Volunteer Opportunity description


VIN Irecognises education as essential to empowerment. Yet women in Nepali society continue to face social and cultural barriers to it. 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 or intern, join us to learn more about the barriers facing Nepali women and help to remove them.

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.
