Raising Awareness on Human Trafficking
Human trafficking in Nepal has been prevalent for decades; the United Nations estimates that between 12,000 and 15, 000 girls are trafficked to India and the Middle East every year mainly for the purpose of sexual exploitation and forced marriages. Additionally, 1, 000 women and girls are trafficked into South Korea and China each year by marriage bureaus promising citizenship and jobs. In an effort to counter the daily violation of women’s rights, we work to provide education, awareness and prevention on the topic of human trafficking. One way we achieve this is through prevention and community outreach. Visiting various communities, we strive to engage people in a dialogue about the reality, dangers and possible impact of either being smuggled or being a victim of trafficking. In many communities this has taken the form of puppet shows, drawing in
Youth Rally Calls for Change and Greater Employment Opportunity
On August 12 we celebrated International Youth Day. This years theme was “ The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production”. Nepal is entering a new phase in its demography and The United Nation’s population fund has stated, “ [n]ever before have there been so many young people in Nepal. Never again is there likely to be such potential for economic and social progress.” Currently 35% of the population is below the age of 15. Despite a large youth population, unemployment and underemployment continue to be a challenge for those in the 15-29 age bracket. The activities that were organized today aim to raise awareness about the crucial role youth play as agents of social change and the potential they hold for both current and future development. The day also recognizes the
Project Red Moon: Ending the Stigma
  In many parts of the world, menstruation tends to be  taboo topic , surrounded by silence and shrouded in myths. Yet , it is emerging as pivotal issues for gender equality , human rights and development. Restrictions imposed on women during their periods have become so common. Due to a lack of facilities at school, at work and in public spaces, women often prefer to manage menstruation at home, meaning they are unable to participate in cultural, educational, social and income-generating activities. Poor practices and unsafe materials compound this problem.  In Nepal 41% of girls indicated they do not attend school during their periods due to a lack of privacy for cleaning and washing.   In a bid to eradicate the social stigma and ensure dignity for women and girls, our team launched Project ‘Red Moon’. The projects goal was to
International Women’s Day: Rallying for Equality
 On March 18, 2016, we celebrated International Women’s Day and expressed solidarity with women and their rights and equality. The theme for the 2016 International Women’s day was “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step it up for Gender Equality.”In commemorating the day, GPYC team was present at the city rally. Joining a varied group of NGOs, social activists, celebrities, police and youth, our team carried posters and signs with messages of Women’s rights and equality in Nepal’s constitution. People from around the world joined in solidarity, walking through Kathmandu’s streets with their sisters and brothers.             International Women’s Day not only allows for the refection on past achievements of women in their fight for gender equality, but also serves as a reminder that there is still a ways to go until gender parity is achieved. Participating in the rally was another way in
School Peace Initiative : promoting schools as zones of peace
  Education is a key tool in promoting peace and cultural diversity. A culture of peace must take root at home and in the classroom from an early age. However, the skills for peace and non-violence can only be learned and perfected through practice. Active listening and cooperative learning are some of the skills to develop. It is a dynamic, long term process, and a life-time experience. It means providing both children and adults with an understanding of and respect for universal values and rights. It requires participation at all levels be it in family, school, places of work, play grounds, and the community as well as the nation.     School Peace Initiative, as one of the project of GPYC, educates and creates opportunity to young students to interact and creates friendship. As a youth-centered, community development project, the primary goal of SPI
