Job Description

Life Project 4 Youth is an international movement of 19 organizations in 14 countries whose mission is the development of innovative solutions for the professional and social inclusion of Young people (15-24 yo) from extreme poverty and victims of exclusion.

LP4Y supports the decent inclusion of thousands of Young people and their families in 57 programs, 20 Training & Development Centers, 5 Little Angel Academies, 5 Green Villages, 2 LP4Y Labs in South East Asia, South Asia, Middle East, Europe and America.

Over the past 13 years LP4Y has created solutions, always close to slum areas in large cities such as Manila, Cebu, Iligan, Cagayan de Oro, Calauan, Jakarta, Surabaya, New-Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Raipur, Chennai, Kathmandu, Yangon, Dhaka, and Beirut. Currently, we are 140 Catalysts in Asia working with Young Adults contributing to the development of their country. Since 2009, 3,363 youth have been accompanied to the professional world.

GREEN VILLAGE NEPAL

Green Village Nepal

The first Green Village started in July 2018, with a unique and experimental project of a Sustainable Entrepreneurial Training Center for out-of-school Young Adults nearby Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India. This soft skill training center has welcomed and trained already +300 Youth coming from skilling programs like Vocational Training Programs (VTPs) or other organisms (livelihood, other NGOs, associations…), helped them in developing professional grooming and employability skills (communication skills, organization and management, time management, business mindset, teamwork, citizenship…).

The final objective is to help them to find a stable and decent job (by teaching them, without placement).

Based on the same replicable model, a Sustainable Entrepreneurial Training Center was created in January 2020 in Kathmandu, now located in Godawari, Lalitpur.

Both projects use a hands-on pedagogy in the social and professional integration of Youth based on the 11 years experience of Life Project 4 Youth Foundation, LP4Y, specialized in integration of excluded Youth. In a team, the Youth create and develop micro-companies in order to develop skills, gain self-esteem and become actors of their life.
