Chief Executive Officer, Skill Campus

While hundreds of youth leave the country every day looking for employment opportunities overseas, one entrepreneur is determined to put a stop to it. Prithivi Raj Parajuli established Skill Campus as a hospitality consultant and training division so that youth in the city could become a part of a skilled workforce.

Affiliated with the Council of Technical Education and Vocational Training, Skill Campus carries out various short-term job-oriented vocational and technical training for young people. The campus has maintained an open working environment, where students can be the first ones to explore and present their innovations. 

The effort of Parajuli, the CEO of Skill Campus, has made it possible for the campus to achieve success within a short period of time. However, Skill Campus, as the first hospitality institute in Itahari faced challenges in the registration. He hopes that the government can reform policy to simplify the registration of a company, which will make it easier for entrepreneurs to start their ventures and contribute to the economic growth of their communities.
