IFPD collaborates with Business and Professional Women Nepal (BPWN) to develop projects targeted at poverty reduction and women empowerment.
There is a significant local market for these activities, and the concept of cooperatives is very successful in Nepal. The goal of the projects is not only to provide women with a means to improve their living conditions and perspectives for the future but also to prevent them from falling into the clutches of prostitution networks.
Training and equipment for the creation of microbusinesses/cooperatives are provided by the projects and targeted at four types of activities:
- EGoat husbandry
- EOrganic millet farming
Launched in: 2016
Location: Kathmandu, Nepal
Local Partner: Business and Professional Women Nepal
