Women empowerment volunteer program in Nepal for all those passionate people who are enthusiastic to travel to this Himalayan residence and contribute towards the lives of underprivileged women. As a volunteer for the women empowerment volunteer program, you will mostly be working with young women and homemakers living in a village close to the capital city. In the women empowerment volunteer program, you will have the option to choose - whether you wish to work with the young adults ( high school and college students) or with the homemakers.

Women empowerment volunteer program work will vary accordingly. If you choose to work with the homemakers, you will mostly be volunteering with married women who do not speak any English so a pre-school level of teaching is sufficient, which means volunteers from non-English speaking countries who can communicate in decent English can also take part. They will need to teach the alphabet, names of things and basic greetings, etc. If you help these women learn how to communicate in English, they would probably get to have a better life by earning a few extra bucks. You can teach them basic communication like 'Hello', 'How are you?' etc. as well as reading and writing in English.

Nepalese women are dependent on men for their welfare and face discrimination and high levels of violence against them. Many are preyed upon by organized trafficking groups who kidnap or deceive girls who are then sold for sex across Asia. Those who are rescued suffer discrimination and physical and psychological effects. Love Volunteer’s wonderful partner agency seeks to improve the quality of life of women living in underprivileged, rural communities where they provide them with economic tools, a basic education, improved health and a life without violence. Any volunteer who aims to help women in need will find this an extremely worthy project to be part of.

Women Empowerment Volunteer Highlights:
  • Provide basic English and math education to the underprivileged women living in the rural areas around Kathmandu
  • Help them to communicate in English
  • Provide essential teaching and support to vulnerable girls and women, including victims of female trafficking
  • Improve the future prospects of young women and girls who have been discriminated against
  • Give impoverished women and girls a quality education, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enhance women’s job prospects and cultural understanding
  • Teach basic life skills, workshops and income-generating methods
