Child Welfare Scheme (CWS)

Jyoti Training Centre (JVTC) in Pokhara, Nepal, received a £10,000 boost thanks to ERSF in its efforts to provide housing, vocational training, social and life skills to 128 disadvantaged, vulnerable and at risk young people in the area.

The £10,000 grant helped to pay for classroom/training costs which are geared up to helping them gain employment, become independent and reintegrate into mainstream society.

“The grant has allowed CWS and our local partner CWS Nepal to implement a newly designed programme to increase the cost-effectiveness of JVTC and increase the number of beneficiaries to 134 (63 girls and 71 boys) from 22 districts of Nepal,” said Interim Head of Fundraising Jill Nadolski.
