Education, Rights and Life Skills

Program Fees Education Rights and Life Sk

Introduction:  Poverty is pervasive in Nepal’s rural communities and girl children are needed to help with household chores, rather than go to school.  A perceived burden, they are then married early, acquiring a new home to care for.  The result; women from impoverished, rural communities gain a low level of education, too low to enable them to receive further education or enter skilled jobs.

VIN established the Education, Rights and Life Skills project to give women in marginalised communities the knowledge, skills and self-confidence necessary to participate in a successful community. Volunteer and intern, join us to learn more about the barriers facing Nepali women and help to remove them.

VIN operates the Education, Rights and Life Skills program to give women in marginalised communities the knowledge, skills and self-confidence necessary to participate in a successful community. We provide basic education, life skills training, knowledge on health and domestic issues and inform women of their rights.  We have given literacy classes and practical training to over 500 women in the community.  We are looking forward to implementing this work as part of the women’s empowerment program, in Okhaldhunga, our new focus community.

During the last five years VIN has worked hard to provide the women of the Jitpur Phedi community with the knowledge and training they need to participate effectively in the community and help to bring about change.

VIN has now established 65 women’s groups across the community; the number was 19 in 2009.  The groups are designed to ensure that the women have a support network that is sustainable and can operate independently of VIN.  The women are eager to learn to enable them to establish independence for themselves and for their children.
