Building Peace in Nepal: Ensuring Participatory and Secure Transition Project (EPST):(2013 – 2014 Years)

RUWDUC implemented the EPST program in partnership with Search For Common Ground (SFCG) and with support from UN WOMEN. EPST’s activities took place in Kailali and Kanchanpur districts.  This program’s objectives were:

  • To promote women’s right
  • To protect women and encourage their participation in the post-conflict period

The program reached out to Local Peace Committees and its District Coordination Committee members to enhance their capacity through orientation and training. Capacity building training for conflict affected women (former combatants and victims) from both districts and civil society organizations engaged in peace building were organized; these enhanced and consolidated their networking capacity. Additionally, conflict affected women were identified and provided opportunities to take preparation classes for the Public Service Commission examinations, peace memorials were established and seed fund provided to conflict affected women to promote peace in the districts.
