Homestay and Girls Leadership Training at Jumla

We conducted 3 days Homestay Training and 4 days Girls Leadership Camp at Jumla in coordination with RCDS Pvt. Ltd. and PACE Nepal. The Homestay Training took place from 29th April till 1st May 2018 and the Girls Leadership program was held from 2nd May till 5th May 2018. Jumla being a remote district was not explored much due to lack of transportation but now with the district being linked by road, the place has now the chance for tourism promotion. Thus keeping this in mind we conducted the 3 days Homestay Training. There were 36 participants in the training. Together with this, we conducted leadership training to 75 girls from 5 different schools. The girls have less opportunity in every way and are also forced into early marriage. They are as well at risk of human trafficking due to illiteracy. Thus considering this we conducted the training. They were very active and show great enthusiasm during the training.

We are very thankful to RCDS and PACE Nepal for helping to successfully plan and implement these training. We as well are thankful for the facilitators for their active participation in making these training a success.

 ‘I learned many things through participating in this program. I learned more about menstruation, how to be hygiene, rights, and saving money. Not only this, had I learned about the violence faced by women in the society and to stand up against it. I would try my best to put in practice whatever I have learnt from this program.’ A participant
