- Girl education & Gender equality: A one-day awareness program on girl education & gender equality conducted. 25 women from the women’s group located in the communities of Dobate, Sikaritar, Aale and Pokhari participated. The community, specially located in remote and rural areas, still lacks the awareness of the topic. In terms, the community is highly influenced by patriarchy. Empowerment is the key tool to come over from the ongoing situation. A very difficult task, but still not impossible! Through this program, it is tried to make participants understand the aspect of being a valuable part of the society and become the guideline so the message is transferred to each and every community member about the equal right of education and equality of the gender.
- Leadership and Non- Violent Communication: A one-day program on Leadership and non-violent communication organized in Dobate village. 25 selected women and youth participated. Basically, people living in the remote and rural areas do have less capacity to self-lead towards the destination and they lack proper communication skills. It is always important to reach these people and provide supportive guidelines for the development of a meaningful future with self-oriented leading capacity and developed communication skills.
