International Women’s Day was celebrated in our site offices as well as in Kathmandu. RAP3 Mugu Humla Link project celebrated IWD 2019 with local women in Gamgadhi, Mugu. There was a discussion around how to end Chhaupadi, violence against women and girls as well as the impacts alcohol abuse has on women.
All women from three LRUCs (Luma, Bama, Pandhara) were involved and though there were many serious discussions, there were also positive vibes about the future of women in society, and how RAP3 MHLR is helping to support women’s empowerment. The event was concluded with typical Deuda songs from the women of each LRUC and a chance to also celebrate women.
