Project Background: 

Project Background:

Mugu and Humla districts of Karnali region, project target area, are some of the poorest areas in Nepal. Due to their remoteness and poverty levels, their development lags behind most of the country. The fight against poverty in remote mountainous regions of Nepal is hampered by women’s marginalization. Women have low social status and are subject to harmful traditional practices and discrimination. There is a lack of awareness of women’s rights, and women’s opportunities to participate in income generation are limited.
