In Nepal, women and children suffer from widespread and multiple forms of violence. It takes place in the home, on the streets, in schools, the workplace, during conflict and even in times of peace. It manifests itself in its most prevalent forms of domestic and sexual violence. Violence also occurs in the form of child marriage,Chadian, and discriminatory practices like son preference or denying girls access to formal education, forced labor and trafficking. Such kind of violence, which occur every day across Nepal prevents women and children to live in dignity, violates their fundamental human rights and impedes them from achieving their full potential. However, many of these incidents of violence are neither reported or even discussed at the family or community level. These incidents are hidden under silence for the sake of family Jataka (pride and respect), fear of being stigmatized, societal norms and values, ignorance or limited knowledge and lack of access or trust to the justice system.Violence can be prevented. Formulation and implementation of strong laws, backed by services for protection and strong communication interventions for social and behavior change is vital to guaranteeing respect for the fundamental rights of women and children, most notably their right to security and to live their life free of violence. On the other hand, increasing awareness is the key to prevent violence like child labor, child marriage, sexual abuse, awareness raising is a two-way street, fostering communication and information exchange to improve mutual understanding and mobilizing communities and wider society to bring the necessary change in attitudes and behavior.
