The Employment Fund (EF) was established in 2008 as a result of a bi-lateral agreement between the Government of Nepal and the Government of Switzerland. HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation Nepal has been managing the Employment Fund Secretariat since its establishment. The objective of the fund was to impart skills training to youth who are unemployed mainly because they do not have proper education and skills demanded by the market. From 2008 to 2015, the fund imparted short-term, market-oriented technical skills training to almost 100,000 young people- mostly poor and disadvantaged youth, with a special focus on women rom disadvantaged backgrounds.
