Who can apply for womens empowerment programs?

Anyone! For those who are fluent in English, the help you can give to the women will be invaluable.

It gives the women a chance to speak with a native English speaker, and you will naturally be able to help with prounciation, basic phrases, reading and writing.

The knowledge and skills you can teach these women will help them to look after themselves independently. We offer women empowerment programs in Kenya, Tanzania, Nepal, Fiji and India.

Our women empowerment programs are some of our most rewarding.

Anyone with a desire to inspire, and to help close the inequality gap, and give these women more confidence and independence, will enjoy this volunteer project.

Each is a little different so take a look at each one and decide which is the best for for you!

What does womens empowerment involve?

Most projects focus on teaching the English language. This can  help women looking for future career opportunites, and knowing how to speak English can greatly increase their job prospects, particually within the tourism industry.

Other things volunteers can help with on our woman empowerment projects is helping the women to find talents they already have, that could provide an income. Things like craft making, sewing, knitting, painting, etc. These are things the women can make and sell in the local markets. You can provide valuable help in teaching them how to best go about it, how to save their money, how to set up their business and how to promote their products.

This information can be so valuable and inspirational for the women, who can finally start earning their own living and support thier families.

Why volunteer in womens empowerment programs?

What better gift can you give to someone than to provide an education and inspiration, helping them to gain a bright future, with great opportunities. IVI’s womens empowerment programs are focused mostly on education, and teaching English skills.

Some of the women on our projects have not had access to an education, simply becasue they are women. We are trying to change that and thankfuly, things are starting to change and women are trying to gain an education and to support themselves. 

By sharing your knowledge, and helping to inspire these women, they can be empowered to change something in their lives, to start earning and income and sustain themselves independently, giving them freedom and equality.

Womens Empowerment, Nepal
I would say the highlight was just meeting and working with the women I was teaching English too. Team, food and accommodation was good, I loved the Nepali food, always disappointed when we were given Western food.
