Kathmandu,16 June, 2015 :Â 100 women human rights activists of eight districts that suffered worst by the April 25 quake are provided training on disaster management byÂ National Alliance of Women Human Rights Defenders (NAoWHRD).
The training is intended to help quake-victims braing back to their respective lives and aimed to offer psychosocial counseling to the quake-hit, shared Dr Renu Rajbhandari, Chairperson of the Alliance.
Rajbhandari also said that since the majority of the people in the quake-hit districts were still in awe of the tremors and anxiety-ridden, chances were that family squabble would erupt over any petty domestic issue.
Rajbhandari said, “In many quake-hit districts, the role of males in the families was not clear. It could lead to tensions in family and women folks in the family may have to bear the brunt of the male’s wrath,” adding that this training would help bolster the morale of the women to minimize the potential family tension.
Worst affected districts including Kathmandu valley would be reached by the trained women human rights activists and utilize their knowledge and skill for the welfare of the women, according to Srijana Pun, Chairperson of Women for Women Forum.
Chairperson Pun said that the quake which caused a heavy loss of lives and properties in the country directly affected the children and women, the most vulnerable group among the survivors.
