Nepal Hemophilia Society (NHS) recently concluded a successful press conference aimed at increasing awareness about hemophilia in Nepal and advocating for stronger government support for individuals with hemophilia (PWH).
In a heartwarming initiative aimed at empowering mothers and girls in Nepal, the Nepal Hemophilia Society recently conducted a Soap and Phenyl phenyl-making training program from September 1st to 7th, 2023. This program, sponsored by Save One Life, USA, brought together 22 enthusiastic participants eager to gain practical skills and financial independence.
The primary objectives of the training program were to equip mothers with practical skills in liquid soap making and phenyl production. By doing so, the program aimed to enable these mothers to generate income for their families while supporting their children’s medical needs. Moreover, it sought to promote self-reliance and empower these mothers to become active contributors to their households.
During the week-long training, participants engaged in various activities to achieve these objectives:
Theoretical sessions on soap and phenyl-making techniques.
Hands-on practical sessions to create liquid soap and phenyl products.
Guidance on sourcing raw materials and maintaining quality control.
Essential marketing and entrepreneurship skills to help them sell their products.
Outcomes and Impact
The program yielded several positive outcomes:
Participants successfully acquired the skills required to make liquid soap and phenyl.
Increased confidence and enthusiasm among the mothers, as they now have a source of income to support their families.
Post Training Expectations
The market for liquid soap and phenyl in Nepal holds promise due to their wide range of applications. It is expected that many trainees will utilize these newfound skills for financial independence. The Nepal Hemophilia Society plans to continue supporting these mothers by facilitating access to markets and assisting them in establishing small businesses. The ultimate goal is to expand the program’s reach to benefit more families in need.
