Women-run advocacy organization improves lives in Nepal

Children in Nepal

Women at the grassroots in Nepal are being empowered to address all forms of violence against them and their children.

Community-based Paralegal Committee programmes, supported by UNICEF, were created initially to stop the trafficking of persons.

But more recently, the committees are settling domestic disputes, matters relating to property rights, fighting discrimination and also promoting family health rights.

John Britte UNICEF's Chief Communications officer described to Dianne Penn how these paralegal committees work.
