Needs Statement

This group of women are from a "Dalit" community, which is a low-caste, "untouchable" part of the wider community. They are not educated and their only livelihood is agriculture. After the earthquake, most of their livelihood resources were destroyed. There is a great concern for food security after the earthquake because their food storage systems and buildings fell down. There is also greater risk for children to be trafficked and exploited since the earthquake because there is less job stability.
