Coding Training Provides Skills and Income Source Opportunity for Youth
Youth unemployment and underemployment across much of the developing world is extremely high. Nepal is one of the country similarly affected by youth unemployment and underemployment where labor frequently encompasses informal self-employment and small-scale agriculture. Helped by remittances, the proportion of the population falling below the national poverty line has declined in recent years from 31 percent in 2003-04 to 25 percent in 2011 (Central Bureau of Statistics 2011). One underlying factor of poverty in Nepal is the lack of employment opportunities, and a reliance on self-employment in the agriculture sector, which accounts for 61 percent of the total labor force (Nepal Living Standard Survey 2011). Faced with these prospects, young Nepalese are compelled to consider migrating overseas in search of better opportunities. While the unemployability problem facing the country is a widespread issue, GPYC works with youth who face even more
Empowering Youth : Leaders for Today and Tomorrow
An important component to GPYC work is empowering youth and giving them the tools succeed in both their personal and academic lives. In guiding and empowering youth, our regular workshops and projects engage young people in work that challenges them to develop skills, gain awareness, and participate in opportunities that are necessary for creating change both in their own lives and in their communities. Through the development of leadership skills, young people are empowered, supported, and encouraged to find and use their voice as a means of building a stronger community; helping them reach their full potential. Monthly leadership development sessions were held at Diamond College, Kathmandu Model College, Bhakti International Academy, Diamond School and Schems School. During each session, various leadership activities were conducted focusing on leadership development. Pair and small discussions , cooperative games, presentations, brainstorming, worksheet writing
Advocating for Gender Equality
In Nepal, women represent 50% of the countries population. However, due to socio cultural and political norms, women are often excluded from having an active role in society and thought to belong in the domestic sphere, taking care of the home and raising children. The demands of household chores and societal restriction cause many girls to drop out of school. Girls and women faces further challenges in their daily lives including gender based violence, fewer opportunities in the workspace and societal traditions that place women below men. In Nepal, there continues to exist unequal power relationships between genders. To combat gender inequality, GPYC is committed to educating children on the importance of gender equality, helping them understand why it is essential. Active within the schools, GPYC promotes gender equality through inclusion-based games and activities. Ultimately, “ We believe that by
Celebrating International Peace Day
On September 21st, 2016 we celebrated International Peace Day spreading the messages of peace love and inclusion. In commemorating the International Day of Peace GPYC organized a day of activities to promote and encourage peace as part of the global movement. From walking to drawing, meeting new friends and engaging the community, the day ensured messages of peace were seen and heard. Participants came together to spread the message of the year’s theme “building blocks for peace” and in doing so supported the global recognition of peace. Youth from various backgrounds participated in the ‘Walk for Peace’ whereby participants walked from New Road to Basantaphur Durbar square. Celebrating the Day with passers-bys at the end of the walk, participants engaged in games allowing for public awareness and commemoration of the day. Calling upon their acting skills, participants engaged in
Raising Awareness on Human Trafficking
Human trafficking in Nepal has been prevalent for decades; the United Nations estimates that between 12,000 and 15, 000 girls are trafficked to India and the Middle East every year mainly for the purpose of sexual exploitation and forced marriages. Additionally, 1, 000 women and girls are trafficked into South Korea and China each year by marriage bureaus promising citizenship and jobs. In an effort to counter the daily violation of women’s rights, we work to provide education, awareness and prevention on the topic of human trafficking. One way we achieve this is through prevention and community outreach. Visiting various communities, we strive to engage people in a dialogue about the reality, dangers and possible impact of either being smuggled or being a victim of trafficking. In many communities this has taken the form of puppet shows, drawing in
