Challenge

As migrant workers return to Nepal following COVID -19, with no job prospects, they are reunited with their family, in extremely challenging circumstances. This results in increased alcohol abuse, domestic and family violence. Traffickers take advantage of impoverished families luring innocent young children and women to a terrible fate. The programme will support 9 vulnerable villages in Bidur Municipality, Nuwakot including families and the extended community. Total population in project: 8600

Solution

Newly formed Community Development Clubs will be the vehicle for change. Community animators will be selected from these clubs to mobilise the community through a number of local level initiatives to bring about positive behavioural changes. Larger scale community events will be organised that attract members of all ages to attend, covering the key focus areas of the project. Prior to each event, community animators will promote it widely within their community to ensure maximum participation.

Long-Term Impact

Community Development Clubs will remain active beyond the project period to develop a long- term sense of pride. They will collaborate with the programme to continue community development and monitor key issues over time. Using animators and different mediums, including street theatre, story-telling and other interactive methodologies effective long- term change will be achieved. Increased awareness on the dangers of trafficking, domestic and violence will protect the most vulnerable.
