Community Empowerment and Transformation Project with Being Youth – Project 025


Project 025 / 2024 – 2025


The Community Empowerment and Transformation Project, led by Being Youth, addresses multifaceted challenges in Thaha Municipality, Makwanpur. Focused on issues like school dropout, poor infrastructure, livelihood insecurity, migration, gender-based violence, and weak governance participation, the project builds on lessons from past collaborations. Drawing from a successful 2022-2023 initiative, the new project intensifies efforts to enhance education facilities, empower marginalized communities, and bolster governance capacity. Notably, it aims to minimize school dropout rates by providing resources, infrastructure improvements, and fostering community engagement.


  • Key objectives: The project aims to create a transformative environment by improving education access, enhancing economic stability, and fostering social resilience. Through vocational training, financial literacy programs, and community engagement initiatives, the project strives to break the cycle of poverty, empower marginalized communities, and elevate the quality and delivery of education services. By focusing on entrepreneurship, education access, and youth involvement in agriculture, the project targets sustainable development and increased community capacity.


  • The main activities encompass various initiatives. In the Laligurans project, there is a focus on Entrepreneurship Development, involving training women in local production, particularly in making school uniforms, bags, and artisanal items. Financial management is also emphasized to promote effective financial practices and sustainable economic approaches. The Diyo project aims to improve access to education by providing school supplies for 400 students, conducting parent awareness programs, enhancing teacher training, and investing in the infrastructure of four primary schools. Lastly, the Youth in Agriculture project offers agricultural training for young individuals and farmers, emphasizing sustainable practices, along with the establishment of a soil laboratory at the agricultural learning center.
