Mahila Saahaara Samajik Sanstha was established in 2016/06/29 by Jhal Kumari Dulal who previously had 18 years of experience of leading Rural Women Development Multipurpose Cooperative. Jhal Kumari Dulal engaged herself in relief and support packages during mega earthquake by aligning herself in “Tewa’s Hamro Gau Ghar Campaign”. She after that campaign, registered her own organization called “Mahila Sahara Samajik Sanstha”. Her 18 years of experience in the field of “Women, Child and Senior Citizen” has provided a tremendous impact in organization. Organization has been providing various advocacy, awareness programs and skill based trainings to women in that locality.

Mentorship program has helped women to step out of their regular daily chores and mobilize themselves in individual and societal well-being as well. Through mentorship program, mentee organization has operated systematically. They have prepared strategic planning for 5 years with the help of resource person. Women members have enhanced their strengths and capacitiesin carrying operational activities smoothly. They plan their daily and monthly activities, summarize activities conducted so far, collect feedbacks and take actions accordingly on how and why activities were not accomplished. Mentee organization has been actively working for the well-being of the community. They conducted various awareness program and relief support packages to the needy ones. They also conducted socio-psycho counselling program to those who were suffering from depression and other mental health related illness due to COVID. Though, mentee organization is located in geographically less privileged area, it has tried to include members from various wards.

Relief Building

Global Inclusive Adventure Organization

On August 2020, a landslide struck Golche Lidi village in Jugal Rural Municipality-2, Sindhupalchok. A total of 210 households were dislocated from Lidi Village last year due to a massive landslide. 30 houses were completely damaged and the remaining houses were partially affected. The flood resulted in the displacement of large household. Approximate 1300 people have now been living in Banskhara in a temporary shelter from last year with minimal supports.

Global Inclusive Adventure Organization with support of Tewa provided 760 people which include a total of 383 men and 377 women. There were almost 100 children up to the age of 5 years. The relief support also catered to 15 people living disability, 13 pregnant women, and 4 lactating women. As part of relief support, 500 pieces of corrugate sheets were distributed to the displaced households. Lactating and pregnant women were provided with warm clothes while new born babies were provided with warm clothes. Additionally, sarbottam pitho (super flour) was provided to mothers with weaning children.

The intermediary relief support provided by the Global Inclusive Adventure Organization has really helped the displaced community to built back better.

In the year 2060 B.S, with a motive to uplift the existing condition of women of Makwanpur district, ManhariGauPalika, Warda no. 6 Pratapur, an organization called “Mahila Uthhan Tatha Sip Bikash Kendra”, was established. The main objective of the organization was to empower women of that region economically through various capacity building programs.

Organization was established and operated under the leadership of Rina, after her demise, due to the lack of second line leadership, organization was down falling in every aspect. Entire activities of the organization from renewable to auditing and day to day operative and functional part were hampered and organization was in the verge to collapse. 

In the process, Tewa decided to provide “Mentorship Program” to the organization in order to bring organization back into normality. Under Tewa’s mentorship Program, Mentee Organizations are provided with various supportive actions in the form of guidance, capacity building programs, leadership development, etc.

Tewa has introduced mentorship program in the organization from past two years. The first and foremost activities conducted after introducing mentorship program was creating an executive boards so, that mentee organization can function formally. After long debate and discussion with all the members, under mentorship program fifth meeting, new elective committee was formed through Annual General Meeting with 11 members under the leadership of Laxmi. Executive committee were coached, guided and trained from time to time so, that they can fulfil their responsibilities responsibly and dutifully. Executive committee started to conduct meetings on a regular basis via physical meet or phone calls in order to make discussion on organization smooth operation and formal functioning. After three years, organization renewal activities was proceeded forward and was completed. Through mentorship program, organization slowly and gradually started to operate functionally and smoothly.

