Amidst the Nepal’s political turmoil and decade long conflict, the country is in its hard struggle to establish a stable economy. Although every part of the society has been affected by the economic and environmental challenges, we are all aware that underprivileged children and women of rural areas are the most vulnerable to every crisis a community faces.
Every year hundreds of of women and children experience poverty, discrimination, suppression, mal- treatment and violence throughout the world. It is even worse for women and children of one of the poorest countries like Nepal. Thousands of Nepali women and children are deprived from their basic rights to education, protection, expression, healthcare, development, and many times even the very survival is in question. The economy highly depends upon agriculture and forestry with a whopping 1/3rd of GDP of Nepal (World Health Organization Nepal, 2015). The development policies of the past have contributed to some growth in the modern sector largely based in urban areas. However the growth in agriculture has stagnated for about five decades (Sharma, 2006). There has also been decline in poverty rate since 1996 from 42% to 25%, the rural parts of the country still suffers tremendously (Wagle 2015). For 96% of the poor that are living in rural areas, life is harsh (World Health Organization, 2013). There is meager literacy rate of only 48.6% in Nepal, of which 62.7% are males and 34.9% are females (World Population Review, 2015). Women – especially poor women – are often trapped in a cycle of ill health exacerbated by childbearing and hard physical labor (WHO, 2000).
