Nov 27, 2015-
The Foreign Employment Promotion Board and the Safe migration Project have signed an agreement to impart free skill-enhancing training to overseas job aspirants.
The programme, which will last till the end of the current fiscal year, expects to benefit around 10,000 foreign job aspirants. Under the programme, selected workers can receive training courses lasting for seven days to one month. The participants will also be provided free accommodation. The courses include carpentry, scaffolding, plumbing, shuttering, masonry, plumbing, cleaning and waiter training.
Though reliable data is hard to come by, nearly 74 percent of outbound Nepali migrant workers leave the country without acquiring proper training and orientation, exposing themselves to various kinds of vulnerabilities. Some 1,500 Nepalis leave the country each day for overseas jobs.
