  6. 6. CHOOSING A PROJECT We brainstormed to see what project we could take up. During the brainstorming session we shared our ideas and came up with the following list:  Awareness campaign on personnel hygiene  Providing stationary materials to the underprivileged students of rural areas.  Awareness on violence against women & teenage health.  Awareness to promote open defecation free zone.  Campaign on road safety
  7. 7. DETERMINATION OF PROBLEM Violence against women is a burning issue in today‟s context even though many women are empowered and aware now. In Nepal, although, women are leading in many sectors, there are many girls especially in slum areas who are facing harassment and violence. All the members of our group agreed that this problem would be the most appropriate as per our financial means as well as our project time duration.
  8. 8. CHOOSING THE PROBLEM When we read in the newspapers about the cases of women and girls who are facing the problems of violence, we observed cases of women and girls violence in one month as recorded in the newspapers. There are hundreds of such cases unrecorded throughout the country. In this situation, we decided to do what is possible within our capability and then started a project named “STUDENTS UNITING AGAINST VIOLENCE (SAVE)”. In this project we will ask support from the volunteer groups or various organizations that are working in the field of girls/ women violence in Nepal. We will collect some money from the students voluntarily and will use that money to support the orphanage by providing some support. The support program will be targeting local slums. The types of cases and their number according to the newspaper from January 26th to February 27.

  10. 10. CHOOSING THE PROBLEM CONT… In addition to the news paper articles we also went to observe the " Occupy Baluwatar Movement “ in Baluwatar, Kathmandu, Nepal on 20th April 2013 in order to gain an insight on the current state of women violence in Nepal. On the suggestion of our facilitator Mrs. Sarita Dewan, we also visited Prerana, a non- governmental organization which helps the poor and needy people, where we met Mr. Moti Lal Lama, the program coordinator of the organization. After having a conversation with Mr. Lama, he gave us feedback to visit slum area of Manohara, among the various alternatives which were slum areas of Sankhamul, Tripureshwor, Bhaisipati and Manohara.
  11. 11. Interviewer Person Question Answer Anshuka Rani Das Bimala Ghimire ( Chief of Projects, Prerana) Has the situation of women violence increased in Nepal or it has just been coming to media a lot? The problem has not increased but the people have become more aware than before and they are approaching concerned authority to get their rights and justice. Shiska Raut Bimala Ghimire Do teenagers face violence too? The problem has high intensity among the age group of 18-25 years but it has affected teenagers too. Asma Pun Moti Lama ( Secretary- Prerana) What are the programs that you all have been Carrying out for Women problems? We have been conducting programs like awareness on women empowerment, sanitation, skill development training and support programs. Nikita Yadav Moti Lama Which area of Kathmandu has the highest intensity of this problem? Almost every field is affected but the slum area is the most affected because it is lacking in most of the services and faces many problems. Aashma Poudel Moti Lama Do people frankly confess their problems? No, they don't. But these days the number of women reporting violence has increased not because the problem has increased but due to aware citizens these days. AN INTERVIEW WITH PRERANA ORGANIZATION
  12. 12. PROBLEM AREA We have selected a local slum in Bhaktapur ( Manohara slum) which consists of 600 households as our problem area. The target of our project "Students Uniting Against Violence(SAVE)" is to aware the girls of this slum about violence by interacting with them in a positive manner and through awareness campaigns. We especially are targeting the teenage girls in this local slum as they have less security and facilities compared to the slums of Kathmandu. We are also planning to give some materialistic support to the slum girls and some health advices.
  13. 13. Interviewer Person Question Answer Aayush Thapa Kul Bahadur Lamai (Dail Community) How big is this slum? What is the condition of people and children here? This slum is very big and has about 600 households and is about 1km in radius. The condition here is really bad here. People don't have general facilities too. Both women and men work as laborers and some keep livestock too. Children go to school but they don't have access to resources and most children work. Anshuka Rani Das Are there cases of violence in the slum? Yes, there are. Domestic violence is vaster and many cases of harassment have been reported too. Asma Pun Do the girls here have any idea about violence and harassments? I don't think so because as people here are conservative and backward they don't have idea about violence. Shiska Raut How many schools are here in the slum? There is only one school that is Saraswati Primary School and Dial community also gives education to little children and provides food to many children.

How does this group work? Yes we have a group of around 18-20 teenage girls. We teach the girls about the physical changes and help them in empowering themselves. We also give materialistic supports. Aayush Thapa Do people readily tell about the problems they are facing? No they don't. They tend to hide the problems they are facing in the fear of being humiliated.

Asma Pun Has any incident occurred recently? Yes, these incidents keep happening. but people have been a little aware that they need to fight for justice and rights.
  16. 16. WHY WE SELECTED MANOHARA SLUM Manohara is a place located at Bhaktapur, in the banks of the river Manohara . People have been residing in that area for six years. We selected the manohara slum of Bhaktapur because of the following reasons: 1. Poor environment sanitation. 2. Pitiful condition of girls. 3. Increasing rate of violence in the slum community. 4. Only a primary level school in a community of 600 households. 5. Different organizations are working there but none of them have targeted women violence as the problem. 6. People belonging to 23 different ethnic groups reside in the same slum.
  17. 17. TARGETED GROUP After the observation of the slum area we found out the Dail Community provides food every morning to the children and the teenagers of the slum. After having a talk with the principal of 'Shree Saraswati Prathamic Vidyalaya' , we found out that minimum 25 teenage girls from the slum come to the school and the dial community. So we decided to target 30 students within the age group of 12- 16 yrs that come to the school, as the are still immature and need more awareness and empowerment.
