This quarter, amid COVID-19 crisis, PHASE continued its health, education and livelihood activities maintaining strict protocol on infection prevention. Now that covid situations are getting worse and school sector is closed again. Here we share a story of one of the several girls who participated in our recently completed training and empowerment programme for adolescent girls.

Hajari (name changed) is a 14 years old studying in calss-8 in Yuna Basic School, Bajura. The village is perched on a hilly terrain of Yuna area of Bichchya village, located at a 4 day walking distance from the nearest busroads. Each day she walks about an hour to reach the school. She is one of the empowered girl from PHASE Girls Empowerment Coaching Sessions. Here is what she says about her life and experience taking part in the programme

"Being an elder daughter of my family I have to manage alot of chores before I leave for school. Several times I have to give up classes for household works. But this time, I managed to attend full class. The classes by PHASE Nepal was of different kind. I learned that practices like staying in shed during menstruation, avoiding healthy food like curd and milk during menstruation are wrong practices.I never enjoy staying aside or treated differently during menstruation. I want to share with my parents about such harmful practices, how it can hamper mental and physical growth. The Girls Empowerment 14 days' session had enlightened me. I shared my knowledge with my sisters as well. I hope such practice will get over soon."

PHASE has been running school based capacity building of teachers and adolescent girls with tailored activities to address the local problem and needs and help them in self-empowerment.

We, PHASE team, thank all the donors and supporters for supporting our community based projects and bringing real impacts in the remote communites.
