YOUTH EXODUS BAJURA AND JUMLA- NEPAL
Hundreds of youths of Bajura and Jumla districts, western Nepal migrate to India after harvest season, in search of job for better livelihood. Unproductive land and lack of awareness about modern farming are adding to the numbers even more. But the Karnali Employment program (KEP) implemented by Ministry for Local Development (MLD) in Jumla has solved the problem to some extent by providing job opportunities. The programme has capacity to deploy about 134 locals to build irrigation canal and reservoir for Dapkana Kuirimare hydropower.
