This reporting is about livelihood supportwith vocational training for the earthquake victim. Anish Lama (19 years old) has started to takethe course since January.
She lost her house due to the earthquakes.She was living with her parents in low, working as farmer and raisinglivestock in Kavrepalanchok district. The disaster took the basis of livelihoodaway from them. She moved to the small rent room of her brother in the capitalcity Kathmandu so that she found any jobs.
She is bringing up 2 years old son alone after earthquake.She got married when she was high school student. A lot of works at home andfarming forced her to give up attending the school.
Then, her husband got married with otherwomen when he went abroad to find the job. Also, her parents are old and cannotafford the time and money for supporting of her.She got job as a day labor bring thestones in construction places in Kathmandu. But it is not regular and shortterm work. She could not bring her sonto the hospital when he got sickness. She did not have enough money. The lifewas difficult.
We considered of her support to provide sewingcourse as vocational training instead of scholarship for attending high school.It was fit with her hoping as well as the situation. The course is 6 months to learn basic knowledge and skills for making simple dress of Nepal. Wearingorder made dress is popular for females in Nepal. You can see many cloth shopsand tailor’s shop in the towns. Some of the shops provide the courses to thetrainees, many females are learning there in practice.
Anisha told us with smile about herstrong motivation to learn it, ‘I would like to give proper education for myson, and to do best whatever he needs.
We continue the support for herindependent living.
