IT Training & E-mentoring
RUWON Nepal is providing IT training for girls and women from rural areas. Our focus is the women and girls from the earthquake-affected areas in the rural communities who are studying at university in Kathmandu. They have a huge disadvantage when they come to compete with girls and boys from other backgrounds in cities areas for employment. Our aim is to provide girls and women from rural backgrounds who are studying in University with computer skills to enhance their employability. Currently we are training 30 women and girls.
RUWON, in partnership with W4, has also set up an 8-week e-mentoring program for the participants of our IT training program.
Every week, the students focus on a soft skill and exchange emails with mentors from all around the world to discuss this topic. The soft skills covered include time-management, teamwork and problem-solving skills, for example.
