Rights and Skills Training for survivors

Since Education and awareness are the key to create change, BVS Nepal organise regular advocacy programmes to educate survivors and their family about their basic rights. This will support victims who wish to advocate for change.
The last session has been held at Siddhartha Cottage on the 10th December 2015 with presence of 30 survivors in which three of them were from Nepalgunj, one from Hetauda, one from Dhangadi, one from Janakpur and rest of the others from Kathmandu. The programme was lead by advocate Sushma Gautam, who presented laws on violence against women with examples of several cases.
Advocacy program included information about violence and its types, laws against culprit followed by open sharing and discussing session in which few survivors with their strength shared and raised questions concerning their cases.
