Kapilvastu, February 1, 2018: HE Peter Budd, Australia’s Ambassador to Nepal, visited Shree Purna Keshar Secondary School at Thulo Anandnagar, Kapilvastu to observe 3-day workshop on Entrepreneurship and Women Empowerment for the girl students of Grade 8, 9 and 10.
The workshop, jointly organized by Anurodh Nepal, Glocal After School, and with the support of AusAID aims to promote girl empowerment and develop their entrepreneurial mindset. The ambassador shared his ideas and knowledge about entrepreneurship and women empowerment with the students participating in the training. He shared, “there are many girls who have done exemplary works in their own initiation. Training like this will help to foster the young minds and inspire them to do something on their own.”
The project is initiated to enhance the qualities and capabilities of girls and to produce more self-competent and better entrepreneurs through different engaging activities. As many as 250 girls students from 3 Terai-districts from western Nepal i.e Kapilvastu, Rupandehi and Nawalparasi will be facilitated from this. As the workshop is related to entrepreneurship, self-competence and empowerment, the session conveys the ideas, information’s, techniques and tactics about entrepreneurial mindset, ideal implementation and self-competence. Similarly, local entrepreneurs are also invited to share their entrepreneurial experience, their initiation, struggle and success with the students. As the workshop is designed for the teenage girls from 13-17 years, it will help them to realize the implementation of ideas from the early age.
According to the organizer, Entrepreneurs Club will be formed in each school after the training is over. The clubs will be encouraged to carry out any works with their own ideas. The works can be done within the school premises or in their respective societies but the projects should reflect their creativity, ideas and innovation.
The project was incepted on 28 January, 2018 and will be covering 10 schools.
