Women Empowerment Project

Women are traditionally not educated and kept illiterate, increasing their financial dependency and keeping them unaware of their basic human rights in Nepal. A number of laws also discriminate against women’s citizenship, inheritance rights, divorce rights, and even by meting out minimal to no punishment against their physical or sexual abusers.

The recent conflict has only added to the problem, causing many fathers and husbands (on whom women were dependent) to be killed or disappeared and making it more difficult for women to seek justice and enforcement of the few protections they do have under the law.

Women and girls are discriminated against both socially and legally in Nepal. Socially and traditionally especially in remote rural areas, child labor (especially of girls), domestic abuse, and in some remote areas even sexual exploitation norms. The Everest Foundation Nepal has established a Women’s center where 35 women attend the program on a regular basis.

What programs are currently in place?

Teaching of and Computer knowledge to the women is one of the most effective program taking place at the Center for short term volunteers from overseas. Volunteers can create and deliver comprehensive Spoken English and Computer lesson, though EFN has provided several reference books. The classes are divided into three categories- Basic, Intermediate and Advanced.

Skill training programs using local resources and local materials which contribute to sustainable resource use and economic development of the community also take place at the center. Examples of skill training programs offered include sewing, weaving methods, tailoring, beautician training, paper making, retail shop running, animal-raising, toy-making, and other small business products training or marketing.
