Challenge

In Nepal the context of violence against women and girls is driven by social, cultural, religious and gender norms, is compounded by years of political conflict which increased risk of violence. This is evident as 48% of women have experienced violence sometime in their life. This is detrimental to women as it is shown that violence is a leading factor in the development of mental health issues. Furthermore mental illnesses can lead to a cycle of poverty, which affects the woman's family.

Solution

We provide counseling services as well as direct services that help with mental illness, to woman and girls that have experienced violence. By providing therapeutic services, legal support, medical support, income generation activities, food, medicine, physical health check-ups, counseling sessions, clothes and housing, we are able to help alleviate their mental illness and reintegrate them back into their communities with newly acquired skills and mental health wellbeing.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide services to 100 woman and girls a year to help them off the streets, while simultaneously helping to alleviate their mental illness that they are experiencing do to violence and other hardships.
