Women Empowerment - 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 are socially accepted norms. The Volunteer Society Nepal has established a Women’s center where 35 women attend the program on a regular basis.


Who would I teach and when?

You will be teaching disadvantaged young and elderly Nepalese ladies during the day time.

What programs are currently in place?

The teaching of English language and Computer knowledge to the women is one of the most effective programs taking place at the Center for short term volunteers from overseas. Volunteers can create and deliver comprehensive Spoken English and Computer lessons, though VSN 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 product training or marketing. Currently, a well trained Nepali trainer is providing full time cutting & sewing training to the women at the center.

As a volunteer, you may:

  • Teach Basic English reading and writing skills
  • Teach them mathematics and accounting skills
  • Teach them basic computer education
  • Hold workshops, classes, training to interact about women right and health issues
  • Organize fun activities
  • Plan and implement tour and recreational program
  • Organize games
  • Introduce new products and training programs.
  • Organize women’s health check up program

Mission Statement

Volunteer Society Nepal is founded on a dream. That brave and generous volunteers from across all backgrounds from Nepal and abroad could work together.

Description

At the height of the conflict in Nepal in 2004 we gathered a team of Nepalese development workers. We also invited foreign social activists and foreign volunteers to come and help. Together we combat the shortages in education, healthcare and women’s rights. We believe we can do this quicker and more efficiently than the existing international organizations. Our work has taken on a new dimension following the devastation of the 2015 earthquake. We have since doubled our efforts to sustain and increase our humanitarian projects.
