PRO2 Project: Empowering Nepali Youth with Local Jobs and Dignified Employment Opportunities

In 2023, 770,000 young Nepalis sought jobs overseas due to limited opportunities at home. Sadly, a 2024 report reveals that around 15 Nepali workers lose their lives each month while working abroad. PRO2 is committed to curbing this trend, aiming to boost local employment and create jobs.

Meet Narendra Buda (redirect to YouTube video) and Roshan Kumar Tharu (redirect to YouTube video), both returnee migrant workers now employed at Pick and Drop, one of the beneficiaries of the PRO2 Project! For Narendra, life has taken a positive turn with a job in Nepal, while Roshan appreciates the chance to be close to his family. However, not everyone is as fortunate as them. Thousands still labor abroad in challenging conditions, hoping for better lives.

PRO2 and One to Watch are dedicated to providing job opportunities locally, ensuring young people find dignified employment at home, and reducing the necessity to work abroad.
