What we want to achieve…
We hope that each woman who works with Samunnat Nepal will:
Know her own rights
Know how to advocate for herself
Know about her reproductive system
Understand how her child develops
and how this will affect a child’s capacity to deal with stress, trauma and change in the family unit. Many children involved with Samunnat have witnessed violence towards their mothers and, in some situations, they have been the target of violence themselves. Sometimes this has contributed to behavioral issues and physical problems.
Be supported to be an effective and loving parent
Learn how to stay physically and emotionally healthy
Learn how to resolve conflict and negotiate good outcomes wherever possible.
Learn how to establish and maintain a budget.
Learn skill development
Better understand the legal system,
Now there are organisations established to empower women. At Samunnat Nepal, we have seen thwarted, defeated women become visibly stronger after earning an income and meeting other women, their didi-bahini (sisters) who have gone through the same thing. They get the confidence and resources to face the challenge of standing up for their rights and making better lives for themselves and their children.
