Empowering Women

The Empowering Women project seeks to increase access to justice, economic empowerment and participation in decision-making to enhance the prospects of all women and encourage them to participate freely and live with dignity in society.

Nepali women lead dis­ad­van­taged lives.  Women are expected to act sub­serviently, receive infe­rior edu­ca­tion com­pared to male coun­ter­parts, and are forced to work for low, or no remu­ner­a­tion. Emo­tional and phys­i­cal abuse further con­tributes to their neg­a­tive self-image and low per­sonal expec­ta­tions. The level of aware­ness of human rights and women’s ability to influ­ence deci­sion-making processes is also limited by lack of infor­ma­tion, edu­ca­tion, capac­ity to claim their rights, and gov­ern­ment response mechanisms.

The project is focused on net­works of women’s groups to:

  • support women in increas­ing their access to their rights
  • build their capac­ity to realise equal par­tic­i­pa­tion in deci­sion-making processes
  • improve their liveli­hood options

This will be achieved through empow­er­ment edu­ca­tion which will promote their oppor­tu­ni­ties for lead­er­ship and par­tic­i­pa­tion in coop­er­a­tive ventures
