Completion of Paralegal Training Program 2016
SASANE has completed the Paralegal Training Program 2016 recently. 50% of the female survivors of Human trafficking and child marriage who actively participated in the training successfully passed the paralegal examination. Both the interns from Kathmandu and Pokhara, majority of the girls passed the examination.
The passed paralegals are now working successfully in the 25 police stations of Kathmandu and 6 police stations in Pokhara. Some of the girls are now settled in Ghyangphedi - rural mountain village of Nuwakot. They provide the skill development training classes to the girls and adult women of the respective village. They make huge number of beads bracelet, necklase and other accessories. We are now in the process of selling those accessories to the travelers who come to SASANE office in Kathmandu for lunch.
Construction of Toilets in eight villages of Nuwakot
After the successful completion of the Earthquake Rehabilitation Program by SASANE. We started the construction of toiltes in eight rural mountain villages of Nuwakot. Nuwakot is considered to be one of the rural village of Nepal where people do not have toilets. To raise awareness among the villagers about the importance of sanitation/cleanliness, SASANE with the help of the international donors and the Government of Nepal recently completed construction of eight toilets in eight villages of Nuwakot respectively.
After the construction of toilets, the villagers are seen more conscious about cleanliness issues and are found to be more aware about using toilets. The SASANE sisters who have been placed in these eight villages regularly monitor and make sure that the toilets have been used by the villagers and are also responsible to teach about hand wash and the importance of sanitation and cleanliness in their village.
Samrakshak Samuha Nepal (SASANE) has already completed the paralegal training 2016 in both Kathmandu and Pokhara. The paralegal interns in Kathmandu are still in their practical internship in 25 police stations in Kathmandu as the examination date is still not fixed. But in Pokhara, the paralegal interns have already appeared their paralegal examination. Among 26 girls 23 have successfuly passed the examination. Some of the passed girls are planning to work in the police station itself and some are planning to work in their hometown.
In this way till date SASANE has been able to produce 275 successful paralegals since the starting of the program. While this Kathmandu, because of the sudden transfer of the judge in the DIstrict Court, the routine of the examination is still not out because of which the girls are still in their internship. We call the girls every one month in the office to hear about their achievements and challenges and also collect reports of the number of application they have written.
We hope to receive your help and support to empower the girls and to help other girls in need by providing them with legal awareness and education to make them independent and confident in themselves.
Samrakshak Samuha Nepal (SASANE) has now started the 'Advanced Paralegal Training Program' from 8th March 2016. This training is for a month. The already passed and certified paralegal girls are qualified for the training. In the advanced paralegal training, the girls are taught about the court procedures and the case filing process in the court only. The victims are provided with the help and assistance related to court and are provided with the legal aid.
The girls will even proceed with the practical based knowledge in the court itself. The main motive of this program is to empower girls with the knowledge of the court procedures as well. The victims will also be helped both in the police stations and the court as well.
We hope to receive your help and support to work further effectively.
Here is my report for the Empowering Survivors of Human Trafficking (6231)
Report: Beginning of The Paralegal Training Program 2016
Recently, SASANE has started its paralegal training program 2016 both in Kathmandu and Pokhara. We have 30 girls and women coming everyday in SASANE office to receive the training. This time we have all the 30 girls who have been rescued from brothels in India and are all the survivors of human trafficking. This time the syllabus of the paralegal training has been changed and we had a slight difficulty in organizing the paralegal training.
We will have the theoretical training for one month where we will be teaching them about the legal rights and information regarding the constitution and human rights. The girls this time are able to grab the things taught quite easily. After the theoretical training we will have the girls placed in the police stations as the part of their practical internship.
With your little help we will be able to help these girls get the legal information and also help them gain economic independence. We expect that we will get the help from your side always in the future as well.
