The Women’s Empowerment Programme is one of the major programmes being conducted in Jitpurphedi. This programme is targeted at development and empowerment of women by improving their education, life skills, income generation and health.
A saving credit co-operative has been formed in 2008 which now includes over 500 women’s groups from 66 communities in the Kathmandu Valley. It encourages women to save money to get interest. To support the women´s income activities, our programme conducts training for the required skills (farming, sewing cutting skills etc.)
