Today one-day self-defence training program for girls was organized on 8th March marking International Women’s Day by Sano Paila in collaboration with Sanskriti. Eve teasing and harassment/violence towards women have been increasing rampantly in Birgunj. The program was organized with an objective to train girls/women of Birgunj to be able to defend themselves from such harassment and violence.
Sano Paila from its establishment has been working on women empowerment, and advocating for women rights and safety. In partnership with local authorities, civil society organizations and community people, they are committed to make Birgunj as a ‘Women-Friendly City’.
