Bhavisya Handicraft Training Project

This training project is supported by the Swiss non-profit organization Association Bhavisya. Its mission is to help empower, rehabilitate, and reintegrate underprivileged youths by teaching them handicraft skills. PA Nepal’s teenage participants spend three years attending after-school classes in thangka painting, paper crafts, pottery, or woodcarving, during which time they live and bond together as a family unit. While in Bhavisya classes, each student receives a stipend, 30% of which is given to them as spending money while the rest is deposited in a savings account. Upon graduation from the program, the students are given access to their savings along with counseling to start their own handicraft businesses.
