Awaj Aviyan Nepal

Awaj Aviyan Nepal will work in areas that are a source of trafficking in Dhading district, working in 15 village areas, and along the highway from Dhading to Kathmandu to reduce the number of children and adolescents in commercial sexual exploitation. They will support community groups and groups of children to learn about the issues and about gender based violence more broadly, initially working through 75 such groups. They will also carry out street drama performances, and will organise trainings for a wide range of other relevant local committees, such as school management committees, transport and hotel assocations. They will help families of vulnerable children to access skills training and income generation activities. They will conduct workshops for police and government authorities, helping them plan inspections of hotels and restaurants. They will broadcast radio programs to raise awareness and will train journalists.
