|Intergenerational skill transfer is a valuable approach for promoting income generation, empowerment, and sustainable development within communities. It involves passing down traditional skills and knowledge from one generation to the next, and can help to safeguard cultural practices, traditions, and crafts while also supporting economic and social development. The Shikharapur Community Learning Centre (SCLC) in Nepal has implemented an intergenerational skill transfer program as a way to promote income generation and empowerment among community members. The program focuses on traditional crafts such as weaving and pottery, and involves training younger members of the community in these skills through mentorship and apprenticeship with older, more experienced members. The program has been successful in promoting income generation among participants, as they are able to sell the products they create to tourists and through local markets. It has also contributed to the empowerment of community members, as they are able to take ownership of their own economic development and contribute to the sustainability of their community.
