Mission Statement

To empower marginalized groups of women to understand their rights and roles in their families and communities.

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. In addition, there is a greater risk for children to be trafficked and exploited since the earthquake because there is less job stability.

Description

There are 15 women in the group and the average family has four children. They are illiterate and do not have much education to keep children safe. This project will help generate income locally and educate the children about the risks of trafficking and exploitation. The women meet every month and discuss issues of keeping children safe and start saving (for example, $1 per month), and can also take loans from other group members. We help them to start micro-enterprises by providing them with loans and support.
