UN Women - Women´s Economic Empowerment


UN Women´s Women´s Economic Empowerment project aims to enhance the economic situation of especially the most poorest groups of Nepalese women. The participation of Nepalese women in the advancement of the national economy is limited due to insufficient economic resources and low level of education. The project advances the consciousness of the beneficiaries regarding their rights through networks of marginalized women. The project builds up the capacity of the Government of Nepal to follow the conditions of equality in its economic policy both at national and provincial level. Specific beneficiaries can be named female migrant workers, domestic servants, HIV positive women, victims of conflicts and human trafficking and the female farmers of remote areas. UN Women´s office in Nepal will execute the project and contract will be concluded with the main office of UN Women. Finland will support the project with 4 000 000 euros from 2015 to 2017.
