Women Empowerment: Account Class & Maths Lessons in Kavresthali

Published on:

In Nepal, some Women have less basic education and less opportunity to empower social and economic environment. In fact men occupy most of the works with responsibility. Most of women have unskilled jobs as vendors in small shops, sell fruit and vegetables in markets or are farmers. For others, they are housewives and unemployed.

That’s why VIN contributes to educate women on their right to develop a new generation with more equality. This goes through a development of women’s education. This leads to their independence so nowadays they are able to improve their mathematics skills and improve their accountancy knowledge.

 Estelle, a volunteer, teaches mathematics and accounting at two women’s communities in Kavresthali.

The first of the communities is made up of two women who have created a business of handmade jewelry. These women are also member of the entrepreneurship program developed by VIN. They want to improve their mathematics and accountancy knowledges, in order to grow up their business and be able to manage their profits and losses in an autonomous way. They also want to develop financial management skills.

The second community is made up of six women who are almost all housewives. They want to deepen their knowledge in mathematics and mental calculations. Forward, they also want to learn the basics of accounting in order to create their own business.

Estelle has the responsibility to accompany these women. On the one hand, women have been sensitized to the importance of accounting as much in everyday life as in the management of their businesses. On the other hand, women had a definition of accounting, the description of the concept of business, and the presentation of the different accounting documents for recording financial transactions.

In parallel, Estelle gives mathematic lessons. The class consist of reviewing the basics of calculation (additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions). Women were also able to learn how to use a calculator.

It is the opportunity for their women to be more educated and in fact to have more chance to develop their initiatives. With the help of the volunteers from VIN the women get a chance to lead their knowledge so this raises the probability of a better future for the women in Nepal.
