In march 2020 I will be volunteering for 3 weeks in Nepal supporting disadvantaged women. The program that I will be joining runs from a women's centre and aims to support women in learning English and other skills such as ICT.
Many Nepalese women receive a poor education and very few manage to gain employment. This project plays an important role in building women's self esteem and provides them with skills so that they can work towards getting some forms of paid work.
Supporting disadvantaged women and children has always been a passion of mine. I'm hoping my skills and knowledge will have a positive impact on the Nepalese community. I am also hoping to learn a lot myself by experiencing a completely different culture and way of life. If you would like to support me on my journey it would be greatly appreciated. Also if you have any recommendations for language books that would be appreciated.
