Challenge

Kamlaris are former child laborers who worked as domestic helpers from early age of six up to their marriage for minimum remuneration. The Government of Nepal abolished Kamlari practice but it failed to bring rehabilitation package to them. As a result, most of the former Kamlaris have been facing problem for managing livelihoods, continuing their education and involve in any income generating activities. As they are not able to continue their education, there is high ratio of child marriage.

Solution

The project will provide education support to 103 former Kamlaris of Dang district of Western Nepal. Out of 103 girls receiving support, some will get technical education in the field of health and agriculture. The project will provide educational materials including books. Similarly, the project will help to establish emergency health fund, which will support former Kamlaris to receive life-saving medical support. The project will also raise awareness about child marriage, teenage pregnancies.

Long-Term Impact

With the support, we will educate 103 former Kamlari girls allowing them to be involved in decent jobs and earn livelihoods for their families. Similarly, these girls will be acting as a change agent in the society to solve some of the community issues like child marriage, school drop-out, and teenage pregnancies among others. The former Kamlaris will also receive proper treatment in case of some medical emergencies, which will improve their health condition.
