The project will assist the non-school/college going youth aged from 16 to 28 years old and/or with physical disabilities, who are the victims of domestic or other violence, who are semi orphans, who have been rejected or neglected by parents, and who have unstable families or come from families with crisis.
FOCUSED will shortlist the deserving dropout youths and choose 15 out of many in the first semi-quarter regardless of gender, family background, color, caste etc. FOCUSED will seek application from all around the Nepal and choose the most deserving ones from it. These dropouts will be provided with opportunities so that they can continue with their work life.
Programs to help dropout students is very much required to mitigate the influence of negative factors for individual, family and society. Hence to mitigate the negative influence of dropouts, FOCUSED is planning to provide technological/technical skill program to dropout youths – Website Design & Graphic Design Course along with Counseling and Motivation Session.
The centre will help the dropouts develop interest in their studies, increase their self-confidence and help them acquire certain skills, which will help them to be established in life. This will develop their self-esteem and the sense of responsibility towards their family, society and themselves. The idea here is develop an interest towards a positive alternative engagement.
This will not only help them to bring positive changes in the family but also they would become role models within the community and an inspiration for others and their next generation.
