NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT:

Skill Up! Strengthening Skills Development, Creating Future Perspectives is a project funded by BMZ and implemented by CEAPRED in partnership with Welthungerhilfe (WHH).   It is part of global Skill up program initiated to accelerate the inclusive economic development activities to the least developed Provinces (province6 and 7) in Nepal which ensures economic growth (prosperity), environmental protection (planet) and inclusion of most vulnerable and marginalized population groups (people) in the developmental mainstream. It is a 42 months project effective from 1st November 2019 to 30th April 2023.

The project is being implemented in Surkhet and Salyan districts of province  6 (Karnali) and Kanchanpur district of Province 7 (Sudur Paschim).. The intervention will promote the inter-province learning sharing and exchange as well as evidence fine-tuning for policy influence. The youth (gender balanced and inclusion of minority groups) is the primary target group of the project and at least 2,994 (50% women) individuals will directly be benefitted from the skill transfer activities, including in-house courses (478 youths) and extension-based training approach/ farmer field schools (2,516 farmers). The project targeted the marginalized population groups such as women, Dalit and tribal/ ethnic minority. The project also targets to establish at least 15 Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). CEAPRED will partner with field-based institutes such as technical schools/ colleges, private company and cooperatives to implement the program. The project will affiliate with vocational training accreditation body such as Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) as intermediaries and will work with government bodies and civil society networks and associations for green economy policy advocacy.
