Multimedia Officer

  • Sanepa Rd, Lalitpur 44600, Nepal
  • Full-time

Company Description

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

Towards these goals, Daayitwa executes three programs.  The Rural Enterprise Acceleration Program (REAP) supports rural high-growth entrepreneurs to accelerate their businesses, create jobs and incubate other local entrepreneurs.  Leveraging the grassroots enterprise learning, the Public Service Fellowship Program (PSFP) supports policy entrepreneurs to collaborate with the government, conduct economic policy research and promote evidence-based policy decisions.  In linking the grassroots and government level engagements, the Civic Engagement Program (CEP) supports civic innovators to promote domestic youth employment through evidence-based policy advocacy.  REAP has supported 45 business entrepreneurs in 4 districts of Province 3 and Province 5 to accelerate their enterprises.  PSFP has supported 99 policy entrepreneurs from 28 countries to collaborate with 28 ministries and public agencies as well as 24 parliamentarians and conduct 99 research projects.  CEP has supported 50 civic entrepreneurs to organize 6 policy campaigns at federal, provincial and local levels on promoting domestic youth employment.

Daayitwa, registered as an NGO in Nepal, is part of the Daayitwa Abhiyaan.  The Abhiyaan also comprises of three other institutions:

  • Nepal Leadership Academy, a Nepal-based profit not-distributing company, that conducts leadership research, develops curriculum and offers leadership training.

  • Governance Lab, a Nepal-based for-profit research firm, that conducts economic policy research and influence government to make evidence-based policy decisions

  • Daayitwa-US, a US-based 501c3 non-profit that connects and builds leadership capacity of US diaspora for strengthened diasporic communities to contribute to Nepal’s growth.
