women for the workforce.
Life-skills and career training center
We believe that with good training comes great opportunity. Our graduates are workforce ready and trained to meet specific industry standards that will set them apart from others entering the field.
We currently offer certification in four career training tracks.
A holistic and personalized approach
Our mission is to empower women to enter the workforce by offering a holistic training approach to job preparedness and readiness for independent living. We have partnered with local companies in thriving industries to train individuals to specific standards in order to meet requirements for job placement. Additionally, we offer a Student Housing Program that includes individualized SMART goals and life-skills education. Our courses are evidence-based and remain up-to-date with industry growth and changes.
Our graduates receive exclusive certification and are guaranteed interviews with leading companies in the Kathmandu area.
Studies show that 1 out of every 3 women in Nepal between the ages of 15 and 49 is uneducated. Of those educated, more than 80% are out of school by grade 11. Along with career training, we teach a variety of life-skills courses aimed at preparing students for independent living, caring for their families and job readiness.
“It is easy for the boys to hunt for jobs compared to the girls,” said one 18 year old girl. We aim to empower girls with distinguished career skills, personalized goals and confidence. Our courses fully prepare graduates for the workforce. We offer four career training certification courses.
Every year in Nepal, 20,000 plus women and girls fall victim to Sex Trafficking. We have partnered with a number of organizations working to rescue, rehabilitate and reintegrate survivors by providing necessary skills for individuals to thrive, support themselves and their families and to retain their freedom.
Our trainers are trauma-informed and we prioritize scholarship opportunities for victims of sex-trafficking.
We partner with local companies in thriving industries to provide job placement to our program graduates.

Become is a for-profit social enterprise established in Nepal. We charge a fee for our services and we pay our staff above-average salaries. While employers, organizations and/or government funding may partially or fully fund some women to participate in our programs, others will be dependent on scholarships provided by people like you. We are looking for individuals or organizations willing to provide scholarships toward our Workplace Professionalism and Career Courses and/or our Student Housing Program. Many of the women we hope to serve will not be able to pay for services and your scholarship donation will provide opportunities for undereducated and marginalized women to obtain employment, as well as for some women to avoid needing to return to sex-work. Your contributions are tax-deductible. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
