WPPC Nepal Foundation supports vocational programs that help victims of trafficking, most notably programs operated by the Women's Prevention and Protection Center of Hetauda, Nepal. The WPPC Nepal Foundation provides support to the Women's Prevention and Protection Center through our grant making process
Vocational training and life skills help survivors support themselves and move toward normal life in the society. WPPC Nepal Foundation has helped fund programs such as sewing, knitting and beading. The duration of each course is 4 to 6 months. After graduating from the training, resources help girls connect with local businesses to find employment or to establish their own small shop or business.
Income Generating Program:
Even though they are trained and skilled, finding employment is almost impossible for this population where the unemployment rate in Nepal is 47%. As a result of unemployment they are re-trafficked or involved in prostitution.
WPPC Nepal Foundation supports programs that will help sustain various programs that help survivors. Survivors produce hand beaded exotic scarves, shawls, gift bags and other hand crafted items. WPPC Nepal Foundation helps them put together programs to generate income from their products. Nari Alliance, a Seattle, U.S.A. based social venture business is working towards the marketing of their products to continue to provide jobs for them in Nepal. You can visit Nari Alliance website (www.narialliance.com) and support them by buying their products.
