GLOBAL LOCAL

 

Women do not have an easy life in Nepal, especially after being victims of discriminations and violence, not only physical but also psychological. We are talking about violence that often, however, are not perceived as that, just because made everlasting through several generations and considered “habitual” aspects of the interaction among the other sex.

Luckily, many women are well aware of the problems affecting their lives in the Nepali society and they want to break the silence that surrounds them, disseminating a new awareness: women do not have to be punished just because women, their rights have to be fully respected.

We want to be part of this social awareness process at the national level and therefore HELP/Nepal is committing itself in organising and promoting an outstanding event: V-Day.
