Background/Project:
Historically, violence against women and girls has been in existence and a widespread in
Nepali society but still unreported problem in Nepal. It is reported that one-third married
women have experienced emotional, physical, or sexual violence from their spouse in their
marital relationship. The women experience violence when trafficked into forced labour or
prostitution. Between 5,000 and 12,000 girls and women aged 10 to 20 years of age are
trafficked every year, 75 percent of whom are below 18 years of age and the majority of
whom are sold into forced prostitution.
In Nepal there exist six kinds of violence against women and girls in mainly sexual abuse,
incest and rape by family members and other, recruitment by family members into
prostitution, neglect by family members, even to the point of death, feticide and infanticide,
dowry demand and wife abuse.
This project aims to provide human rights education from professionals through awareness
raising campaign to the community people especially women and girls. The different
activities like Drama performance education in public with the message on ‘Say “NO” to
Violence against Woman’ will be conducted. A forum in public place for interaction with
local community people is organised to have interaction on Women Violence, problems and
their solutions. The target population is leaders of community, teachers and especially
women groups and teen aged girls. It aims to develop raising peace and protect human rights.
