Together with Terre des Hommes in 2017, we developed an innovative digital training program with the aim to end modern slavery and child labor in Nepal. Eventually leading to a better future for themselves and their families. Next to that, they are also taught how to manage their finances and trained on becoming a tailor at studio Nepal.
At studio Nepal, we train (mostly young and vulnerable) women on the job, which brings stability and rhythm in families and the possibilities for them to offer education to children of the employees and provide homework assistance and compensation for medical expenses for children and the elderly. We improve the lives and opportunities of many, many young people and their families. But we want more!
We started a cooperation with Terre des Hommes because they are specialized in training vulnerable young women. As a result, we can upscale our activities and offer vulnerable young people in Nepal a job and access to information. We aim to structurally educate 1,000 people on a professional level and in life skills. We will do so by teaching them how to tailor and read, manage their financial situation and personal hygiene. In the future, this program will also be available in neighboring countries such as Bangladesh.
