Hairdressers Without Borders volunteers trained twenty-two Nepalese women in September 2019 to be self-sufficient in the hairdressing and beauty industry. These women have an extreme poverty background and in most cases are victims of domestic violence. That is why it is so heartwarming to watch our students grow within this hairdressing program and observe great progress and new developments in each of them.
It is so powerful when women work together as one. It becomes a strong sisterhood, taking care of each other and experiencing a deep joy in a protected environment.
Every day they increased their knowledge of their new profession and showed strong motivation.
This year Juliette den Ouden international Hair & Make-up Artist and owner of JDO Academy traveled as the ambassador of the organization to Nepal to give hair styling and make-up training to all the women.
She realized that on the other side of the world due to poverty and shortcomings of women’s rights, there are not many opportunities for many women to earn their own money and build their own future. That’s why she supports Hairdressers Without Borders and sees with her own eyes the difference you can give with vocational training in places like this.
