Access Planet Organization, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering individuals with disabilities through technologies, successfully conducted a two-day share market orientation training in Itahari of Koshi province, Nepal, on the 23rd and 24th of May 2024. Access Planet is dedicated to promoting the economic empowerment and inclusion of persons with disabilities, particularly young women. Recognizing the increasing accessibility of online share trading platforms in Nepal, the organization identified a gap in accessible resources and training materials for individuals with visual impairments and other disabilities.

The rise of online share trading in Nepal has opened new avenues for individuals, particularly young women with disabilities, to participate in the financial market. However, traditional trading platforms often lack accessibility features, hindering their full participation. Recognizing this gap, Access Planet, with the support of Global Fund for Women, designed this training program specifically for individuals with disabilities, incorporating accessible software and techniques.


The main objectives of the training are,

  • To introduce and orient participants with disabilities to the share market, fostering their economic empowerment.
  • To equip participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to navigate the share market using accessible technologies.
  • To bridge this gap by providing participants with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to participate in the share market confidently.

The training curriculum was divided into six sessions, each session focused on specific aspects of the share market which are as follows:

  1. Introduction to Share Market:
  2. Share-Related Terminologies:
  3. Entering the Share Market:
  4. Practical Session on Applying for IPOs:
  5. Share Market Governing Bodies:
  6. Share Market Analysis Applications:

The Access Planet Organization's share market orientation training program successfully provided essential knowledge and skills to 24 individuals with diverse disabilities in Itahari, Nepal. This training empowered them to navigate the share market with greater confidence, potentially paving the way for greater financial independence and inclusion. The organization's dedication to accessibility and continuous improvement ensures future programs will be even more inclusive and impactful.


  • 25 participants gained fundamental knowledge about the share market, equipping them with a foundation for informed investment decisions.
  • All the participants were introduced to accessible techniques and software, empowering them to navigate the share market independently, particularly those with physical disabilities and visual impairments.
  • The participants gained the hands-on skills to apply, check, and sell IPOs independently.
  • The program empowered and equipped participants with the confidence to participate actively in the share market.
