KATHMANDU: Unilever Nepal, one of the largest manufacturing companies in Nepal, has partnered with Maiti Nepal to improve women’s employability in society through its initiative ‘Asha’.

Maiti Nepal, one of the non-profit organisations in Nepal, works together with women who have been victims of human trafficking or domestic abuse, to increase and improve their social, economic and legal strength.

This partnership aims to provide sustainable income-generating avenues for these women.

These women will undergo intensive training through the program under the guidance of experts from renowned brands of beauty parlours, excavator driving and sales training. They will also be provided with accommodation at Maiti Nepal Rehabilitation Centre during their training period.

Employability of women will help them fully participate in economic life across all sectors to build stronger economies, achieve internationally agreed goals for development and sustainability, and improve the quality of life for women, their families and communities.

Anuradha Koirala, founder of Maiti Nepal, and Amlan Mukherjee, Managing Director of Unilever Nepal, inaugurated the programme in presence of local community experts at Maiti Nepal, on Monday.

Addressing the programme, Mukherjee said, “While we believe that its everyone’s responsibility to return to the society even much what we have got from it. We seek to deliver a long-term sustainable journey while equipping women with essential skills for a better future of Nepal as a part of its contribution to a fairer and more socially inclusive world. Over the years we strive to serve communities more through such initiatives.”
