Historically, violence against women and girls has been widespread in Nepali society but is still an unreported problem in Nepal. It is reported that one-third of 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, mainly sexual abuse, incest and rape by family members and others, 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- 32 raising campaigns to people, especially women and girls.
