Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI)

The Government of Nepal has considered Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) as an important issue from both a human rights and social development aspect. Nepal’s interim constitution 2063 has emphasized GESI mainstreaming in development endeavors. The Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development (MoFALD) has developed a GESI policy, which is required to be adopted by all government agencies.

In this context, the Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) is committed to mainstreaming GESI in the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector. This output calls for a GESI sensitive curriculum and the inclusion of a GESI module as a common module in the curriculum of short term trainings and long term courses.
