Esther Thapa from IN Nepal

Meeting at 18 Wray Street Hall, Brockville, to hear from Esther Thapa who leads the team that runs the LYDIA VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTRE
In Kathmandu, Nepal.

Lydia is committed to providing underprivileged young women of Nepal
with the basic life skills, literacy, numeracy and vocational skills
to make a living and lead productive, independent lives in their
communities.

Every year two batches of approximately 22 women (affected by varying
degrees of social, religious, educational and economic hardship) spend
5 months in residence at Lydia immersed in sewing, cultural studies, exploring issues in health education as well as Bible studies.

At the end of the course the women, newly empowered with marketable
skills return to their homes and attempt to put their training to use.
