Introduction to Green Path Nepal:

Green Path Nepal (GPN) was established for the environment protection, climate change and natural resource conservation with right based approach to the community people as well as policy makers, development workers and civil society. GPN has long experience in designing, developing and implementing the programs on waste management, natural resource management, environmental conservation, energy, water and sanitation, climate change adaptation and disaster risk management. GPN strives to successfully assist people, organization’s, systems and processes in Nepal and works closely with national entities to positively contribute to the promotion of the better health and environmental status and the empowerment of communities in Nepal.

Background of the project:

Project Title: Healthy Waste Workers for Sustainable Waste Management

Project Description:

The project “Healthy Waste Workers for Sustainable Management” is being implemented in collaboration with KMC Health Department, technical and financial support from Médecins du Monde- France (MdM-F) and Green Path Nepal (GPN) and Samyukta Safai Jagaran (SASAJA) as national implementing partners. The project goal is to create positive impact for improving health, wellbeing and livelihood of informal waste workers (IWWs) in Kathmandu valley and Sisdole landfill site. The project sights to reinforce the capacities of leaders of IWWs for the establishment and operation of nonprofit enterprises for poverty reduction, upliftment of self-confidence and develop social recognition of the IWWs among the community. To achieve the project goal and objective, the project has the following three outcomes:

Outcome 1: Formalization of IWWs through non-profit enterprises and increasing their recognition in integrated solid waste management in urban cities.

Outcome 2: Increase risk mitigation and promotion of decent safe work opportunities in current activities and through innovation

Outcome 3: Increase access to quality health services for IWWs and the community through promotion of Urban Health Promotion Center

Among these three outcomes, GPN is primarily responsible to carry out Outcome 2 through execution of the following outputs;

  • Output 2.1 All IWWs non-profit enterprises participate in local and regional platforms involving public and private partners for policy dialogue and access to rights
  • Output 2.2 Innovative economic opportunities contributing to risk mitigation and environmental exposure are initiated by IWWs non-profit enterprise and associated partners through capacity building of IWWs on entrepreneurial and basic financial skills
  • Output 2.3 Capacity building of IWWs regarding OHS and its activities implementation

Under Output 2.2 there is the activity for IWWs non-profit enterprises members’ training in entrepreneurial and vocational skills, based on the need identified from the entrepreneurial capacity assessment which GPN conducted. One of the topics identified for vocational training was mobile repairing as IWWs are engaged in electronic waste management in scrap shops. E-waste management is a major problem in Nepal, especially in Kathmandu. The majority of the e-waste collected in scrap shops is televisions, laptops, mobile/cell phones, batteries, cables etc. Currently, most of these are open burned to extract copper. We are trying to promote refurbishment and repair of the e-waste and capacitate IWWs on these skills, particularly mobile repairing.

The deliverables expected from the consultant are:

  1. Review the HWW4SWM project specific documents like Entrepreneurial Capacity Assessment Report and business operation mediation which helps to develop the training content.
  2. Prepare training content for 3 Day and deliver to 30 IWWs Member of Non-Profit Enterprise Safai Yodda. 
  3. Develop capacity of Safai Yodda Members in the field of entrepreneurship development and business management sector by delivering Need Specific Training.
  4. Provide entrepreneurship development training to targeted project beneficiaries (30 IWWs) i.e. NPE Members of Safai yodda. 
  5. Review business plan developed during the training programme by training participants and provide technical support to the beneficiaries.  
  6. Preparation of Training Report
