VOCATIONAL EDUCATION & CAREER COUNSELLING (VECC)
Vocational education and counselling is severely lacking in Nepal, which has an unemployment rate of 46%.
Some sectors have a demand for skilled employees, but most young people lack the necessary training in these fields. Furthermore, with the devastating earthquakes that hit in 2015 and left vast areas of the country to be rebuilt, more skilled workers than ever are needed for Nepal to recover.
As part of our pioneering Olgapuri Children’s Village, we developed an on-site Vocational Training School.
We plan to offer vocational training in four trades: Maintenance: electrical/electronic training, plumbing, Carpentry /furniture making, Metalwork/welding and Care giving.
The Vocational School and Farm will train some 500 young adults annually.
Young people with jobs serve as role models in their communities. They are able to impact their family’s economic status and improve the family’s overall welfare.
VECC staff identifies the best training programme for the child’s chosen field, either at the Vocational Training School or elsewhere, pays for the cost of training and helps them to find employment following the completion of their course.
