Woman Empowerment Program in Nepal

Nepal is a small, beautiful and patriarchal country and predominated by male in all major roles in the society. On the other hand, women have been treated as a factory of producing children and limited them only into household chore. Actually, they have no freedom in the society and education status of woman in Nepal is very low. Nepal is the poorest country and listed into third world country. In Nepal female have no access to education because of conservative social structure. For example, female should not be educated and keep them only in household activities. Moreover, some societies still wouldn’t see positively if girls go to school. As a result, woman has no accessibility to get any job such as government and private. As consequences, ultimately they should fully depend on their Woman Empowerment Program family and husband in terms of finance. By all above mentioned truth which is existed in our Nepali society would excite us to help them by giving some sort of non formal education and income generating as well as awareness building training related to women through volunteering service. We feel that providing education and training to them would increase their education level and uplift their living standard. In addition the concept of society would change gradually. Finally, they shouldn’t rely on their husband and woman in terms of money and can get freedom in family and society too.
