Wemen’s Cooperative

A part of our work for Women Empowerment

An important factor in Women’s Empowerment is for women to have their own source of income. In 2022 the Trust, with the enthusiastic support of the women of Nalang, formed the Nalang Women’s Cooperative (JOON/DIYO).

The objective is providing sources of income for women; having equal position in the family as men; support the education of their children . The Cooperative will hand make products for sale in Europe and the USA using local techniques and materials. A program of training members of the cooperative in the necessary skills will start in 2023.

The Trust decided towards the end of 2022 to set up a sister charity in France ( Yearley Trust Nepal) to assist in the program of the Cooperative. Under the direction of Doriana Dimitrova – Warren, who will be the women’s voice in Europe and has already recruiting its first volunteers to help with the setting up. More volunteers are needed and any ideas, partnerships are very welcome.

‘With our funding, so far, we are delighted to say that we have been able to support more young girls to continue their education with developing the community school and hiring more teachers. We are also carrying on a program to help more women to continue their education after school.

In 2023 with the local women in the community of `Nalang, Dhading we’ve established a Women’s Skills Corporative, which main purpose is for mothers to change the future opportunities for their daughters. The women’s role in every family in those rural areas starts with taking care of the house, by getting up at 4 o’clock in the morning, get the children ready for school, cook the 3 meals of the day and working a heavy physical work on the family farm.’
