Empowering oppressed women in Nepal
Lydia Vocational Training Centre transforms underprivileged women into confident entrepreneurs. One graduate from the 2012 class, Sara Kumal, used her education and a small business loan to start a cosmetic and tailoring shop that provides enough income to support her family and her parents!
When the pandemic hit, she had generated enough savings to keep the shop running until her district was locked down, at which point her business instinct led her to move her supplies to her sister’s shop, in a region that was not restricted. She then wisely invested her savings and launched a small goat farm. Her goal is to keep generating income from the goats, and then to reopen her dream shop when the pandemic is over.
Sara also now serves as a leader in her local community, teaching small school children every Saturday and helping the local church pastor in leading house fellowships. Sara’s story is a beautiful example of empowerment and hope in a culture where women face significant discrimination and child marriage.
If you’re looking for a way to support women this International Women’s Day, please consider the Lydia Vocational Training Centre, which equips women with spiritual knowledge, health education, vocational training, plus awareness training in domestic violence, HIV/AIDS, and drug addiction.
