It’s aims to respond at Nepal to the needs of young people from different aspects. It has been adopted after wide consultation with the different stakeholders in the youth field.

It makes an important contribution to the acquisition of competences through non-formal learning as well as to the promotion of young people’s active participation to promote youth empower and development. entrepreneurship and tourism activities with sustainable development, national and international mobility, active youth, mutual cooperation, biological, cultural engagement, and awareness of different social aspects. Our structure host a small campsite in the middle of nature, with is based on professional exchange and learning tourism and cultural heritage and preservation, in a linked intercultural process.
We are still lacking in innovative industrial and business processes, new products and services, and at exploiting them to provide an edge over the international competition. Therefore, there is a strong need in Nepal for a systematic and worldwide promotion and development of entrepreneurial culture and entrepreneurial learning. Moreover, SMEs and in particular micro-‐enterprises still have problems when it comes to access to finance and information, to obtain professional training and to acquire new skills. The YESTD is dedicating Youth Entrepreneurship Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI) to increase the availability and accessibility of micro-finance for vulnerable groups and micro-‐enterprises, as well as to increase access to finance for social enterprises.

On the One hand, Academic development, Which ensures That future Professionals and Skilled workers Are trained By the system; On the other hand, innovative development, where entrepreneurial spirit is taught, promoting innovation and creativity.
The role/expectations What does the work schedule look like? Please give as much detail as possibleThe challenges set on our minds as practitioners grouped in four areas: (1) overcoming current attitudes and social norms, (2) being adaptive and staying one step ahead, (3) defining youth leadership, and (4) developing shared meaning, and widening access. There was also discussion of various specific areas of practice individuals believe need further attention and improvement. Our current culture, particularly in the South-Pacific Asia, is one that values speed, attention to surface issues, and short-term thinking. Leadership development, whether it is focused on adults or youth, is often counter-cultural and involves long gestation periods of in-depth refection, and motivation towards working on personal changes. This disconnect between the demands of youth leadership development and the context in which youth live their lives makes practice difficult and requires us to be even more attentive to using technology and assessing impact, both in the short term and over time. In the view of some summit participants, it also relates to the need for a “business case” for youth leadership development. South-Pacific Asia is challenged by cultural ableism to create a regional model that provides both open economy and social support for less developed nations, and in turn, its poorer citizen. Ideally, a social entrepreneurial project should be able to be adapted to fit different cultural environments. In this way, its reach will be much broader and bring change to more communities. Social entrepreneurs are essential in today’s world, which still suffers from many social problems such as economic crisis, war, diseases, discrimination, displacement, homelessness, poor health and nutrition, and social exclusion to name only a few. In this context, social entrepreneurs are needed more and more. There will never be a limit on the number of social entrepreneurs needed in the world. Instead, there is always a place where such people can make a monumental difference in the lives of others. Their drive to improve the world and their dedication to see their solutions and plans come true to act as a ripple effect. All you need is an idea, a creative and innovative mind, resources, flexibility, and an implementation plan. Social entrepreneurs are imaginative critical thinkers, who strive for long-term, expansive social change. With an identified social problem, they look for solutions that can benefit society at large.
