In addition to our cooperation programs with the Swiss embassy, we have planned to set up a small training company for young women. In sewing courses, led by a qualified Sachham employee, young women learn the most important techniques to be able to sew simpler items of clothing, bags and pillows on their own. The aim is to build up an own label that can offer women a secure training and job.
The skills acquired are certified via the Swiss Embassy’s RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) program.
We are realizing this project with our cooperation partner in Kathmandu, the ‘Laxmi Pratisthan Foundation’. The activities are coordinated by Gianendra Mainali.
Further project ideas are emerging ... (see also Sachham cooperations)
Gianendra Mainali is responsible for coordinating the projects in Nepal
