WFN is continuously working to find ways to empower women so they can take their true place in society.
In Nepal, many women never went to school, therefore can barely read and write and others do have a high school diploma but never received a practical training of any kind. Consequently they only can find low paying jobs like cleaning, doing house chores for another, knitting, in short work that requires no specific skills. Their long hours doesn’t even generate respect nor a decent salary and as a result women have no self esteem.
After many meeting and discussions on this issue, a pilot project was born.
