and ideas of business plan etc. They were taught different types of Crystal and beads Jewelry making processes. And also taught about Crystal and beads jewelry like; necklace, brass let, ear top, bangles, etc. And also we discussed about regular work like co-ordination with shopkeeper of local market in Thamel market and Asan market for selling their product. They were facilitated to make business plan of jewelry by international volunteer Wendy Mcelvain from USA. According to her “Today is the day, 12 women pledged to one another to start a business. Today is the day they committed to selling their dazzling jewelry at 10 festivals in the next two months. Today 12 women entrusted each other to better their lives, and to generate a sustainable income. Today 12 women became motivated and empowered. Today, they started a business, and their future began! And that’s something to celebrate”

After learning they started the job of necklace jewelry making of broker.  So they are happy from training because they got the chance of both learning and earning.
