Chance for Nepal - Empowering Women in Nepal with Skills Training


Through SHENPEN (their partner on the ground), CHANCE funds skills training organised by the Women’s Co-operative Society (WCS) in Nepal.

Learning vegetable farming skills with WCS enables women to support themselves, their family and their community and also to fund their children’s education and improve life for the next generation.

In the Tamang Community in Bhardeau, the WCS organised a four-day training course on basic farming of seasonal and unseasonal vegetables. Women learnt to grow vegetables – like cauliflower, cabbage and tomatoes – all year round, using tunnels to protect the crops from adverse weather conditions. They also learnt how to use worm castings as manure and compost.

There are two levels of training: Elementary and Advanced. Advance Training instructs on administration, costings and employment and follows on from the Elementary Training.

WCS conduct 6 trainings per year where over 260 women take part in different regions.
