This year's UN International Women's Day message calls on us to create a better working world for a more inclusive, gender-equal world. AHF vocational training programs in Nepal and Bhutan are helping to close the gap for women who have endured economic hardship or domestic violence. The training programs are focused on building technical skills so that women and girls can provide for themselves and their families.
For the last 12 months, Gita Subedi, who works for our in-country partner REED Nepal has been championing our vocational training program in villages far and wide across the communities in which we work. We have now trained over 35 women in practical skills that are leading to new job opportunities and income generation for these disadvantaged women.
This year, we will be bringing you more stories of Gita and her remarkable commitment to improving the lives of the women and girls of Nepal.
Climb the equivalent of Mount Everest to raise funds for AHF!
Neverest, the AHF 'Everesting' challenge for Nepal, will take place again this year in Canberra, Melbourne & Sydney to raise funds for our TTQE program in Nepal - the fundraising goal is to raise $30,000 which will fund 150 school scholarships for children in Nepal.
We are pleased to announce that our 2015-16 Annual Report is now available and can be downloaded here here.
New video of our work in Nepal
Our thanks to AHF Ambassador, Mike Dillon AM for producing this wonderful new video of our teacher-training program in Nepal. Make a cup of tea and take some time to hear from Jim Strang, our Education Consultant and the teachers we work with in Nepal about the how this training is enabling children in rural areas to receive a quality education.
