Female-friendly spaces in a post-earthquake Nepal

Organisation: Girls Not Brides Year: 2016

In this case study, we explore Aura Freedom International’s female-friendly spaces in post-earthquake Nepal.

With local partner Apeiron, they have been working to empower women and girls and make them agents of change by providing them with space to report violence, seek services, and attend educational workshops so they can obtain legal documentation such as birth certificates, claim ownership of their land and open bank accounts – all crucial steps in preventing child marriage and supporting married girls and women to live fulfilling and empowered lives.
