Kathmandu: Training for Female Carpenters

What it is about

Together with our project partner Kar.ma Coffee in Kathmandu, women were trained as carpenters. With this training they will be able to produce wooden accessories in the future. In this way they are able to generate their own income and act more self-determined and independent in their lives. For the training of the carpenters, places were rented in a community workshop or a training centre was used, trainers were organised and the sale was carried out by Kar.ma Coffee.

Our part in this project

Roots for Life financed the development of the training infrastructure. In addition, the women receive a small wage to motivate them to complete their training.
