UKaid Nepal Skills for Employment (सीप) Programme Monthly Bulletin: June 2021

Funded by the UK Government, UKaid सीप, is brokering transformational partnerships with the private and public sector to propel growth of employment and entrepreneurial opportunities in priority sectors – commercial agriculture, light manufacturing, tourism, ICT, and construction – primarily in Province 2 and Lumbini Province. सीप uses an innovative Challenge Fund to expand market-aligned skilling, affordable financial products, and ethical migration services linked to gainful livelihoods for Nepalis and support transformation and growth within industries.

Expanding Industry-led Multi-Sectoral Public Private Partnerships for In-demand Job Occupations
UKaid सीप’s partnership with the Morang Earth Movers Pvt. Ltd. (MEPL) has brought together an industry leader in the construction sector, local training providers, local governments, NGOs, and the wider private sector for establishing pathways for industry-led skilling-based employment for job seekers as well as firm growth for interlinked industries. Using a system-strengthening approach, MEPL’s co-investment and leadership, with support from सीप, has resulted in: establishment of a state-of-the-art Operator Training Centre at Janakpur; significant upgrades to training partners at Nepalgunj and Bhaktapur; and a newly-forming Public Private Partnership (PPP) with the Tilottama Municipality that will expand MEPL’s MAW Skills Academy in the Butwal-Bhairahawa corridor.(Read more...)
