Milan Kendra Nepal
Post-conflict, women in Nepal continue to be vulnerable to human rights violations including human trafficking. According to recent reports from the Human Rights Commission of Nepal, the number of cases of human trafficking reported to police is on the rise. The vast majority of trafficking cases (over 96%) are women, and 24% are from the eastern province of the country.
Milan Kendra Nepal is registered with the eastern Panchthar district of Nepal and was established to work towards human rights and good governance. Its mission is to engage the communities to create employment opportunities at the local level – specially the youth – and establish economic stability. To do this, the organization conducts knowledge and skills training to communities on human rights, democratic norms and values for peaceful solutions in times of conflict. The organization seeks N-Peace’s support to implement a campaign to encourage families and villagers to report human trafficking cases and ultimately support the eradication of trafficking of women and girls. The initiative will conduct dialogues, help train and inform women of their rights and responsibilities, and conduct public awareness campaigns via social media in the province.
