Finance & Operation Coordinator

Nepal strives to graduate from LDC to middle-income country status by 2030.  The excessive focus of Nepal’s development paradigm on socio-political empowerment, however, has not yielded the desired economic transformation.  In fact, the dismal domestic youth employment has heightened foreign migration, lowered domestic productivity, and increased economic dependence on foreign nations.  Daayitwa, with a focus on economic empowerment, envisions an enterprising Nepal where every youth has opportunities for a prosperous future and aims to:

  1. Promote inclusive and enterprise-led economic growth

  2. Strengthen governance of inclusive enterprise ecosystem

  3. Bolster community engagement for enhanced livelihoods

Daayitwa is a campaign for economic empowerment with the vision of an enterprising Nepal where every youth has opportunities for a prosperous future.  It operates three clusters at grassroots, government and global levels.  It supports rural growth-oriented entrepreneurs to accelerate their innovations and grow other entrepreneurs in their local communities.  Leveraging the grassroots learning, it collaborates with the government to conduct policy research and advocate for economic policy reform.  Finally, it transforms these interventions into a global campaign that nurtures enterprising mindset in Nepalis by bolstering leadership capacity in enterprise ecosystem stakeholders.
