Empowering Indigenous women and girls in Nepal to advocate for their rights
Through the Canada Fund for Local Initiative’s support for the National Indigenous Women Forum, Canada is empowering Indigenous women and girls in Nepal. In 2021 2022, the project provided training sessions that reinforced the leadership skills of marginalized Indigenous women and girls and helped them better advocate for their rights.
Through this project, more than 160 Indigenous women and girls were able to:
- increase their knowledge about their rights
- learn how to access local resources
- build and strengthen their networks
- learn how to better identify rights violations
The training also helped them identify solutions to common issues such as inaccessibility of land, child marriage and loss of Indigenous languages and practices.
