Women empowerment program

NVDP offer four major projects within the women empowerment program. Education, right and life skills, microcredit cooperative support, income generation and marketing, women’s trafficking prevention project. Women empowerment program seeks to improve the quality of life of women living in the under privileged, rural communities where we run our projects by providing them with economic tools, basic education, improve health and a life without violence. NVDP believes that through the empowerment of women and children the entire community can be transformed.

Volunteers have the opportunity to exchange ideas, collaborate in ongoing projects, teach basic English skills, help with small business and be a positive role model. You can also provide support in many other ways, depending on your skills and interests and the needs of the local community. So, NVDP invites all interested national and international volunteers to be a part of our women development programs. Your small efforts can make a big difference to the women in the most marginalized communities.
