Similarly, Deputy Chief Executive Officer Kamal Panthi and Chief Marketing Officer Prashantraj Dhamala provided training in the Damauli, Lamjung, and Gorkha programs.
All of these one-month programs were designed to train women who are disadvantaged and have few opportunities in society, encourage them to be self-employed, and employ them in income-generating jobs.
The first phase’s scheduled training program has been completed. Self-employment is practiced by over 700 women. The program’s second phase will take place during the months of Falgun and Chaitra.
The goal of the second phase is to encourage 1000 women to work for themselves and earn a regular income. We would like to inform you that more programs will be held within Chaitra to provide motivation and interaction with women across the country in order to improve the effectiveness of the self-employment and income generation program.
