" Millennium Fellowship is such a platform for self exploration where we can interact with distinct groups and also contribute to the society. I am more excited to work on my project related to Decent jobs and economic growth during this COVID crisis. And I believe that through this platform I will be able to reach maximum number of people around the world. It would be a huge thing if my work will be able to make an impact. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Decent work and Economic growth
Project 'Decent work and Economic growth' will be conducting a research-based project to assess how the COVID-19 crisis has impacted the employment and wages in the sectors deemed most at risk in Nepal. ILO reports indicated that nearly four in every five workers most vulnerable to disruption are in the construction, manufacturing, and trade sectors. Also, one in every six youngsters has quit working since the beginning of the corona virus pandemic while the individuals who stay employed have seen their working hours cut by 23 percent, according to another ILO report. This project is the analysis of the impact the COVID-19 crisis has had on the vulnerable job holders in Nepal with the projection of possible road maps that would minimize disruption of livelihoods and enable a boost in its economy with proper integration of these workers.
