VSN Volunteers Painted the newly built women center
The Women Centre Nepal, Run by Volunteer Society Nepal, VSN in Pepsicola gets a refreshed look over the week thanks to Ben Hancox, Jos de Klein and Willemien de Klein, painting the interior and exterior of the house. Volunteer Society Nepal provided the paint and supplies.
Volunteer Society Nepal understands that empowering women (Womens Empowerment in Nepal) is an important step towards empowering families and communities, so our education program works to teach languages, mathematics, and practical skills to women in Kathmandu.
Due to a lack of awareness and access to quality education in Nepal, gender discrimination is a major problem that is fueled by long-held superstitious beliefs and political leaders’ decreased political vision. The socio-economic status of women in Nepal is very poor; the women are discriminated against in every aspect of society including health, education, participation, income generation, decision making, access to policy making, and human rights.
Volunteer Society Nepal established the women center in 2008. Since its inception, VSN has been focusing to empower the women from the local community. Volunteer Society Nepal regularly organizes:
- 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
- Fun activities
- Introduce new products and training programs.
- women’s health check up program
- Yoga Classes
Volunteer service abroad: a lifetime opportunity for mutual growth
We offer a wide range of volunteering opportunities in Nepal. Our Volunteering Opportunities in Nepal Program aims to assist the sustainable development of Nepali communities through projects aimed at children, youth and women. We place our volunteers in not only our own schools, orphanages and centers in Kathmandu, but also in other locations through local partner organizations across Nepal. Volunteering is for all ages, from high school students to retired teachers. According to your skills and length of stay we will create a program that suits you.
