HAMRO GARDEN

 

For 11 years HELP/Nepal has been committed in fighting inhuman poverty, which deprives persons of their dignity and humanity, and in the promotion of the rights of the poor, supporting the role of women, pointing out the need to give them the right place in the society and in our initiatives.

Children are the real beneficiaries of the world and we have to commit ourselves in giving them a better world and a better life, beginning from their parental environment. HELP/Nepal wants to intervene with actions that will have effects in the long period, taking care about social, psychological and economic aspects that personally affect the victims of violence, and organising event on local and national level to make women aware of their rights and to make public opinion more aware of these problems. We want to give a real help to the victims of sexual violence assuring them physical safety, protection in case of a legal proceeding, assistance and legal support during the trial. HELP/Nepal wants to assure to the victims a future, offering them the possibility to finish their studies and to enter the labour market through vocational trainings and/or micro-credit programmes.

For this reason, “Hamro Garden” will move its first steps through a major theatre event – V-Day – that will bring visibility at a national level: acting as a cornerstone, thanks to the discussion brought forward by the event, HELP/Nepal will take action to reinforce the rights – violated for so many years – of women. In fact, HELP/Nepal wants to establish in Kathmandu a Rehabilitation and Advisory Centre for the victims of sexual abuses.

The centre will assure medical cares, psychological treatments to overcome the shock of the violence and also will support the victims’ families to beat the mark of disgrace that society impose to victims. We will commit ourselves so that “flowers of our garden” will find the well being and the tranquillity lost, focusing on reaching their personal goals.

The strength of the social and cultural impact of our intervention will be proportionate to the financial support received from our partners-donors.
