Welcome to YPDSN !!!

About the Organization :

Young Professional Development Society Nepal (YPDSN) is a nonprofit, non-governmental and community based organization working on professional development, youth and women empowerment, education and livelihood promotion. YPDSN aspires to improve the living conditions of poor and marginalized peoples by adopting strategies through community initiative, participation and sensitization. It is founded in 2013 and has been working among backward communities in the interior unreached pockets in the coast of Nepal. Women self support groups have been taken as the base for all interventions and SDGs activities enabling them to contribute towards the mainstream of development process.

The social and cultural boundaries that have long distinguished childhood, youth and adulthood are rapidly changing. Children are physically developing earlier and faster, and because of social media, they have access to a virtual world outside their immediate families and communities. They are growing up in a world more culturally diverse. The period of transition from childhood to adulthood is becoming extended and more complex. The transition from education to employment reflects these complexities in particular. Traditionally, young people moved from formal education or training to work, with gender and socio-economic background being major determining factors. Today, education and work often occur simultaneously and retraining or lifelong learning is becoming a feature of adult life.

Young men and women are particularly affected by development challenges at all levels, frequently faced with disproportionately high levels of unemployment, insufficient access to education and professional training, intolerance and exclusion, among others. This is all the more importance in cities where increased urbanization has further accentuated these challenges for young people. Young professional and leader can contribute to local development and  prosperity.  Culture is a bridge between tradition and modernity. Who have the interest, energy and passion to address issues and concerns, such as heritage management, sustainable tourism, local development and community involvement.
