According to Nepal Labor Force Survey 17-18,

  1. For every 100 males in the working-age population, there are 125 females. However,
  2. For every 100 employed males, there are only 59 employed females.

Despite enormous contributions to the economy as laborers, to businesses as entrepreneurs and employees, or even at home, they’re still the ones who remain disproportionately affected by poverty, discrimination, and exploitation. Our foundation thus supports women’s economic empowerment in line with the growing body of evidence that shows that gender equality significantly contributes to advancing economies and sustainable development. By working with various partners across multiple industries, our programmes promote women’s ability to secure blue and white-collar decent jobs and influence institutions and public policies determining growth and development.
