Project Description

This project initiative focuses on developing skills in waste segregation, recycling, and innovative business practices within the green economy. With rapid urbanization and significant unemployment, GEMS-L addresses the critical need for sustainable waste management solutions and economic opportunities. The project comprises Stakeholder Networking and Knowledge-sharing, Capacity Building, Awareness Campaigns and Community Engagement, and Project Management and Coordination. Over seven months, the project will foster collaboration among NGOs, local authorities, and the community, promoting public participation and enhancing waste management infrastructure. By equipping youth with the skills and knowledge for entrepreneurship and self-employment, GEMS-L aims to create a more sustainable and economically resilient Lalitpur.
