Tech2Empower Nepal, April 25-May 2, 2020. 
PROGRAM POSTPONED due to Covid-19


Tech2Empower Nepal is a unique opportunity to learn about and contribute to girls’ education, and to support, advise and connect with women social entrepreneurs who are making a difference in their community. At the same time, Advisors will make new friends, build your professional network, and explore the rich culture of Nepal.

In the past decade, Nepal has emerged from a decade of conflict, a peace process, massive destruction, and subsequent reconstruction, after the 2015 earthquake. Also in 2015, Nepal adopted a new constitution and has returned to national elections. During this pivotal time in Nepal’s development, it is especially critical to support and foster women’s leadership and active role in society, and to ensure they have the skills and resources to reach their full potential.


Program overview:

Tech2Empower Advisors provide hands-on project support and customized trainings to women and girls in the communities we visit. This is a unique volunteer opportunity for individuals working in tech, communications, finance and business to share their professional skills to amplify the work of women social entrepreneurs and to engage with the next generation of women leaders, by advancing girls' education and by hosting a tech fair for young women. 

Tech2Empower Nepal Advisors will have the opportunity to:

  • Work in teams to coach and co-create (systems, strategies, plans, digital collateral) with local women social entrepreneurs.

  • Mentor young women and girls in career, leadership and tech. 

  • Participate in site visits with local women's organizations. 

  • Build meaningful connections with like-minded women working locally and internationally. 

  • Learn about local history, visit landmarks and participate in cultural enrichment activities. 

  • Learn new technology, training, communications and leadership skills from trainings led by fellow Advisors.
