Advocating for Gender Equality
In Nepal, women represent 50% of the countries population. However, due to socio cultural and political norms, women are often excluded from having an active role in society and thought to belong in the domestic sphere, taking care of the home and raising children. The demands of household chores and societal restriction cause many girls to drop out of school. Girls and women faces further challenges in their daily lives including gender based violence, fewer opportunities in the workspace and societal traditions that place women below men. In Nepal, there continues to exist unequal power relationships between genders.

To combat gender inequality, GPYC is committed to educating children on the importance of gender equality, helping them understand why it is essential. Active within the schools, GPYC promotes gender equality through inclusion-based games and activities. Ultimately, “ We believe that by being a part of the team, the students have the chance to be advocates who shape and share equal opportunity.”

Our team are instrumental in raising awareness about gender equality and are constantly engaged in activities promoting gender equality within communities and schools. In a project called ‘Beyond Pinks and Blues’ the team organized and facilitated Play for Peace activities at Bhakti International School, Hattigauda, Kathmandu. The activities allowed for an open discussion on gender based discrimination and stereotypes, discussing paths to eradication. The day consisted of classes and games aimed at breaking down the stereotypes and empowering the participants.

Acting and street skits also play a valuable role in opening and facilitating a dialogue about gender discrimination and equality. In October, we took to the public places of Ratnapark and Dumbarahi and through the street plays provided an awareness of women’s issues and gender equality. The street plays drew crowds of all ages and challenged people to think differently about cultural norms and gender equality.
