For the past one and half decade the most challenging problems for Nepal is youth unemployment. Youth, make up 42 percent of total population, and 38.8 percent of them are unemployed.
According to the recent publication report of United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)-2014, the number of young people of working age in Nepal is currently increasing by 550,000 a year, and by 2020 it will climb to 633,000 a year. Seeking employment opportunities, more than 2000 youth leave the country every day. In the last ten years, more than 2.4 million youth have migrated in gulf countries.
In this context, Nepali Greens launched “Youth-self-employment campaign” on the occasion of International Youth day (12th August 2014), in order to provide “training and further assistance” to young people and finally enable them to be self-employed.
