Free English Lessons
In 2009, RUWON ran a project offering literacy classes for disadvantaged women. Six days a week for two hours, the women were educated by volunteer teachers in Nepalese literacy and the English language. Through education, RUWON aspired to empower these women, build their self-esteem, and assist them to actively achieve their rights across all areas of society. We trained 235 women through this project. Further projects continue today with the help of Volunteer English teachers from overseas. We are currently training 20 women in Katmandu.
