Women Entrepreneurship Volunteer

Women Entrepreneurship Volunteer Project aims to support the women of marginalized communities to generate sustainable income through entrepreneurship development. Nepal is an under-developed country dived by cast, class, culture, religion and most importantly gender. Women in Nepal have faced decades of oppression and inequality which continues to persist in today’s date. Most of the women in Nepal do not withhold any property. They are illiterate and unaware about their rights as a woman. They have very limited or no control over their family’s finances. They spend all their lives within the four walls of their households cooking and cleaning for their family. Therefore, they lack the confidence and skills required for them to be independent and free.

 

WHAT WILL BE YOUR ROLE?

During your placement, you will be placed in one of the VIN host program locations Tarkeshwor, Nuwakot or Okhaldhunga depending upon your preferences and availability of project. Your major task is to educate women regarding the essence and importance of entrepreneurship. You will be providing them with basic skills necessary in due process and motivate them to be entrepreneurs in local level. You can facilitate trainings and workshops on agro-based enterprises, small scale business plans, account keeping etc. You will work as their mentor. As a Women Entrepreneurship Volunteer  you can also get involved in fund raising activities for the project.