Mentee Organization was fighting for its land issues from a long period of time.When, new elective committee was finally formed, mentee organization was able to get back its legal documents (Lalpurja) of land ownership. Community people were troubling them and were trying to encroach the land from a very long period of time.Today, organization has its own secured land and building, where, they have their own office premise. With the support of Tewa, they have also planted tree around their premise which has made building look more beautiful. They have also been successful in tying cordial relationship with the local agencies and government. Through Tewa’s grant, organization distributed various relief support such as mask, food relief, awareness pamphlets, etc. during pandemic. They also conducted “Awareness program on Covid and its Mitigating Measures” in coordination with Manhari Government Hospital Medical Staffs in prescribed locations.

Through Tewa’s grant and support program, organization is doing very well in agriculture, cattle farming, out of which, they earn in between Nrs. 350,000-7,00,000 (USD 3,500.00-7,000.00) of annual income. Mentorship Program has helped organization to grow and expand. They conduct AGM every year, perform audit and renewal activities on a regular basis. They have also learned to establish cordial relationship with local agencies, identifying target communities and their needs. Organization today has become a strength of pillar to local communities and women out there.

Training to mentee organization
Training to mentee organization

Under the mentorship program, we encourage our mentee organizations to come up with any training that would be useful to them. During the meeting, we realized different mentee organizations needed training on different topics. As per the discussion with Executive Director and Grant Making Manager, different training programs were provided to mentee organizations with a motive to strengthen their capacity. Training programs were conducted in five different districts (Gorkha, Dakshinkali, Makwanpur, Ramechhap, and Sichupalchowk) which were led by mentee organizations. There were 80 women participants of 10 mentee organizations. Similarly, the “COVID Awareness Program” was conducted in 3 wards of Makwanpur.

Different types of training were provided in each district as per the need. In Gorkha, report writing and proposal writing training were provided. In Sindhupalchowk, training on “Legal Awareness, Leadership Development, and Organizational Improvement” was provided in coordination with “Janjaati Mahila Uthan Kendra”. In Ramechhap, training was provided on “Accounting and Administration Management”.

Similarly, Makar Ganesh Mahila Krishi Sahakaari Sanstha took a lead to provide training on “Legal Awareness and Gender Equality” in Sidhupalchowk. This specific training benefitted 25 women from the community. The training helped the participants boost their confidence, raise awareness, and uplift self-esteem. After the training, some of the women in Sindhupalchowk felt the need to raise their voice against family members and husbands for injustice and different forms of violence; physical, mental, and psychological, they were facing. They didn’t realize the fact that what they were facing was wrong. They wanted to even go through legal procedures if needed. The training had helped women to raise their voices. They have received pro bono legal service to get property from their partner. This training helped them realize that they shouldn't be facing violence from a partner or their family. Training which is conducted after identifying the needs/demands of the participants and mobilizing local resource person becomes more effective, supportive, and productive.

An organization in Makwanpur District, Mahila Uthhan Tatha Sip Bikash Kendra is one of our mentee organizations. Mentorship program in this organization started in early 2019. There was a need to strengthen this organization due to many obstacles it was facing. We found that the organization needed strengthening in official documents related to renewal of the organization, no timely meetings or AGM conducted, and the communities almost forgot the existence of it.

With all these problems, mentorship program was aimed to provide a push to this organization. The mentor and Tewa helped in every way possible to support this organization. When the mentorship program was started in this organization, the mentor started with having constant meeting with the members of mentee organization. Together, they also reviewed the vision, mission and objective of the organization which gave clarity to their overarching goals. The process also included reflection on positive and negative aspect of the organization which helped the organization to plan their activities likewise. Members were encouraged to participate in their own programs and engage in their community activities.

After few years of implementing this program, we saw some drastic change and growth in that organization. The organization focused on planning, and implementation of different programs as required in the community. The organizations structure was revised and everyone started to have meetings and discussion frequently. This strengthened the internal communication of the organization. The local level government and communities have started to acknowledge the work of our mentee organization and in collaboration with local government, the organization is organizing different programs. The organization has also started to get funds from other international organizations and also started to think of being self-reliant by saving up certain sum. This organization focused on empowering women through different livelihood programs to strengthen their financial situation.

These small initiatives from an organization has proven to be of very important. If any organization is willing to do better, they just need a little push and support. Tewa has always been there to support the initiatives and address the need of community level women's organization.
